IN THE NEWS

ABC renewed “Not Dead Yet” for season two, and “The Conners” for season six. But with the WGA strike still raging, only unscripted content is on the network’s fall schedule right now, with the exception of “Abbott Elementary” reruns. Returning unscripted series include “America’s Funniest Home Videos” for season 34; “American Idol” for its seventh run on the network; “The Bachelor” for season 28; “Bachelor in Paradise” for season nine; “Celebrity Wheel of Fortune” for season four; “Celebrity Jeopardy!” for season two; and “Shark Tank” for season 15. Decisions on “Home Economics” and “The Rookie: Feds” will be made at “a later date.”

Adding a new twist to its “Bachelor” franchise, ABC is adding “The Golden Bachelor” to its Monday slate. The spin-off, centered on a man given a second chance at love in his senior years, will air after “Dancing With the Stars.”

The Peabody Awards in-person ceremony has been canceled because of the writers’ strike. “Due to the ongoing uncertainty and meaningful challenges that exist industrywide, we have decided to cancel the 83rd annual Peabody Awards ceremony,” announced the organization. “Canceling the ceremony is extremely disappointing as this year’s 39 winners are immensely talented and have brought forth powerful stories that deserve to be celebrated.” The ceremony was to have taken place, in LA for the first time, on June 11.

The strike has also impacted the 50th Daytime Emmy Awards, slated to air June 16 on CBS, and the Creative Arts & Lifestyle ceremony, set for June 17. Both events have been postponed until a strike resolution has been reached.

If the writers’ strike continues for “weeks or months,” said the WGA negotiating committee in an email to members, it would cost studios more than if they met the guild’s demands. “These companies have made billions in profit off writers’ work, and they tell their investors every quarter about the importance of scripted content,” stated the committee. “Yet they are risking significant continued disruption in the coming weeks and months that would far outweigh the costs of settling.”

Dominion Voting Systems denied reports that its $787.5 million settlement with Fox News included a verbal agreement that the network would cut ties with Tucker Carlson. “Dominion wanted to punish Fox, and it’s working,” a source told Variety. But Dominion said in a statement, “As the Fox principals who negotiated the settlement well know, Dominion made no demands about Tucker Carlson’s employment orally or in writing. Any claims otherwise are categorically false and a thinly veiled effort to further damage Dominion. Fox should take every effort to stop these lies immediately.” Fox also denies the report.

Walt Disney Co. former CEO Bob Chapek, former Chairman of Disney Media & Entertainment Distribution Kareem Daniel, and current CFO Christine McCarthy are being accused of providing misleading statements and omissions about Disney+ and its subscriber growth. A lawsuit filed by Local 272 Labor Management Pension Fund alleges the executives did not truthfully disclose subscriber numbers and the company’s overall streaming health. “We are aware of the complaint and intend to defend vigorously against it in court,” responded Disney.

M/A/R/C Research has acquired insights provider Horowitz Research. “I am very excited about the acquisition of Horowitz Research,” said M/A/R/C CEO Merrill Dubrow. “I’ve enjoyed getting to learn more about the company and its team during this process. Their syndicated experience and client offerings are a perfect complement to M/A/R/C’s business.”
