The epic adventures of Marco Polo will premiere exclusively for Netflix members to watch instantly in all Netflix territories in late 2014.

Commented TWC Co-Chairman Harvey Weinstein: “With the glowing success of series like House of Cards and Orange is the New Black, it’s clear that Netflix is breaking tremendous ground in the realm of streaming original content.”
