and elsewhere, that language and nudity were a factor in going with Netflix:

"I'm thrilled by the idea of a world where I'm not caught in the necessary grind of network television," Ms. Rhimes said. In addition, since Netflix doesn't have advertising, Ms. Rhimes doesn't need to worry about language and nudity. Netflix, she said, provides "larger creative freedom."

Other producers echo Ms. Rhimes's desire to be free of the demands of broadcast television. David E. Kelley, whose broadcast resume includes the hits "The Practice" and "Ally McBeal," has more recently produced for HBO and Amazon Prime and said he has no desire to go back to a broadcast or basic cable network.

Bloomberg and Chicago Tribune (and Fox) have boxed themselves out, similar to how Blockbuster didn't know how to evolve.
