Netflix creates first “made-for-connected” series

Hulu has done it, so it was only time before Netflix did it too — original programming is coming to your Netflix queue.

Actor/producer Kevin Spacey (American Beauty) and director/producer David Fincher (The Social Network) have joined forces to produce the very first made-for-connected-television series — a political thriller called House of Cards — that will only be accessible via streaming from Netflix by its subscribers.

There is a commitment for 26 episodes, two 13-episode seasons.

So my question from libraries: are we going to see DVDs as part of this? If online streaming services like Netflix and Hulu are now in the content creation business, how are we going to provide them to our customers?

(Yes, I know it’s not a PR topic, but still relevant.)
