The Weinstein Co’s Oscar front-runner The Artist will make its pay TV debut on Netflix rather than on traditional cable as part of a multi-year licensing agreement announced today. The deal will make Weinstein foreign-language films, documentaries and other titles available exclusively to Netflix’s streaming subscribers in the U.S. within a year of their theatrical release. It’s the first such agreement between Harvey and Bob Weinstein’s indie distributor and Netflix; terms weren’t disclosed. Undefeated, nominated for a Documentary Feature Oscar, also will make its pay-TV debut on the streaming service. Other Weinstein titles included in the arrangement are Sarah’s Key, W.E. and Coriolanus. “It is a fantastic coup for Netflix to acquire The Artist and the package of additional titles,” Weinstein co-chairman Harvey Weinstein said today in a release announcing the pact. “With this deal, a company that loves movies, Netflix, joins forces with a company that is built on that same love.”
