Update: 26 September 2019 | 08:36 CET
An agreement between Dutch public broadcaster NPO and Netflix to co-produce Dutch content for Netflix could be on the rocks. According to NRC sources, Netflix believes the board of NPO  wants to stick to its own rules for broadcasting rights.Both parties agreed last year to offer five NPO drama series on the Netflixs platform over the coming months. The deal has now been shelved: it seems the NPO may not be able to produce and broadcast the series and films in question.
