Netflix is a big topic of conversation this week as the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) brings to the fore all manner of questions about digital connectivity and methods for providing content to the new technology being flogged at the show at the same time as ongoing Television Critics Association (TCA) events show off new titles for 2013. Netflix has been managing the transition from its first incarnation, a DVD rental house, to a nearly all-digital content platform. And to bolster the wide array of streaming movies available through Netflix, the company has a couple of high-profile pieces of original content set to premiere this year.

One is House of Cards, the political thriller series starring Kevin Spacey and produced by David Fincher, who also directed the pilot. Another is Hemlock Grove, a supernatural series based on the novel of the same name, with Eli Roth as exec producer alongside Mark Verheiden.

The first trailer for the show is online, and it features a look at the cast (Famke Janssen, Bill Skarsgard, Lili Taylor, Landon Liboiron and Dougray Scott) and quite a few odd sights and sounds of the Pennsylvania town in which they all come together. Read More »

It’s been a few months since we first reported that Netflix and Hostel helmer Eli Roth would be teaming for an original series titled Hemlock Grove, but it’s just now that the pieces are really falling into place. This week, Netflix and Roth finalized a deal for a 13-episode run to premiere exclusively on the streaming service in early 2013, with Famke Janssen (X-Men) and Bill Skarsgård (Anna Karenina) in the leads. The series will be written by Brian McGreevey and Lee Shipman based on a gothic horror novel by McGreevey that’ll hit shelves next week. More details after the jump.
