The world is on fire. No, seriously.
For the first time ever, streaming service subscriptions have outgrossed cable TV subscriptions, according to a new annual study from the Motion Picture Association of America. That’s just one of the study’s new discoveries about how we consume entertainment.
And the entertainment industry is changing on the inside, too.
This week, former CBS director of entertainment, diversity and inclusion Whitney Davis wrote about the network’s glaring whiteness in a Variety op-ed:
The company has a white problem across the board. Did you know that there’s not one black creative executive working at CBS Television Network or CBS Television Studios? Of the network’s 36 creative executives — all upper management roles that deal with content development, casting, current production, daytime and alternative programming — there are only three women of color, none black. There is not one executive of color working in casting at CBS. The one Latinx executive hired in casting last year lasted eight months. He works at Netflix now.
We talk about these issues and more.
