Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) has gained the exclusive rights for Aziz Ansari’s next stand-up special called “Buried Alive.” The special will be debuting on November 1st.
This is not the first stand-up special exclusive that Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) has gotten their hands on. Last week, they gained the rights to carry Mike Birbiglia’s stand-up.
Eventually, Ansari will make his stand-up special available for download at a cost of $5. Until then, I am sure that Netflix is paying him a pretty penny to keep it to themselves.
Earlier this month, we reported that Ansari has signed a book deal about how technology affects him as a single man. That deal includes a $3.5 million advance.
