PRODUCTION & DEVELOPMENT
Higher Ground Productions, President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama’s production company in partnership with Netflix, announced the company’s initial slate of upcoming projects, including scripted, unscripted and documentary series, as well as full-length features and documentaries. Among the series are Bloom, an upstairs/downstairs drama set in the post WWII world of fashion; Overlooked, adapted from the New York Times ongoing column of belated obituaries; preschool series Listen to Your Vegetables & Eat Your Parents; and non-fiction Fifth Risk, based on a book by best-selling author Michael Lewis that portrays the unheralded work done by everyday heroes to safeguard the nation. “We love this slate because it spans so many different interests and experiences, yet it’s all woven together with stories that are relevant to our daily lives,” said Michelle Obama. “We think there’s something here for everyone – moms and dads, curious kids, and anyone simply looking for an engaging, uplifting watch at the end of a busy day.”

The new measurement capability will provide impressions, reach and frequency across thousands of audience segments for place-based advertising, including in gyms, bars, amusement parks, stadiums, malls, airports, gas stations, retail environments, cinemas, grocery stores and other venues. “From the onset of its development, the goal of the Insights Suite was to deliver to the OOH industry a trusted, universal currency for all the inventory that comprises the broader marketplace,” said Kym Frank, president of Geopath.

At its NewFront presentation in NYC, Twitter announced a deal with Univision Communications that will deliver more sports, news and entertainment content to its Spanish-language users, including analysis of the 2020 presidential race and soccer highlights. The social media giant also unveiled agreements for content from the Wall Street Journal and Time magazine. New initiatives with previous partners include shows and brand extensions with the NFL, ESPN, Viacom, Major League Soccer, Live Nation, and Activision Blizzard. “Together with our partners, we developed this new slate of programming specifically for our audiences, and designed the content to fuel even more robust conversation on Twitter,” said Kay Madati, Twitter’s Global VP and Head of Content Partnerships.
During its NewFront event at NYC’s Hudson Yards, Conde Nast announced it had 175 pilots and 50 returning shows. Initiatives include a partnership with Twitter that will offer live streams of the company’s conferences, and digital series The Great Pretender from Vanity Fair; Allure’s Seeing Triple; Conde Nast Traveler’s Say I Sent You; and Architectural Digest’s Pop Culture Design Breakdown. “While there’s more content in the market today than ever before, a new scarcity has emerged – a scarcity of great content,” said Pamela Drucker Mann, Chief Revenue and Marketing Officer. “We’re reaching net new audiences you can’t reach on television, or any one platform – we are the new primetime, uniquely positioned to connect our advertisers with one billion consumers around the world.”
vpnMentor researchers uncovered a hack that affected 65% of U.S. households. Information in the unprotected database, hosted by a Microsoft cloud server, included full names, marital status, income bracket, birth dates and locations. After vpnMentor reported its discovery, Microsoft said, “We have notified the owner of the database and are taking appropriate steps to help the customer remove the data until it can be properly secured.”
Streaming video viewing was up 72% in 1Q19 versus a year ago, reports Conviva, with consumption growing fastest on the TV screen (up 74.3%) followed closely by mobile viewership growth (up 72.5%). Virtual MVPDs like Hulu, YouTube and Sling combined for a 108% increase. Not such good news? Up to 47% of ads are failing, according to Conviva, and delivering quality viewing is a challenge on the internet, which wasn’t built for video. “Compelling content will bring viewers to the service but the quality of the viewing experience across the full stream is a vital component to acquire, retain and monetize viewers,” said the report. “The battle for streaming market share is not a zero-sum game, but services will have to deliver on excellent experience in order to command a premium in the increasingly crowded streaming landscape.”
YouTube struck its first live game deal with Major League Baseball, for 13 games live-streamed for free in the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico. The games will be produced for the YouTube platform. “It’s incredible to team up with Major League Baseball for this first-of-its-kind deal together to provide both diehard baseball fans and our YouTube community with live games exclusively on YouTube and YouTube TV,” said Timothy Katz, Head of Sports and News Partnerships, YouTube. “With Major League Baseball’s expanding international fanbase, we are confident YouTube’s global audience will bring fans around the world together in one place to watch the games and teams they love.”
Spanish-language net HITN announced the simultaneous launch in the US and Latin America of Edye, its SVOD service for preschoolers. Edye is now available in Mexico and across Latin America on Claro Video. “This new platform offers the type of entertainment Mexican parents want for their kids: content that promotes formative values and education in a safe space, carefully selected by a professional team who are parents themselves,” said Guillermo Sierra, GM Of Television and Digital Services.
At Facebook’s F8 developer conference, the company announced Messenger news including Messenger Desktop, set to debut later this year, focused on chat, audio and video calls that won’t require resizing browser tabs; Project Lightspeed, a reengineering of the app rolling out later this year that will accommodate users with low-storage phones; and video co-watching, now in the testing phase, allowing users to pick videos to watch at the same time as friend.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg also unveiled a major redesign, which he called “the biggest change to the Facebook app in the last five years.” The new look includes the replacement of Facebook’s blue bar with a clean white design.
With the release of OS X Yosemite later this year, Apple announced it is ceasing development of photo editing app Aperture. Users of the app will be transitioned to Photos, a new app coming next year. “Photos integrates many of the advanced photo editing features that were previously found in Aperture and will replace iPhoto on the new OS X as well,” said the company.
Digital technology partner Ntooitive announced an expansion of its existing connected TV platform through an integration with global advertising technology company The Trade Desk. The partnership offers advertisers and publishers a marketplace of cost-effective premium CTV inventory, real-time performance monitoring, and transparent reporting within Ntooitive’s N2TV platform. “Our partnership with Ntooitive allows even more advertisers to extend traditional TV buys into the digital space,” said Brian Stempeck, chief strategy officer for The Trade Desk. “By building its technology on top of The Trade Desk’s APIs, Ntooitive’s N2TV offering provides a powerful solution for their clients.”
Apple reported that profits in the past quarter dropped due to falling iPhone sales, but results were above Wall Street expectations, with better-than-anticipated results from its new products and services.“Our March quarter results show the continued strength of our installed base of over 1.4 billion active devices, as we set an all-time record for Services, and the strong momentum of our Wearables, Home and Accessories category, which set a new March quarter record,” said Tim Cook, Apple CEO. “We delivered our strongest iPad growth in six years, and we are as excited as ever about our pipeline of innovative hardware, software and services.” Apple shares rose over 5% in after hours trading.
Preschool platform Hopster struck a deal with convergent telecom operator A1 Hrvatska in Croatia, that offers A1 postpaid mobile subscribers who are using A1 internet protection service a free Hopster subscription.
The CBS AMC UK Channels Partnership, a joint venture between AMC Networks International and CBS Studios International, announced that its branded, on-demand players, “Horror Bites” and “CBS Catchup Channels UK”, have launched on YouView, the hybrid television platform, a joint venture between the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5, BT, TalkTalk and Arqiva.
Smithsonian Channel commissioned two new one-hour specials about Brazil’s Pantanal: Jaguarland and Brazil’s Emerald Oasis, focused on the largest contiguous wetland in the world. Both will premiere this year in Brazil and internationally on Smithsonian Channel.
