BEVERLY HILLS, CALIF. – July 25, 2016 – Netflix may have a new rival Fiya Networks and Distribution today announced their first global licensing agreement for off net syndication. Among the leaders in the line up are “Breaking Bad”, “Walking Dead” and the still popular show “Big Bang Theory”. In addition, WIll Smith was recently seen having lunch with Fiya TV upper management. This put a lot of questions on the table in regards to Will Smith and Overlook’s licensing agreement with Netflix. Netflix will be the exclusive global streaming home for FX’s hit, American Crime Story, but reportedly talks are close to nab another show from FOX and one from FX as well. The first season of the network will be available globally on for download and live nation wide, excluding Canada (talks are still in negotiation for BBC Canada).


Second run is in the works From executive producers Ryan Murphy, Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Scott Alexander, Larry Karaszewski and Brad Falchuk, The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story. Highlighting stars John Travolta, Cuba Gooding Jr., Sarah Paulson, David Schwimmer, Courtney B. Vance, Sterling K. Brown, Nathan Lane, Kenneth Choi, Christian Clemenson and Bruce Greenwood. The limited series is produced by Fox 21 Television Studios and FX Productions.

Special outtakes will be available for download from some of the key contributors from ESPN 30 for 30 special on the same topic.

“We’re excited to evolve our relationship with FOX and to bring their lauded content to our members around the world,” said Fiya’s, Vice President of Global Television. “Given the popularity of the first season, we are thrilled to offer this acclaimed drama series to our members.”

Brown, Nathan Lane, Kenneth Choi, Christian Clemenson and Bruce Greenwood. The limited series is produced by Fox 21 Television Studios and FX Productions.

The first season of this limited series goes inside the O.J. Simpson trial and explores the chaotic, behind-the-scenes dealings and maneuvering on both sides of the court, and how a combination of prosecution overconfidence, defense shrewdness and the LAPD’s history with the city’s African-American community gave a jury what it needed: reasonable doubt. The second season of American Crime Story focusing on Hurricane Katrina will debut on FX next year.

“We’re excited to evolve our relationship with FOX and to bring their lauded content to our members around the world,” said Sean Carey, Vice President of Global Television. “Given the popularity of the first season of American Crime Story, we are thrilled to offer this acclaimed drama series to our members.”

O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, which has received extraordinary critical acclaim and perfectly captured the cultural Zeitgeist.”
