IN THE NEWS

Chris Harrison is pressing pause on his role as host of “The Bachelor,” following controversial remarks he made during an “Extra” interview with former Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay. Harrison had excused the racial insensitivity of a contestant on “The Bachelor” who was photographed at an antebellum plantation-themed fraternity formal in 2018, shared QAnon conspiracy theories in posts, and “liked” Confederate flag-related TikToks. “The historic season of The Bachelor should not be marred or overshadowed by my mistakes or diminished by my actions,” wrote Harrison on Instagram, referencing the current Bachelor, Matt James, who is the first Black male lead. “To that end, I have consulted with Warner Bros. and ABC and will be stepping aside for a period of time and will not join for the ‘After the Final Rose’ special. I am dedicated to getting educated on a more profound and productive level than ever before.” Harrison also apologized to the Black and BIPOC community, giving thanks “to those who have reached out to help me on my path to anti-racism.”

Fox News Media’s Maria Bartiromo, Jeanine Pirro and former host Lou Dobbs filed separate motions to dismiss last week in response to the defamation lawsuit by electronic voting company Smartmatic. Fox News Media’s had filed a motion to dismiss on Monday, February 8. “Not only has Smartmatic failed to identify anything that could form the basis of a defamation (or disparagement) claim against Bartiromo; it has failed even to adequately plead actual malice,” said the Bartiromo filing.

Fox Corp. will hold a virtual upfront on Monday afternoon, May 17, with AVOD Tubi in the mix.

Analyst firm LightShed Partners has formed venture investment company LightShed Ventures, focused on early-stage tech, media and telecom startups. LightShed Ventures Fund I will invest $75 million principally in the Seed and Series A rounds of category-defining private companies across the TMT ecosystem. The company was co-founded by general partners Richard Greenfield, Walter Piecyk and Brandon Ross, who formed LightShed Partners in 2019, and Jamie Roberts Seltzer, most recently at Waverley Capital. “LightShed Partners will serve as the foundation for what we do at LightShed Ventures,” said Greenfield. “Our unique, thematic research remains our life blood. The principles behind our research will underpin our investments. But the research itself is just the start of our flywheel. Everyone knows we have one of the biggest megaphones in TMT to amplify our ideas and strengthen our brand and mindshare.”

“Chappelle’s Show” is back on Netflix. The streamer pulled the sketch series off the air at the request of Dave Chappelle, who was displeased about Comedy Central and ViacomCBS licensing the show, which originally ran from 2003-2006, without additional payment to him. During an Instagram post, Chappelle thanked fans for refusing to watch. “You made that show worthless because without your eyes, it’s nothing. And when you stopped watching it they called me. And I got my name back. And I got my license back, and I got my show back, and they paid me millions of dollars. Thank you very much,” said Chappelle, who also thanked Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos, and gave a shout-out to Chris McCarthy, President, ViacomCBS’ MTV Entertainment Group for “making things right.”

Comcast reported it holds a 9.3% stake in sports-first streamer FuboTV, worth over $300 million. While a number of programmers took FubotTV stock as party of their carriage agreements, AMC Networks reported it no longer owns any shares.

Kantar used its AI-powered creative evaluation tool, Link AI, to determine which Super Bowl ads and themes resonated most with viewers. The creative themes that drove the most impact included the ads that:
· Were rooted in relatable human insights (i.e. McDonald’s “TY for Driving Thru,” Baby Huggies “Welcome to the World, Baby” and Okios “Proface)
· Spoke to a brighter future versus the difficulties of the past (Bud Light Seltzer “Last Year’s Lemons” and Old Spice “Winner”)
· Offered solutions to people’s real-world problems (Microban “Keep Killing 24H,” Dexcom “Rant” and Hellman’s “Fairy God Mayo”)
· Celebrated the potential of the individual (Sam Adams “Horses,” Rockstar “Engery Spotlight” and Under Armour “Under the Armour”)

White House Deputy Press Secretary TJ Ducklo is out, after Vanity Fair reported he had threatened to “destroy” a Politico reporter who was working on a story about his relationship with an Axios reporter. “We accepted the resignation of TJ Ducklo after a discussion with him this evening,” said White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Saturday. “We are committed to striving every day to meet the standard set by the President in treating others with dignity and respect, with civility and with a value for others through our words and our actions.”

Booted from Apple and Google app stores and Amazon’s web hosting service after the January 6 riots at the Capitol, social networking site Parler announced it will be back this week. The site, blamed for being used by Donald Trump supporters to help plan the attack, said it is now “built on sustainable, independent technology and not reliant on so-called ‘Big Tech’ for its operations.” Said interim CEO Mark Meckler, “When Parler was taken offline in January by those who desire to silence tens of millions of Americans, our team came together, determined to keep our promise to our highly engaged community that we would return stronger than ever…Parler is being run by an experienced team and is here to stay. We will thrive as the premier social media platform dedicated to free speech, privacy and civil dialogue.”

PRODUCTION & DEVELOPMENT

Showtime is taking a closer look at the Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show

in “The Show,” a 90-minute feature documentary focused on the challenge of pulling off a massive musical production during unprecedented times. “The pressure to deliver an iconic, memorable and entertaining performance is felt well beyond the artist, as there are a number of people – behind the scenes – who are vital to its success,” said Todd Kaplan, VP of Marketing, Pepsi. “We are taking fans on the emotional and thrilling journey of what it takes to make the biggest show of the year – with the added complexity of doing so amidst a global pandemic.”

With Hulu documentary “Framing Britney Spears” making headlines, Netlfix has another project in the works about the pop star, from filmmaker Erin Lee Carr (“How to Fix a Drug Scandal”), reports Bloomberg. The news outlet said Carr’s doc began filming before “Framing” was released on February 5.

Fox Entertainment is developing an animated series with Hasbro’s content studio eOne and Fox’s Bento Box Entertainment based on the board game Clue. “We’re thrilled to team up once again with our great partners at Fox and also work with Bento Box on this exciting new series,” said Pancho Mansfield, eOne’s President of Global Scripted Programming. “Clue is an iconic whodunit property that exudes mystery and intrigue, and has fans all over the world.”

The CW is not proceeding with “Wonder Girl,” centered on a Latina Dreamer who learns she’s a superhero. “Wish I could’ve shared the world I created, but unfortunately it wasn’t meant to be,” tweeted executive producer/showrunner Dailyn Rodriguez.

Donald Glover (“Atlanta”) and Phoebe Waller-Bridge (“Fleabag”) will create and star in “Mr. and Mrs. Smith,” an Amazon series based on the 2005 New Regency film. Glover and Waller-Bridge will also serve as executive producers, with co-creator and executive producer Francesca Sloane (“Atlanta”), who will serve as showrunner, and executive producers Yariv Milchan and Michael Schaefer (New Regency), and Jenny Robins (Wells Street Films). “Talk about the dream team! Donald and Phoebe are two of the most talented creators and performers in the world. It’s truly a dream for us, as it will be for our global audience, to have these two forces of nature collaborating as a powerhouse creative team,” said Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios.

Casting notes: Roselyn Sánchez (“Devious Maids”), Sylvia Sáenz (“Betty en NY”) and Jeimy Osorio (“La suerte de Loli”) will join previously announced Kate del Castillo (“La Reina del Sur”) in the upcoming Peacock Original “Armas de Mujer, premiering later this year…Hannah Ware (“The First”) will star in Netflix sci-fi series “The One,” set to drop Friday, March 12…Joshua Malina (“Scandal”) has joined the eleventh and final season of “Shameless” in a recurring role…Also landing a recurring role is Beth Triffon (“Ten Days in the Valley”), on season eight of “The Goldbergs.”

Streaming is on the rise, with the average American subscribing to multiple services. But there is concern that as viewers emerge from lockdown, and/or start looking to cut costs, subscription models will experience a downtick. In Cynsiders,
Navdeep Saini, Co-founder and CEO of free, ad-supported streaming TV network DistroTV, explains the importance of thinking FAST.
