In addition to disclosing Redbox Instant wants in on the original programming craze, CAA lawyer Peter Micelli indicates House of Cards didn't come cheap for Netflix (NFLX -1.8%). "House of Cards' started at $4.5 million [per episode] and [executive producer David] Fincher took it way above that." The first season of House of Cards features 13 episodes, and Netflix has already committed to a second. Meanwhile, the NY Post reports Coinstar's (CSTR +2.1%) recent $350M debt offering will be used to finance buybacks, and thus help keep activist investors at bay.
