Madam Secretary syndicated on Netflix, WeTV

Madam_SecretaryCBS Corporation has signed a multi-platform syndication agreement for its political drama Madam Secretary, giving off-network rights to Netflix and WeTV.

Netflix will lead the off-network launch in mid-2018, with the previous three-season episodes currently available for streaming on the platform.

AMC Networks-owned WeTV will also launch the series on cable in 2018. In addition, CBS-owned stations will launch it next year.

“CBS dramas continue to be in demand on all viewing platforms as their subscribers and viewers covet content that appeals to mass audiences,” said Scott Koondel, chief content licensing officer at CBS Corporation.

“This proven off-network model will provide tremendous incremental value for both CBS and our licensing partners.”

Marc Juris, president of WeTV, said: “Our growing viewership has demonstrated a clear interest in real and relatable characters through WeTV originals on Thursday and Friday nights and popular acquired shows like Madam Secretary, an acclaimed series that aligns well with our brand.”
