Deadline reports: “Netflix has the rights to stream a number of Kew Media Distribution titles in various territories and made administrator FTI Consulting a financial offer to maintain these licenses.
“Netflix insisted that the majority of its payment to FTI be passed on to the producers of the titles in question,
“Which in the case of Line Of Duty would have been ITV Studios-owned World Productions.
“FTI is understood to have rejected these terms, leading to a break down in talks.”
