IN THE NEWS

Corona Cancellations: Broadcast network Fox Entertainment will no longer host pre-upfront program development presentations in cities across the country, and canceled an affiliate board dinner scheduled take place during the NAB Show, April 18-22 in Las Vegas… ACA Connects postponed its annual Summit in DC, due to concerns over the COVID-19. The event had been scheduled for March 17-19; the org plans to announce a new date as soon as possible… FreeWheel Media postponed its 2020 “NowFront,” slated for Thursday, March 12 in NY, with plans to reschedule at a later date.

Meanwhile, more big players pulled out of SXSW, which at our press time was scheduled to go on. WarnerMedia and the company’s news net CNN are the latest to take a hall pass. CNN’s Jake Tapper’s film based on book The Outpost reportedly will still play the fest. Netflix, Apple, Facebook and Twitter are among others who already said they will skip the fest, which runs March 13-22.

And… the Television Academy is looking closely at contingency plans for Emmy Awards “For Your Consideration” events in light of escalating coronavirus concerns. At press time all events were on as scheduled, but the Academy sent a letter to members noting it’s “exploring options for the FYC season should the situation worsen, such as live-streaming and/or taped-only panels with no audience.” The organization is seeking member feedback on options.

CNN’s Dana Bash and Jake Tapper, along with Univision’s Jorge Ramos and Ilia Calderon, will serve as moderators at the next Dem debate, March 15 in Arizona. Coverage will air 8-10p.

PRODUCTION & DEVELOPMENT

Chernobyl creator Craig Mazin is teaming with Neil Druckmann to adapt Sony Playstation videogame franchise The Last Of Us for HBO. The co-production with Sony Pictures Television in association with PlayStation Productions takes place 20 years after modern civilization has been destroyed as a hardened survivor is hired to smuggle a 14-year-old girl out of an oppressive quarantine zone.

Hannah Simone (New Girl) and Elizabeth Hurley (The Royals) will topline an untitled CBS comedy pilot from Corinne Kingsbury, scribes John Francis Daley & Jonathan Goldstein, Trill TV, Kapital Entertainment and CBS TV Studios. Simone and Hurley also are producers on the pilot of the semi-autobiographical story about a daughter who enlists her mom to help raise her son when her and her husband’s career take off at the same time—only to discover the matriarch needs more parenting than the child.

Now’s the time to show members of your team how much their contributions are valued. Nominate yourself or a colleague for the Cynopsis Top Women in Media Awards and join us on September 24th in NYC for the awards gala, where media execs from entertainment, tech and sports unite to raise a glass to media’s game changers.

Ridley Scott’s Scott Free production company scored screen rights to dystopian thriller I Alone Survive, the comedic debut novel from Bethany Clift, to develop as a series.

She’ll continue as exec producer and showrunner for On My Block while writing and producing other projects exclusively for the streamer. Iungerich also created Awkward on MTV.

Magnolia, Discovery’s joint-venture with Chip and Joanna Gaines, greenlit Growing Floret for its forthcoming network. Series brings viewers to Washington’s Floret Flower Farm, one of the country’s most successful organic flower farms, and follows founder Erin Benzakein and her team as they seek to turn 20 acres of chemically damaged and overfarmed land into an extension of their operation.
