Anyone else see it?
I'm going to check it out.
A friend of mine told me that Netflix greenlit the show based on their own demographic data. Apparently, their data showed that a large percentage of viewers who liked political drama, Kevin Spacey movies, and David Fincher movies, so they knew they'd have a sizable, built-in audience right out of the gate. So it's not as risky for Netflix as you might think.
