IN THE NEWS

A settlement was reached Tuesday afternoon in Dominion Voting Systems’ $1.6 billion defamation case against Fox News. The jury had been seated and opening statements were about to begin in the sweltering courtroom when things suddenly came to a stop for over two hours. Then Delaware Superior Court judge Eric M. Davis reappeared and told the court, “The parties have resolved their case.” According to Dominion’s lawyers, the settlement includes a $787.5 million payment from Fox. “The truth matters,” said Dominion lawyer Justin Nelson. “Lies have consequences.”

Said Fox News in a statement, “We acknowledge the court’s rulings finding certain claims about Dominion to be false. This settlement reflects Fox’s continued commitment to the highest journalistic standards. We are hopeful that our decision to resolve this dispute with Dominion amicably, instead of the acrimony of a divisive trial, allows the country to move forward from these issues.” The trial, centered on misinformation during the 2020 election, had been scheduled to begin Monday, then delayed until Tuesday.

This may not be Fox’s last court date – it still faces a lawsuit filed by another election technology company, Smartmatic. “Dominion’s litigation exposed some of the misconduct and damage caused by Fox’s disinformation campaign,” a Smartmatic spokesman said in a statement on Tuesday. “Smartmatic will expose the rest.”

Newsmax, facing its own defamation lawsuits over disproven election fraud claims, was quick to distance itself from the Fox News settlement. “Newsmax believes that the facts at issue in Dominion’s case against it are materially different from those that may have driven Fox to settle, and no conclusion about Newsmax should be drawn from that settlement,” said the company in a statement. “Newsmax stands by its coverage and analysis of the 2020 election and will continue to vigorously defend against the claim.”

NewsNation is expanding to 24 hours, Monday through Friday, beginning Monday, April 24. As part of the move the network will launch new live, four-hour weekday programming block, “NewsNation Now,” airing from 1-5p. “I couldn’t be more proud of what we have accomplished in just a little over two and a half years,” said Sean Compton, President of Nexstar Networks. “NewsNation’s growth has been fueled by exceptional talent with stellar reputations for high-quality journalism, and by viewers hungry for unbiased news reporting.”

Netflix will introduce “paid sharing” in the US in the coming weeks, part of the streamer’s crackdown on the loaning of login credentials. The US debut, during the second quarter (April through June), is part of a “broad rollout” across the world, the company explained in its quarterly letter to shareholders.

How do you celebrate turning 100? If you’re Warner Bros. Studios, you enlist WBD’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion team to create a short film series that reimagines the Studio’s films through a diverse and inclusive lens. Six filmmakers have been selected to develop and shoot 20-minute short film adaptions of the classic Warner Bros. titles A Star is Born, The Adventures of Robin Hood, Calamity Jane, Jack and the Beanstalk, The Prince and the Pauper and Rebel Without a Cause, with representative casting, storytelling and narrative. “We’re absolutely thrilled to work with WBD’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion team to expand opportunities for a broader range of talent to realize their dreams at Warner Bros.,” said Mike De Luca and Pam Abdy, Co-Chairs & CEOs, Warner Bros. Pictures Group. “We can’t think of a better way to celebrate this Studio’s 100-year legacy than investing in the next generation of great storytellers.”

NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises celebrated five years of growth and expansion of its multimedia career mentorship and student development program, Telemundo Academy, on Tuesday. To mark the occasion, the company announced a new partnership with the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities, an international organization representing more than 500 colleges and universities in the US, Puerto Rico, Latin America and Spain committed to Hispanic higher education success.

Casting Note: Candace Cameron Bure will star in Great American Family holiday movie, “My Christmas Hero.”

UPFRONTS UPDATE

AMC Networks’ Head of Programming, Dan McDermott, announced the development of a potential third series in the expanding Anne Rice Immortal Universe. Oscar-nominated John Lee Hancock (“The Blind Side”) is attached as showrunner and writer. The series is set in the world of the Talamasca, a secret organization featured in a number of Rice’s novels that is devoted to studying the supernatural world and keeping mortals safe from its darkest elements.

Also on the docket are two new WE tv series, including an expansion of the “Growing Up Hip Hop” franchise with “Toya & Reginae.” The program features the ex-wife and daughter of hip hop legend Lil Wayne, Toya Johnson-Rushing and Reginae Carter, both of whom appeared on “Growing Up Hip Hop.” In addition, “Bev Is Boss” will be based on the life of Deb Antney. The music managing mogul rose to fame for breaking the careers of Gucci Mane, French Montana and Nicki Minaj.

A new Horowitz Survey reports that Black households over index for using free OTT services compared to the total market, pointing to opportunities for culturally relevant content.

TECH TALK

Netflix is shutting down its DVD-by-mail business. “After an incredible 25-year run, we’ve decided to wind down DVD.com later this year,” co-CEO Ted Sarandos wrote in a blog post on the company’s site. “Our goal has always been to provide the best service to our members, but as the business continues to shrink, that’s going to become increasingly difficult. So we want to go out on a high, and will be shipping our final discs on September 29, 2023.”

Amazon Prime has launched Dialogue Boost. The new feature allows users to increase volume of dialogue in select original series and films. The option, originally conceived to support customers who are hard of hearing, will quiet down background music and other effects.

SPORTS ROUNDUP

FloSports struck a multi-year partnership with Wrestling Canada Lutte to be the official streaming partner of its national events. The agreement runs through 2027 and will see FloSports broadcast both Canadian Wrestling Championships, Canadian U23 Wrestling Championships & World Team Trials, and the Canadian Team Trials in 2023 and 2027. In addition to live streaming FloSports will also produce exclusive content at national events with Canadian wrestlers, giving fans more access to athletes.
