It’s a done deal. Charter Communications has completed its acquisitions of Time Warner Cable and Bright House Networks. The second biggest U.S. cable provider, which will go by the name Charter, serving over 25 million pay-TV and broadband customers across 41 states. Current Charter CEO Tom Rutledge will lead the company as President, CEO and Chairman of the Board. “Current Bright House Networks and Time Warner Cable customers won’t see many changes right away, though in the coming months they will begin to hear more from us about the Spectrum brand, and the product improvements and consumer friendly policies that come with it,” said Rutledge. “We intend to continually improve the way we do business in order to be the very best at what we do."

House of CardsRobin Wright says she threatened to go public if she didn’t receive equal pay to co-star Kevin Spacey for her work on the Netflix series. “It was the perfect paradigm,” said Wright, addressing the Rockefeller Foundation on Tuesday. “There are very few films or TV shows where the male, the patriarch, and the matriarch are equal. And they are in House of Cards.” Result: equal pay.

Bring on the slime! Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is set to host Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Sports 2016 awards for the second consecutive year. Wilson announced the news on his Instagram page on Wednesday. Ceremony airs Sunday, July 17 at 8p.

Film-to-TV reboot Limitless is most likely done at CBS. CBS entertainment president Glenn Geller told reporters the series was being shopped elsewhere, stopping short of  confirming it had officially been canceled. “Right now, we’re in discussions with other potential buyers, so I’d rather not comment on that at the moment,” he said. The network is sticking with medical drama Code Black, though, despite soft ratings. Credit goes to showrunner Michael Seitzman – Geller said the network was impressed by his plan for season two.

What happens when we reveal our secrets?

Groundbreaking, self-shot documentary series Secret Lives of Americans explores this question through the eyes of 20 courageous Americans.

See what happens when these individuals tell their deeply held secrets to families, friends, and viewers for the very first time.

All-New Season
Tomorrow – 10 p.m. ET/PT
Only on Pivot, the television network from Participant Media


Telemundo’s deal with Jenni Rivera Enterprises to produce series and specials inspired by the late music artist, featuring an authorized bio-musical television series based on her life story, also includes multiple tribute concerts starting in 2017, and a series of “Jenni Vive” annual specials associated with Jenni’s Love Foundation.


CBS Corp. president and CEO Leslie Moonves’ opening remarks at the network’s annual pre-upfront press breakfast on Wednesday took aim at claims that CBS’ ratings win this season rest on the fact that it aired the Super Bowl. “Yes, the Super Bowl helped. But let me tell you a fact. Without the Super Bowl, we still win. That’s a fact, ladies and gentlemen. Look it up,” asserted Moonves, adding that CBS has been “America’s most watched network for 13 of the past 14 years, including the last eight. We will win this season.” At the net’s Upfront event later at Carnegie Hall, Moonves said, “Everyone is now coming to the same conclusion we came to a long time ago. Broadcast television remains the single best and most effective medium for advertising.”

Look for double the laughs on CBS next season, as the network moves from four to eight comedies across Monday and Thursday nights. “We have a great history with comedy. We’re glad to have more comedy back on,” announced SEVP Kelly Kahl. While acknowledging that the jump “is a little unconventional,” he added that the increase makes the schedule “more sales friendly and a little younger.” Along with the returning The Big Bang Theory, comes Man With A Plan and Kevin Can Wait.

On the drama front, CBS presents Bull, starring NCIS vet Michael Weatherly, a MacGyver reboot and Doubt, starring Katherine Heigl.

Supergirl is moving from CBS to The CW for its sophomore season. “The ratings did start a little higher, and they came down a bit,” said CBS entertainment president Glenn Geller, noting that the show “found the right home. It’s a win-win for us. We co-own The CW and we made a great deal with Warner Bros.”

CBS unveiled the logo for the new Star Trek within the television series’ first-ever promotional video. The program is the first original series developed for streaming service CBS All Access. The second is a Good Wife spin-off starring Christine Baranski; the drama got a straight-to-series order. Good Wife’s Cush Lumbo (Lucca) is also onboard. Speaking digitally, while CBS will be part of new bundles, said Moonves, $5.99/month All Access will be the only place viewers will find a live stream of the network, a full stack of every current CBS show and thousands of hours of CBS library programming.

At National CineMedia’s Upfront event at the AMC Lincoln Square movie theater in NYC, the focus was on millennials, content and data. New CEO Andy England noted that with 358 million movie tickets sold to millennials last year, “We have more millennials visiting our theaters in one year than there are people in the United States, nearly 36 million more….Opening weekend for movies are, by definition, culturally relevant. Millennials want to see films as they are released because it puts them in the know.”

According to research released at the event, millennials are 50 percent more likely than the general public to say that movies are a passion of theirs; more likely to be influenced by social media; 46 percent aim to see a film on opening weekend and 86 percent arrive to the theater early.

While last year set records, “2016 is off to a blistering start,” said Paul Dergarbedian, senior media analyst for comScore, adding that the growth “is not an anomaly, it’s a long-term trend. And this trend is going to continue since going out to the movies remains a singular, viable and integral part today’s entertainment diet while at the same time serves the very human desire to enjoy the communal and immersive experience of the movie theater itself.”
Then there’s data. New cinema advertising tools include the rollout of NCM’s Cinema Audience Targeting Optimizer, allowing NCM to more effectively target a brand’s key audience by matching it to the movie titles that best deliver that audience, and the Data Management Platform, powered by Nielsen’s Marketing Cloud, which will house thousands of first-, second- and third-party consumer data sets, and allow for transaction-based insights, better targeted campaigns, and closed-loop ROI. And the Cinema Accelerator will re-engage moviegoers with brand messages on their mobile devices as they are consuming content.
The pitch, NCM President Cliff Marks tells Cynopsis, is personal: “Aside from all of us being in the ad business, we are all moviegoers too,” he says. “The movies are where we go to escape and see compelling stories told on the biggest and most engaging screen in the world. They touch us both emotionally as consumers, and intellectually as advertisers looking to reach movie audiences like us. Everybody likes to call their content ‘Premium Video,’ but all premium content is not created equal! There is no other network out there with the kind of world-class, first-run entertainment content and level of immersive engagement that our NCM network of movie theaters has to offer.”

A mix of premium content and innovation was the recipe served to advertisers at Turner’s Upfront presentation at NYC’s Theater and Madison Square Garden on Wednesday. “When it comes to leading the transformation of this industry, engaging audiences across all platforms and reinvesting for success, Turner is delivering on all fronts,” said Turner president David Levy.

Among the announcements from the company whose portfolio includes TBS, TNT, Adult Swim, Cartoon Network, Boomerang, Great Big Story, HLN, CNN, truTV, Bleacher Report and Turner Sports:

TNT ordered new drama series Will, centered on a young William Shakespeare, and Civil, about a second civil war in the U.S. CNN greenlit Soundtrack: Songs That Made History (wt), The History of Comedy and The Nineties.

Adult Swim ordered a pilot from Rob Corddry (Children’s Hospital), while truTV is adding Jon Glaser Loves Gear, Greatest Ever and Lifescaping (working titles). TBS is launching scripted comedy Wrecked on Tuesday, June 14; mystery comedy Search Party and alien comedy People of Earth arrive later this year. Of TBS-renewed comedies Angie Tribeca and Detour, which will both air two 10-episode seasons in 2016, TNT and TBS president Kevin Reilly explained they “continue to screw around” with the traditional TV model.

Donna Speciale, president of Turner ad sales, noted the company is delivering on the promise made at last year’s Upfront event. “I stood in front of you and stated that Turner would help lead the transformation of our industry,” said Speciale. “Our vision has not changed. We are doing it. We have transformed to be a data-driven content creation and distribution company that puts the consumer first.” Other networks may be scrambling now to adapt to the new media landscape with moves like reducing ad load, but “we’ve had a vision and it’s been a straight path,” Speciale told Cynopsis. “We knew where we were heading.”

On the digital front, networks will be available to subscribers on Apple TV, Amazon Fire, Roku and Google Chromecast; that rollout starts in June. And Team Coco Digital Studios will collaborate with brands to deliver social-first content.

The Upfront opened with Anderson Cooper moderating a debate between Conan O’Brien and Charles Barkley about the future of television (“I love standing next to Anderson because it’s the only time in my life I feel ethnic,” said O’Brien), but it was Billy Eichner’s (Billy on the Street) take on the subject that drew the biggest laugh. TV is not dead, shouted Eichner  “It has about three years to live.” “You never know what you’re going to get with Billy Eichner,” laughed Speciale after the show, “but that’s what makes it fun.”

What’s been the hottest topic at Upfronts this season? Let us know in the new Cynopsis poll: http://cynopiss.com/poll/
