Peter Bart: Netflix Covets Kudos In Its Global Expansion, But Movie Battles Loom

The Netflix forays have put Hollywood on its heels because they’ve impacted so many fronts. For example, network gurus used to put down the streamer’s comedy initiatives, pointing to its reliance on “taste clusters” — a system purporting to predict viewership by measuring the tone and timbre of audience feelings. But lately Netflix has quieted skeptics by signing the likes of Dave Chappelle, Chris Rock and Jerry Seinfeld as well as pumping out a special every week. Typically, Netflix claims disinterest in demos and is silent on viewership. – Peter Bart, Deadline Hollywood https://ift.tt/2yijx5S
