"It's feasible that we would double the load that we did this year [with eight new shows]," he said.

"People's tastes are wildly diverse, and I want to be able to appeal to all of those tastes and across demos."

Sarandos also has high ambitions for the service as he aims to pull in big names to boost its original programming, including Sofia Coppola, Warren Beatty and Jodie Foster.

The popular streaming service is due to launch a new season of Arrested Development on May 26, following the success of its original political drama House of Cards.
