Award to Netflix Producer – level 2

24-01-2020 07:00

Ted Sarandos is the chief content officer at Netflix; he is in charge of the content that is on the platform. He brought the platform’s first original shows and you recently brought many original movies.

This year, a producers’ organization will give Sarandos an award for all of his work. The president of the organization said that Sarandos has made a platform for producers to make new work that people may not otherwise see.

However, all of that new content is expensive. Netflix may spend more than $17 billion on content this year, but it owes $13.5 billion.

Difficult words: content (written work that can become other work such as movies or TV shows), platform (a way to share work such as on TV, on movies, or online), producer (the person in a movie or a TV show who helps create it).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
