‘Dynasty’ Reboot Gets International Distribution on Netflix

The streaming service’s international deal with CBS Studios comes after its similar deal to distribute “Star Trek: Discovery”

Following its earlier deal to distribute “Star Trek: Discovery,” Netflix has landed international rights to another CBS-owned series, the upcoming “Dynasty” reboot set to debut October 11.

The Dynasty reboot was ordered to series in May and was the networks first new series pickup for the 2017-2018 season. The modernized take on the classic 80s primetime soap follows two of America’s wealthiest families, the Carringtons and the Colbys, as they feud for control over their fortune and their children. The series will be told primarily through the perspectives of two women at odds: Fallon Carrington — daughter of billionaire Blake Carrington — and her soon-to-be stepmother, Cristal.

Like “Discovery,” “Dynasty” is expected to stream globally on Netflix, and will premiere on the service the same day it premieres on CBS.

But unlike “Discovery,” a web-only show that will serve stateside as the flagship for streaming service CBS All Access, “Dynasty” will be airing Wednesdays on the CW.

“Dynasty” stars Grant Show as Blake Carrington, Nathalie Kelley as Cristal, and Elizabeth Gillies as Fallon, with James Mackay, Alan Dale, Sam Adegoke, Robert Christopher Riley, and Rafael de La Fuente rounding out the cast. It’s executive produced by Josh Schwartz, Stephanie Savage, and Sallie Patrick alongside original series creators Richard and Esther Shapiro. Brad Silberling, who directed the pilot, is also an executive producer.

Deadline first reported the deal.
