Top Netflix Exec on ‘Making a Murderer’ Season 2 and Chris Rock’s $40M Payday

Netflix’s deep pockets extend to the other half of her job, too, where as the head of comedy programming, she made a big bet on Chelsea Handler and paid a reported $40 million to lure Chris Rock back for two stand-up specials. – Natalie Jarvey, The Hollywood Reporter
