IN THE NEWS

Fox Corporation has formed the Tubi Media Group, housing FOX’s standalone digital businesses including Tubi, Credible and Blockchain Creative Labs, as well as the digital platforms and teams that underpin FOX’s wider digital business in Sports, News and Entertainment. Paul Cheesbrough, previously CTO and President of Digital for Fox Corp., will head the division as CEO; Tubi founder and CEO Farhad Massoudi will step down in June. “Our strategic acquisition of Tubi in 2020 established a cornerstone in our digital streaming strategy, which under Paul and Farhad’s leadership has driven record growth and is now the clear market leader in AVOD in the US,” said Lachlan Murdoch, Executive Chair and Chief Executive Officer, Fox Corporation. “Building off this momentum, and complementing the strong growth being driven in our company wide digital revenues, now is the right time to bring these efforts together into a new business unit which will be tasked with spearheading our digital expansion and partnering with our brands to drive continued growth.”

Paramount Global and Salesforce announced the launch of Paramount’s new diversity reporting platform, aiming at giving the company a more holistic view of the makeup of its production workforce. “To produce the best content for a diverse global audience, it’s imperative that the teams both in front of and behind the camera and those who are creating content, reflect our audiences,” said Bob Bakish, President and CEO, Paramount Global. “We often say, ‘what gets measured gets done,’ and this data will help us create a baseline for diversity targets, continue to improve representation, make informed long-term diversity, equity, and inclusion commitments in a measurable way, and hold ourselves accountable.”

Nominations for the 50th annual Daytime Emmys are out, and ABC’s “General Hospital” leads the field with 19 nods. CBS sister soaps “The Bold and the Beautiful” and “The Young and the Restless” were second and third, with 14 and 13 nominations, respectively, followed by NBC/Peacock’s “Days of Our Lives” and syndicated “The Kelly Clarkson Show,” both with 11. The awards ceremony airs Friday, June 16 at 9p on CBS.

Thirty-eight out of the 1,462 shows that aired during primetime television and streaming in 2022 had a Latino actor in the lead role, according to the Latino Donor Collaborative’s 2022 Latinos in Media Report. That, despite that fact that according to Nielsen, 42% of the most binge-able streaming programs of 2021 were directly influenced by Latino talent, with more than half of these shows’ audiences coming from outside the Latino demographic. “The U.S. Latino representation data for the last quarter of 2022 is truly shocking. The numbers actually went backward from the first three quarters and to 2019 levels,” said Ana Valdez, President and CEO of the LDC. “The bottom line is that U.S. Latinos continue to be invisible in the general market of TV and film.”

Prime Video has acquired new DC animated projects including the family action comedy film “Merry Little Batman” along with spinoff series “Bat-Family,” and a two-season order for “Batman: Caped Crusader.” “’Batman: The Animated Series’ helped pioneer in the evolution of superhero storytelling and defined the Dark Knight for a generation,” said Vernon Sanders, Head of Television, Amazon and MGM Studios. “’Batman: Caped Crusader’ will no doubt continue that tradition and, alongside ‘Merry Little Batman’ and ‘Bat-Family,’ we’re thrilled to collaborate with Warner Bros. Animation to offer a variety of takes of the Batman mythos to our global Prime Video customers.”

PRODUCTION & DEVELOPMENT

Japan’s Toho Co. has launched TOHO Tombo Pictures, a subsidiary providing domestic production services for foreign productions. TOHO Tombo Pictures is a joint venture with Japan-based producer Georgina Pope. “In recent years we have seen an increase in foreign productions developing stories to shoot in Japan, and feel our industry needs to fully prepare and be ready to offer top notch production services,” said Hiro Matsuoka, Representative Director and President of Toho. “By establishing a firm dedicated to the needs of international producers and directors we will assemble a workforce ready to support overseas creators while contributing to the Japanese film industry and in turn the tourism industry.”

Taye Diggs (“All American”) will star in BET+ crime series “Love & Murder: Atlanta Playboy,” based on Ron Stodghill’s book Redbone: Money, Malice and Murder in Atlanta. The series comes from Mona Scott-Young of Monami Productions and Eric Tomosunas of Swirl Films. “The film series is a captivating true life crime story that captures the unique culture of Atlanta,” said Scott-Young. “BET has always provided a platform for stories that are authentic and relatable and we are proud to be partnered with them on this project.”

STREAMING

Netflix will have spent close to $6 billion on UK content over four years by the end of 2023, shared the streamer at a London Showcase. That’s nearly 50% more than originally anticipated, revealed Anne Mensah, Netflix’s VP, Content for the UK.

Future Today announced its official membership in the Interactive Advertising Bureau. “We are thrilled to join the IAB and participate in this year’s NewFronts event,” said Vikrant Mathur, co-founder of Future Today. “As a member of this esteemed organization, we look forward to collaborating with other industry leaders to drive innovation and growth in the digital advertising space.”

UP Entertainment announced that UP Faith & Family is now available on Verizon’s +play. UP Faith & Family offers exclusive access to original productions from the UP Entertainment family of brands.

SPORTS ROUNDUP

Prime Video Sports has renewed docuseries “Coach Prime” for a second season. The upcoming season, which is currently in production, will follow Coach Prime throughout his inaugural season at the University of Colorado with the Colorado Buffaloes and, like Season 1, takes viewers inside the locker room and on the field during games and practices throughout the 2023 season. “The customer reception of Season 1 of ‘Coach Prime’ far exceeded expectations. Our customers loved getting an inside look as Deion Sanders established a culture of teamwork, belief, and winning at JSU,” said Matt Newman, Head of Prime Video Original Sports Content. “Deion has brought that same leadership to Colorado and has had an instant impact on recruiting and expectations.”

GolfPass, NBC Sports Next’s digital membership and video streaming platform co-founded by Rory McIlroy, is offering a new ad-supported membership tier with free access to thousands of hours of golf instruction series, original entertainment, GOLF Channel classics, and golf tournament replays.

CNBC and Boardroom, Kevin Durant and Rich Kleiman’s media brand covering the business of sports, music and entertainment, are teaming up to produce Game Plan, an event taking place on July 25 in LA. The invite-only event will host leaders from across the sports business landscape. “Recent sports industry trends are drastically changing the way the game is played, creating a broad spectrum of new investing opportunities,” said Nick Dunn, Managing Director and Executive Editor of CNBC Events. “By combining CNBC’s unparalleled business and financial news and information platform with the dynamic and innovative team at Boardroom, Game Plan will raise the bar for sports business events, bringing together the top names in sports for purposeful and powerful discussions, providing the audience with information they can use to step up their game and get in on the action.”

TECH TALK

Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment sales platform Crackle Connex has turned to Geopath for OOH data on audience targeting, audience measurement, and return on ad spend for more than 2,700 video screens on top of Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment’s Redbox kiosks. “Geopath has built the most comprehensive platform for out-of-home audience measurement, which will be a massive asset for our brand partners’ campaigns on our Redbox kiosk video screens,” said Philippe Guelton, chief revenue officer of Crackle Connex. “With a greater understanding of the target audience, we can help ensure the success of these campaigns.”

Gen Z find that the traditional shopping journey is almost twice as complicated as social shopping, according to new research form IPG Mediabrands’ MAGNA/Media Trials, Reprise Commerce and Snapchat. “What Does the Future of Social Commerce Entail?” found that social-commerce tech, like AR lenses, discovery tabs and virtual shopping groups, can enhance the consumer experience. “What advertisers need to know is that online shopping is already deeply rooted in social media. Most social media users are already using it as a way to discovery new products and close to half have made purchases directly on social media platforms,” said Kara Manatt, EVP, Intelligence Solutions, MAGNA. “Advertisers should take advantage of social media tools to reach consumers where they are and consider leveraging social commerce technology like discovery tabs and virtual shopping groups.”

DISTRIBUTION

Ovation TV has signed a deal with BBC Studios for non-exclusive linear rights for two detective series. “’Death in Paradise’ and ‘Shakespeare & Hathaway: Private Investigators’ are excellent titles that will complement our other mystery programming like Murdoch Mysteries and Midsomer Murders perfectly,” said Scott Woodward, EVP Programming and Production, Ovation.

FilmRise has acquired all North American distribution rights to the film “Scheme Queens,” about four girlfriends who find themselves down on their luck and devise a plan to change their futures.

Attraction inked a deal with Banijay for the international distribution of “Love is a Highway” (Coeur de trucker), a dating reality format that follows single truckers on a road trip to find love. The show, commissioned by Canada’s TV5-UNIS TV, combines romance, travel and adventure.

UK-based distributor DCD Rights announces sales of 230 hours of factual programming across Europe, including M6 France signing a 48-hour VOD package deal for a selection of cookery titles as well as “21st Century Serial Killer” and “Haunted Encounters.” RMC Découverte (France) will take “Aussie Gold Hunters” and “Aussie Gold Hunters: Mine SOS.”

GoQuest Media has acquired two crime dramas from Poland: “Erinyes” and “Crusade,” produced by Telewizja Polska.

The numbers keep going up for HBO’s “Succession” as it approaches its series finale. Season four episodes are averaging 7.9 million viewers across platforms, up from 7.2 million for season three. Sunday’s viewing of episode five matched the series high 2.6 million of the week prior.

Monday’s edition of “Fox News Tonight,” its first after the exit of Tucker Carlson, delivered 2.6 million viewers, less than Carlson’s average of 3.3 million but enough to land the top spot in cable news ratings.
