Next are Hulu, Roku, and TikTok with 39%, 31% and 31%, respectively.

Erik Barmack will also serve as an executive producer. The pilot begins filming this summer.

Also landing a pilot order, in this case from Fox, is dating competition “Masquerade Ball,” from ZnakTV and Fox Alternative Entertainment. In the show, singles try to make an impression during just a few minutes on the dance floor.

Netflix gave an eight-episode order to “Florida Man,” starring Edgar Ramirez (“Yes Day”) as a struggling ex-cop. The drama comes from Donald Todd and Jason Bateman and Michael Costigan’s Aggregate Films.

“Power” Director Rob Hardy struck a first-look deal with Lionsgate and “Power” creator Courtney Kemp’s End of Episodes Productions. “Rob is an incredibly talented director and an absolute pleasure to work with. His keen artistic vision and expertise helped bring some of the most riveting episodes and performances to the ‘Power’ Universe,” said Lionsgate Television Group Chairman Kevin Beggs.

One of the Olympics-themed programs headed to Peacock ahead of the Tokyo Summer Games is docu-series “Golden,” from LeBron James and Maverick Carter’s Uninterrupted. The six-episode series follows six hopefuls competing for four spots on the women’s gymnastics team.

Synchronicity Films (“The Cry”) has optioned the rights to Graeme Armstrong’s debut novel, The Young Team, to develop as a scripted series. Adrian McDowall (“The Last Czars”) will direct the adaptation, with British writer Ben Tagoe on board as screenwriter. Graeme Armstrong will act as consultant on the project.

Action star Don Lee and producing partner Chris Lee are developing “The Club” with Starlings Television. The drama series is based on Korean format “The Trap,” about a detective swept up in a twisted mystery.

A&E series “Hustle & Tow,” premiering, tonight, April 20, is about more than the tricky work of tow truck operators. “While scouting shops for ‘Hustle & Tow,’ it was striking to us how the cast and locations that truly popped also naturally reflected the way the country really looks; while we’re of course documenting the high-octane dangers of tow truck operators’ daily work, the real electricity comes from the show’s incredible diversity,” executive producer Benjamin Nurick, President of Bodega Pictures, tells Cynopsis. “There’s no better home for this series than A&E, and we’re hopeful it will mark the beginning of a long and successful creative partnership.”

TECH TALK

Ad fraud rates are improving, but brand risk is rising globally, according to Integral Ad Science’s H2 2020 Media Quality Report.As consumers continued to focus on digital media during stay-at-home orders, viewability rates showed mixed results. CTV viewability reached 93.3% globally, while mobile app video followed closely at 92.6%. Mobile web video viewability followed at 73.7%. IAS data also indicated that adult content was the primary driver of increased brand risk across all formats globally, generally followed by hate speech. The US registered one of the largest increases in brand risk for desktop video content, up 2.9 percentage points, when compared to H2 2019, while Canada was the only market to witness a decrease in brand risk.

Innovid announced the launch of Programmatic Interactive Connected TV, a solution to scale the delivery of engaging CTV ad experiences through programmatic buying. Interactive CTV ad formats incorporate advanced features and functionality to boost creative performance. The consortium was created to organize buy-side and sell-side programmatic platforms, connecting the ad tech ecosystem and delivering against the promise of interactive CTV creative at scale. “The lack of standardization across CTV has historically forced advertisers to choose between the targetability and efficiency that programmatic buying offers, versus the ROI boosting engagement interactive CTV provides,” said Zvika Netter, CEO and co-founder at Innovid. “As the only omni-channel platform with the infrastructure required to support interactive creative on TV, we knew Innovid had to lead the way by connecting the largest independent CTV players in the market through a single, integrated marketplace.”

Kantar has launched a new tool that uses data visualization of SVOD market share, broken down by region. The tool is based on Kantar’s Entertainment on Demand service, which tracks the digital subscription customer journey across music and video. The data is based on a quarterly survey which provides insight into digital subscriptions from purchase triggers, through consideration, evaluation, intention to purchase, post-purchase usage, satisfaction/ dissatisfaction, advocacy, loyalty and switching.

AcuityAds, the technology company that enables advertisers to connect intelligently with audiences across digital advertising campaigns from a single platform, announced an integration with Amazon Publisher Services. Through the integration with APS’s Transparent Ad Marketplace, advertisers that leverage AcuityAds’ technology, including the advertising automation platform, illumin, will gain direct access to high quality inventory including premium publishers from a variety of verticals on desktop, mobile web and mobile apps. “We are already seeing significant transactions take place as a result of this integration with Amazon Publisher Services,” said Tal Hayek, CEO and Co-Founder of AcuityAds. “As a buy-side advertising platform integrating with APS’s Transparent Ad Marketplace, we look forward to bringing the hundreds of advertisers that leverage our platform access to direct, premium, transparent and scalable advertising opportunities.”

Apple is lifting the suspension of conservative social media app Parler on the iPhone App Store, after the company agreed to make updates to the app and its content moderation policies. Participants in the January 6 attack on the Capitol had been in communication on Parler, prompting the pause.

STREAMING

Free streaming ad-supported service Local News, featuring local news and premium content, is now available on most major platforms. “After more than three years in development and a significant investment in the platform, Local Now is extremely unique as it uses proprietary software and artificial intelligence to produce, aggregate, curate, and stream – in real time – local news, weather, sports, traffic, movies, TV shows, documentaries, and channels geo-fenced to the user’s zip code,” said Byron Allen, Founder, Chairman, and CEO of Local Now parent company Allen Media Group. “We are well-positioned as the new global standard for free streaming.”

Cord-cutting has become a universal American phenomenon, but the type of content available on streaming services often fails to reflect the diversity of its audience, with a dearth of options available for Americans looking to access relevant content in a language that is not English, maintains Isabel Rafferty, CEO and founder of Canela Media. Rafferty offers insights about can be done to remedy that, in Cynsiders.

The EstrellaTV and Estrella News networks are now available 24/7 on VIZIO SmartCast TVs. SmartCast users will also have access to Estrella News, a group of local and national news professionals providing live news to Spanish-language audiences on a 24/7 multiplatform basis.
