Could Netflix produce “The Dark Tower” plus new “Buffy” and “Twin Peaks”?

May 4, 2013

The technological leap that’s been made over the past 5 years has created so many opportunities for beloved fan projects to gain new life. No longer will network television have a stranglehold on deciding the fate of the show if not enough people watch it.

Netflix’s Ted Sarandos spoke with about the return of “Arrested Development,” and the newly minted “House of Cards.” Within the conversation, they begin tackling the tough questions… What other shows would he resurrect?

They ask him about “Arrested Development” creator Ron Howard circling Stephen King’s defunct THE DARK TOWER, which garned a shocking response: “I spoke to Ron about it, actually,” said Sarandos. “The last time we talked about it the thing was being kicked about HBO – but it’s no longer there. Once Arrested Development gets through we’ll keep talking about it.

The interviewer digs harder asking about TWIN PEAKS, receiving a bold proclamation of “Absolutely!” while also adding that they could even bring BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER back: “That’s one that’ll come up on everyone’s list. She’s a great character. If it was my property I’d do infrequent movies. There’s not enough kick-ass female characters like that.

Netflix has been stepping up their game by adding their own original content.  If they could bring back and produce old shows or projects that never saw the light of day, that’d be cool.
