Netflix bring documentaries now exclusively online. 'Mitt' is the story of Mitt Romney's Presidential bid. And you won't see it on Television.


Original online programming moves on.

Netflix now move into the Documentary space with the announcement of 'Mitt', a documentary following Mitt Romney's bid for the US Presidency. 

It starts in 2006 and goes to the loss in 2012 but what's interesting is that this is typical of "digital" film making. Not the sort of thing that would end up on TV but it can end up on Netflix. TV stations are no longer the arbiters of content, thankfully. 

Because Netflix want new and interesting, exclusive content and this is a classic example of that. They should be thanked.

It airs Jan 24.
