How Netflix uses analytics to help develop hit TV shows
More so than any other media entity today, Netflix is downright obsessed with original programming. Hardly a secret, the streaming giant has been rather forthright about its plans to make half of its streaming catalog consist of Netflix originals in just a few years time.
"We’ve been on a multiyear transition and evolution toward more of our own content," Netflix CFO David Wells said back in 2016. At the time, Wells divulged that approximately one-third of Netflix's library was comprised of original content, a figure which has likely risen considerably since then. Indeed, Netflix's laser-like focus on developing and acquiring exclusive content is why the company plans on spending upwards of $8 billion on content in 2018 alone.
