Netflix is famously secretive regarding its strategy, operations and audience. My course shines a bright light inside its ‘black box.’ I reveal the most promising roads that you can take with your project, and other paths to avoid.
- How much does Netflix spend on Originals?
- What kind of content are they looking for?
- Insights covering documentary features, series, specials and Reality / Lifestyle shows
- How do you pitch your project effectively?
- Typical production budgets & key deal terms
- 50+ key Netflix documentary decision-makers and influencers worldwide
The lessons you will learn about how producers successfully satisfy Netflix’s programming appetites are highly relevant to Disney+, HBO Max, Paramount +, Apple TV+, Hulu, Discovery+, Peacock and the other well-funded competitors that are rushing into the streaming market.
My course is co-produced with my trusted partner Desktop Documentaries. When you click thru to enroll or to get more information, you will arrive at the Desktop Documentaries checkout page, and you will need to create a Desktop Documentaries account in order to complete the purchase.

NEW ONLINE DATABASE
A great new feature of the course is my searchable database of 900+ Netflix documentary originals & acquisitions:
- The database covers documentary features, series, specials and Reality / Lifestyle shows
- Each entry lists the credited director, producers, key talent and production company.
- The database is a record of the A-Listers who are among Netflix’s preferred producers.
- These contact names are invaluable for producers who lack access to Netflix and who need to ‘team up’ with established producers to get their project developed and pitched.
- You’ll also find the Netflix documentary team members credited for working on projects.
