IN THE NEWS

Allen Media Group isn’t lovin’ it. AMG divisions Entertainment Studios Networks and Weather Group have filed a lawsuit against McDonald’s, accusing the burger behemoth of failing to honor a commitment to spend 2% of its advertising budget on Black-Owned Media in 2021, escalating to 5 percent by 2024. Per the lawsuit, McDonald’s did not spend anywhere close to 2 percent on Black-Owned Media in 2021, and it is not on pace to meeting its commitment now. “This is a groundbreaking lawsuit based on a California law—Civil Code 1711—that holds corporations to their public promises and thereby redresses corporate fraud. That’s exactly this case,” said Skip Miller, counsel for Allen Media Group. “Per the lawsuit, McDonald’s said one thing and did another.” AMG is seeking damages in excess of $100 million, along with punitive damages and a permanent injunction requiring McDonald’s to honor its commitment and spend at least 5 percent of its ad budget on Black-Owned Media with full transparency going forward.

“McDonald’s has a long history of investment in diverse communities and partners, and we are proud of our record. We will not be coerced by these in terrorem tactics and will defend ourselves vigorously,” responded McDonald’s in a statement. Allen Media Group filed a $10 billion racial discrimination suit against McDonald’s for $10 billion in 2021, in a case working its way through the courts.

PRODUCTION & DEVELOPMENT

Production has shut down on more series as the writers’ strike heads into week two. “We hate to strike, but if we must, we strike hard,” tweeted Jon Hurwitz, co-creator of Netflx’s “Cobra Kai.” George R.R. Martin, announcing that “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms: The Hedge Night” has closed for the duration, was also among those supporting the walkout. “No one wanted this — no writer with an ounce of sense, anyway — but the producers and the studios and the networks and the streamers gave us no choice,” he said in a blog post.

The CW has acquired Canadian comedy “Son of a Critch,” based on Mark Critch’s memoir about growing up in the ‘80s.
