PRODUCTION & DEVELOPMENT

National Geographic Documentary Films has a new feature project from director Ron Howard, producer Brian Grazer and Imagine Documentaries. The upcoming documentary will chronicle chef and humanitarian José Andrés and his nonprofit, World Central Kitchen, as they rebuild nations in the wake of disaster. Joining Grazer and Howard as producers is Imagine Documentaries’ Sara Bernstein, and Justin Wilkes. The film will be executive produced by Imagine Entertainment’s Michael Rosenberg and Louisa Velis, World Central Kitchen’s Nate Mook and Richard Wolffe, and National Geographic Documentary Films’ Carolyn Bernstein and Ryan Harrington.

HGTV greenlit DIY series Design At Your Door, for homeowners with tired interiors willing to be coached remotely. After an initial virtual consultation with an HGTV expert, homeowners will receive a surprise package of personalized design elements – then have to get to work themselves, recording their own progress. Production begins later this month. “We’re all looking for ways to stay happy and connected, and a series like this feels right, right now,” said Jane Latman, President, HGTV.

Like most of the US, major sports fans are watching more media during the COVID-19 pandemic, reports Nielsen, but because their consumption was so great before sports were shut down, the increase isn’t as acute as the rest of the population. For example, from Sunday, March 8 through Sunday, March 29, Heavy Sports Viewers increased their viewing by 10%, while adults increased their viewing by 23%. And sports programming still accounts for 10% of their time on Sundays, even in the absence of live sports.

HBO Max ordered three series from Bad Robot Productions: Overlook, inspired by Stephen King’s The Shining; Duster, centered on a getaway driver for a crime syndicate; and a DC Justice League Dark show. All fall under the deal J.J. Abrams inked with WarnerMedia last fall.

POV grabbed US broadcast and streaming rights for And She Could Be Next, a two-part documentary series directed by Grace Lee (American Revolutionary: The Evolution of Grace Lee Boggs) and Iranian documentary filmmaker Marjan Safinia (Seeds) about women of color who are transforming American politics. It’s the first miniseries to be co-produced by POV, and will air as a two-night special presentation this June on PBS as part of its summer “Trailblazers” initiative. “If ever there was a moment where we need to be reminded of the leadership of women of color, that time is now,” said Ava DuVernay, one of the film’s executive producers. “If you’re an immigrant, a young person, a person of faith, or simply someone who has felt unseen for too long, you will find yourself reflected in this story.”

Quibi ordered adult animated comedy Doomlands (wt), from Josh O’Keefe, Josh Bowen (Gary and His Demons) and Look Mom! Productions. Series takes place in a subterranean pub.

NEWS ABOUT NEWS

Facebook is launching a new feature called “Get the Facts,” with articles that debunk misinformation about the coronavirus. Messages will appear in News Feed to people who previously engaged with harmful misinformation related to COVID-19, connecting them with accurate data. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg noted in a Thursday post that the tech giant is continuing efforts to reduce misinformation, including working with over 60 fact-checking organizations that review content in over 50 languages.

Cable news is continuing to hold onto its strong gains in viewership relative to network news as the COVID-19 crisis wears on, despite a slight dip over the past two weeks, according to data from Alphonso. “In particular, we are seeing impressive recent growth by CNN and MSNBC since about mid-March. Fox News Channel is holding on to its sizable audience, but their competitors are clearly benefitting from the demand for information,” Raghu Kodige, Chief Product Officer at Alphonso, tells Cynopsis. “Not surprisingly, this is driving revenue increases for the Cable News segment as a whole, with a combined estimated $200 million increase in ad revenue across all three cable news networks in March, compared to January.”

Overall, 40% of Americans consider at least one of the broadcast networks to be one of the top three trustworthy sources of information about the coronavirus; 30% consider a center-to-left cable news network (CNN, MSNBC, and BBC) one of the top three trustworthy sources; and 21% of Americans feel Fox News is one of the top three trustworthy media channels, according to a study from Horowitz Research. While 71% of Fox News viewers have a positive perception of how the federal government is handling the crisis, only 39% of those who trust other news sources feel positively. But when it comes to local government handling of the pandemic, both those who trust Fox News and those who trust other TV news sources are equally likely to feel positively.
