Netflix is a Silicon Valley company that depends on Hollywood for its content; Ted Sarandos is the guy in the middle, and has handled content acquisition for Netflix since 2000. Now he’s heading up the company’s efforts to create its own programming, by brokering deals to produce original series like House of Cards and a new season of Arrested Development. Before Netflix, Sarandos was an executive at video distributor ETD and Video City/West Coast Video.
