Netflix is looking to become a one-stop source for all news and entertainment. As Netflix continues to find new ways to change the game of cord-cutting, they keep finding themselves back at talk television. Recently, the streaming giant introduced Joel McHale, David Letterman, and at one point, Chelsea Handler, to try out this format.
Now, it looks like they are giving it another go, but with a twist…a weekly news magazine.
News magazines are shows that run in the vain of 20/20 and 60 Minutes.Netflix plans on following those formulas with a new “sharp, balanced,” news program with a mixture of info and entertainment. This is the perfect formula to continue to lure away cable TV subscribers who love these type of shows.
