8.28.13 … “Thanks, you sucked three days out of my life!”

tech,  TV, Netflix, House of Cards, Kevin Spacey, Business Insider:  “Thanks, you sucked three days out of my life!”

Everyone in the tech industry is passing around this video of Kevin Spacey talking about how Netflix (and other tech companies) will blow up the traditional TV industry.

In an edited version of Spacey’s speech below, he touches on how Netflix, which has produced a handful of excellent original series this year, has the potential to disrupt the traditional cable and network TV model of forcing content creators to make a pilot before accepting a show.

For example, Spacey says there will be 146 pilots made this year at the cost of $300-$400 million. Only 56 of those will actually be made into a series. “That makes our ‘House of Cards’ deal for two seasons really cost effective,” Spacey says in the speech.
