Netflix has big ambitions for its original content efforts, wanting to launch 20 scripted series per year. Of course, not all of the shows will be marketed towards American viewers, as the company looks to expand its reach outside of the United States.

"I think we can launch - successfully, high quality - around 20 original scripted shows a year, which means every 2 ½ to three weeks you're launching a new season or a new show on Netflix meant to be for really diverse tastes all around the world," said Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer at Netflix, during a recent conference.

Netflix has found great success by launching original programming - an effort that other streaming services and businesses want to emulate.
