Netflix announced its desire to bring more faith and family-based shows to its subscribers.
Netflix Vice President Cindy Holland attended the 2018 Television Critics Association’s Summer Press Tour in Beverly Hills, Calif., on Sunday and, according to Fox News, Holland revealed their hope to provide faith and family based content.
“It’s a very important audience to us,” Holland stated.
“It represents a significant percentage of the population not only here in the U.S., but around the world,” she continued, adding that she “grew up in a place that was very much steeped in those traditions.”
Netflix already does feature a number of films and shows under the title, Faith & Spirituality. According to Instant Watcher, 73 pictures fall under that genre including “The Case for Christ,” “The Bible” series and “Prince of Egypt.”
“I want to make some great programming for my cousins and their families too,” Holland told reporters at the 2018 Television Critics Association. “So it is something that we are focused on really building out a robust slate of family-friendly programming.”
When asked to share what content the streaming giant is gearing up to release, Holland said that there was “nothing” she could “talk about today.”
