Netflix is exploring the launch of live streaming for unscripted series and Stand-up specials, this helps Netflix for using live voting for competition series and talent contests such as the upcoming dance competition series Dance 100 from The Circle producer Studio Lambert.
“The live comedy event featured around 300 stand-up performances across LA including Dave Chappelle, Larry David, and Pete Davidson. Many of the shows were being filmed with plans to air around 12 of them on the service. In the future, it could potentially air shows live, albeit with a few seconds delay in case things get saucy.”
Alternatively, the live reunions for shows such as Selling Sunset, which just aired a reunion special for its season five. Netflix’s new plan set up a whole new raft of unscripted series to use the technology, bringing it into line with the linear networks, which often air live specials for big competition series such as ABC’s American Idol and Dancing with the Stars, which is moving to Disney+.
The streamers already experimented with different release patterns for its unscripted series and social experiments such as The Circle and Love Is Blind and the move would add further intrigue to such shows.
