Netflix has announced FYSee – an exhibition space that aims to bring the best of Netflix’ library to life for industry and guild members (and it doesn’t hurt that its leading into Emmy voting this season). The multi-level, 24,000 square foot experiential space launches on Sunday, May 7 with a private kick-off party, and on Monday, May 8, FYSee will host an “In Conversation” with Academy Award-winning actor Kevin Spacey as he discusses the show that started it all, House of Cards.
Netflix’s FYSee will feature a full month of programming designed to connect the industry with the shows, creators and talent they love in wholly new and unusual ways. FYSee’s goal is to combine diverse, globally reaching television, and one-of-a-kind conversations and events, with above and below-the-line displays and interactive installations to create a kind of singular experience unique to Netflix.
The space is anchored by installations surrounding new Netflix hits such as The Crown and Stranger Things which already made an impact on the awards circuit. The Crown garnered Golden Globe wins for Best
Television Series – Drama and Best Performance by an Actress – Drama as well as SAG Awards for both Claire Foy and John Lithgow in their respective categories. Meanwhile, Stranger Things was praised by SAG with the ensemble prize for drama series, and received the PGA’s Norman Felton Award for Outstanding Producer of Episodic Television, Drama.
The program also features panels and/or exhibitions from returning Emmy nominees and winners including House of Cards, Master of None, Grace and Frankie, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Bloodline and Narcos; new arrivals such as Black Mirror, One Day at a Time, Gilmore Girls, Marvel’s Luke Cage, Dear White People, A Series of Unfortunate Events, The OA, The Get Down and 13 Reasons Why; documentary programming Five Came Back, 13TH, Amanda Knox, Chef’s Table, Last Chance U and The Keepers; the critically acclaimed animated hit BoJack Horseman and Sarah Silverman‘s anticipated comedy special Sarah Silverman A Speck of Dust, among others. Thematic panels, additional events and special performances to be announced.
Netflix FYSee will be located in Beverly Hills. Programming will be by invitation for industry professionals.
