IN THE NEWS

WarnerMedia sibs The CW and HBO Max jointly acquired “Wellington Paranormal,” which launched on New Zealand’s TVNZ2 in 2018. The mockumentary, following two police officers from the “What We Do in the Shadows” feature film (not to be confused with the FX series based on the movie), will launch on The CW this summer, with episodes available to stream the day after the linear premiere.

With its telecast cut from the usual two hours to a pre-taped one hour, the 27th Annual SAG Awards will not include the presentation of a Life Achievement Award this year. It’s the first time since 1981 (when an award to President Ronald Reagan was rescinded) that it hasn’t been given out. Thirteen awards will be presented Sunday, April 18 on TNT and TBS.

The Department of Justice urged a US District Court judge to reject an argument by content creators that YouTube isn’t entitled to the protection of Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which shields web companies from lawsuits over their content moderation decisions. In a class-action complaint, YouTube creators argued that Section 230 violates the First Amendment by allowing the suppression of speech based on viewpoint.

“PEOPLE (the TV Show!)” has been renewed for three additional seasons, through 2024. Since its debut in September 2020, across Meredith’s local markets, the show has seen a 12.2% increase in HH ratings and a 12% increase in P25-54. “The fact is PEOPLE is retaining over 80% of the news magazine time periods we moved into, on par with the best-in-class,” noted Meredith Local Media Group President Patrick McCreery. “Most other news magazine shows struggle to retain their own audience at equal levels.”

Boat Rocker Media (“Orphan Black”) closed a $170 million initial public offering on the Toronto Stock Exchange. “Following the completion of our IPO we have enhanced balance sheet strength and financial flexibility to advance our growth strategy, against a backdrop of robust and growing demand for content globally,” said CEO John Young. “We are now in an ideal position to pursue a range of initiatives designed to further expand our creative and commercial capabilities and deliver shareholder value.”

Jay Leno apologized to activist group Media Action Network for Asian Americans for past jokes about Asian American communities. “I do not consider this particular case to be another example of cancel culture but a legitimate wrong that was done on my part,” said Leno. “MANAA has been very gracious in accepting my apology. I hope that the Asian American community will be able to accept it as well, and I hope I can live up to their expectations in the future.”
