Netflix picks up Blackstone

All five seasons of the Prairie Dog Film + Television-produced series will head to the streamer this month.

blackstone newNetflix has acquired the worldwide streaming rights to APTN series Blackstone, with all five seasons (39 x 60 minutes) of the show set to debut globally on the streamer this month.

The deal for the Prairie Dog Film + Television-produced series was struck between Netflix and Cineflix Rights, which holds the international distribution rights to the show. Cineflix Rights, the U.K.-based distribution arm of Cineflix Media, acquired the rights to Blackstone in early 2015 after inking a deal with PPI Releasing. PPI picked up the worldwide rights to the series when the show was in production on its second season.

In October 2015 it was announced that the series would end after five seasons on the air. The final three seasons of the show were subsequently acquired by CBC earlier this year.

Prairie Dog produced Blackstone in association with the APTN. Directed by showrunner Ron E. Scott, the cast of the series included Carmen Moore, Eric Schweig, Michelle Thrus, Tantoo Cardinal, Justin Rain, Gordon Tootoosis, Cheri Maracle and Roseanne Supernault across its five-season run.
