IN THE NEWS

HBO and HBO Max topped the Emmy nomination scoreboard yesterday morning, with a combined 140. That’s up from 130 last year, and enough to handily beat Netflix’s 105. Hulu landed a best-ever 58 nominations, more than doubling its previous record of 27. The series with the most nods was HBO’s “Succession” (25); HBO’s “White Lotus” and Apple TV+’s “Ted Lasso” each brought home 20. “Squid Game” made history as the first non-English language show to make the cut in the Outstanding Drama Series Category, while 25-year-old Zendaya is the youngest producer to be nominated, for “Euphoria.” For a complete list of nominees, go here.

Netflix has begun talks with studios about amending its programming deals to allow for an AVOD tier, reports The Wall Street Journal. The streamer will need to negotiate agreements for both its own shows and acquired content. “We are still in the early days of deciding how to launch a lower-priced, ad-supported option, and no decisions have been made,” a Netflix spokesperson told the WSJ.

Apple TV+ handed a season two order for “Loot,” starring Maya Rudolph. The renewal comes on the heels of the announcement of a new multi-year, first-look deal with Animal Pictures, the production company run by “Loot” executive producers Rudolph, Natasha Lyonne and Danielle Renfrew Behrens.

Spotify has acquired Heardle, the music version of addictive word game Wordle. As The New York Times did when it bought Wordle in January, Spotify is keeping the game free to play. “We are always looking for innovative and playful ways to enhance music discovery and help artists reach new fans,” said Jeremy Erlich, Global Head of Music, Spotify. “Heardle has proven to be a really fun way to connect millions of fans with songs they know and love and with new songs…. Since its debut, the game has quickly built a loyal following, and it aligns with our plans to deepen interactivity across the Spotify ecosystem.”

YouTube TV has surpassed five million subscribers (including free trials). “Five years ago we launched YouTube TV to rethink how we watch live TV, give users more choice, and unlock a new revenue stream for our partners,” said Neal Mohan, Chief Product Officer at YouTube. “This milestone is a testament to the amazing work the team has done.” According to a blog post, the top five most DVR’d shows are “Yellowstone,” “SNL,” “This Is Us,” “60 Minutes,” and “Grey’s Anatomy.”

Marketers need step up their game when it comes to integrating the tools necessary to manage the new speed and velocity of data marketing, particularly AI, according to a new study by the CMO Council and GfK. Many marketers “need to get better at extracting relevant data signals across channels, generating actionable insights, making insights available in real-time, and going deeper and more granular with customer insights,” said the council’s Executive Director Donovan Neale-May says in a statement released with the report, “The High-Velocity Data Marketer.” The number one area respondents said they are seeking to improve over the next year is “real-time availability of insights.”

Local motion: KCAL 9, the CBS-owned independent station in LA, is launching a local morning news franchise that will air from 4:00–11:00a on weekdays, beginning this fall. Sister station CBS 2, the West Coast Flagship of the CBS Television Network, will air live broadcasts of “CBS Mornings” from 4:00–6:00a, while also continuing to carry the West Coast editions of the CBS News’ morning program in its 7a time period. “By launching morning news on KCAL 9 and adding a second daily broadcast of ‘CBS Mornings’ on CBS 2, our local-to-global news organization is perfectly positioned to showcase its premium content on our broadcast and streaming channels in the Los Angeles market,” said Wendy McMahon, President and Co-Head, CBS News and Stations.

PRODUCTION & DEVELOPMENT

A seventh degree? Studio 1’s Adrian Woolfe and Claudia Rosencrantz have partnered with Kevin Bacon to create new format “Lucky 13,” a 60-minute general knowledge rolling quiz format designed for broadcast in primetime or access primetime. Created by Woolfe, the show’s executive Producers are Woolfe, Rosencrantz, Bacon and David Schiff. Bacon is slated to host the show in some international English-speaking markets.

The Walt Disney Company and Hybe have struck a content partnership to produce five projects for Disney’s streaming services, including three that feature K-Pop supergroup BTS or its members. “This collaboration represents our creative ambition – to work with iconic content creators and top stars in Asia Pacific so their talent can be enjoyed by mainstream audiences in multiple ways,” said Jessica Kam-Engle, APAC Head of Content for Disney.

The Cool Down, a content and commerce company, announced a $5.7 million seed funding round led by Upfront Ventures. Founded Dave Finocchio, co-founder of Bleacher Report, and Anna Robertson, former ABC and Yahoo News executive, The Cool Down is creating content across web and social platforms to engage more people in climate topics.

Black-owned animation studio Studio Smokescreen unveiled its first animated short, “Tent Sale,” produced with a team from underrepresented and marginalized communities. Studio Smokescreen is designed as “bridge studio,” which will train and develop talent on both in-house and commercial projects, giving them hands-on experience that helps them “bridge” their careers to larger companies and studios. “As we work on exciting animation projects we develop ourselves and animate for studio, network and streaming partners, we ultimately want to bring greater diversity to the animation industry as a whole,” said Smokescreen founder Kris Wimberly (“Elena of Avalor”).

Newly branded TV & film company Sipur (previously Tadmor Entertainment) has renewed its multi-year first-look production and distribution deal with MGM. Sipur is currently developing and producing a range of projects, including the critically documentary film and series, “The Devil’s Confession: The Lost Eichmann Tapes,” coproduced with MGM.

SPORTS

ESPN’s Steve Levy (play-by-play), Louis Riddick and Dan Orlovsky (analysts), along with Laura Rutledge (reporter), will broadcast multiple NFL games during the 2022 NFL season with ESPN’s NFL portfolio swelling to 21 regular season matchups this season. In advance of the season, ESPN has re-signed Levy, Riddick and Orlovsky, with each of them, along with Rutledge, playing an integral part in ESPN’s NFL coverage and beyond.

NBC Sports and the Bayou Classic agreed to a three-year media rights extension through 2024. The deal kicks off on November 26 with NBC Sports’ presentation continuing to showcase the Battle of the Bands, the celebrated tradition between the Southern and Grambling State marching bands, during the Bayou Classic Halftime Show. As part of the extension, Southern and Grambling State will participate in professional development programming through NBCU Academy and students at Southern and Grambling State will also have access to NBC Sports’ Black Employee Network.

TelevisaUnivision and Combate Global announced the return of the MMA franchise to Televisa channels “CANAL 5” and TUDN starting Friday at 11p. With the addition of Televisa channels “CANAL 5” and TUDN, to its media partnership portfolio, the promotion says its television footprint becomes the largest in North America of any combat sports organization in history.

PointsBet will now offer bettors on-demand streaming access to more than 40,000 premium games and matches through a two-year streaming partnership with IMG ARENA. “Our north star is in-play betting, and the ability to offer our users with on-demand streaming content to elevate live betting is paramount,” said PointsBet USA CEO Johnny Aitken. “PointsBet is recognized as the home of in-play betting, and this partnership with IMG ARENA solidifies our position as a leader in this space. We’re thrilled to tap into innovative concepts like this to improve the live betting experience for our users, all while bringing forth new ways to increase fan engagement throughout the year.”

TECH TALK

Disney Advertising and The Trade Desk have reached an agreement to power greater audience activation at scale programmatically. The deal will enable an integration between Disney’s proprietary Audience Graph and the open-source identity framework, Unified ID 2.0, within a secure environment, enabling buyers to discover more addressable, biddable inventory across the Disney portfolio, validated by Disney’s proprietary Audience Graph. “We have spent years investing in our data and technology strategy to create innovative solutions for advertisers to engage their audiences with greater precision and accuracy in a privacy-focused way,” said Rita Ferro, President, Advertising Sales, Disney Media & Entertainment Distribution. “This first-to-market capability sets the stage to empower access to the Disney portfolio, validated by powerful audience insights, in a way that’s automated and accessible.”

Brands and advertisers are leaning to immersive creative ad formats, like AR, Native Ads and Dynamic Creative Optimization, as device IDs and cookies are depreciating, according to part two of Emodo Institute’s Voice of the Marketer Series. Key findings include:
· For 74% of consumers, AR ads are “more likely to capture [their] interest or attention” than normal ads.
· Marketers concerned about privacy are 84% more likely to prioritize immersive creative formats, such as AR and 63% are more likely to use Native Advertising.
· 85% of users say DCO has driven “substantially better results” versus non-DCO ads.
“There is a creative renaissance in advertising,” concludes the report. “The industry shift towards ad creative is occurring simultaneously with the decline of audience tracking data and the strategic implications of both are certainly intertwined.”

COMING UP

Added to the roster of performers at Univision’s “Premios Juventud” (PJ/Youth Awards), airing Thursday, July 21, are Natti Natasha, DJ Adoni, Banda MS, Boza, and Cazzu, among others. The event kicks off with pre-show “Noche de Estrellas” at 7p.

STREAMING

Almost two thirds (62%) of TV homes report streaming using a smart TV, compared with 47% two years ago, according to Hub Entertainment Research’s fourth annual “Evolution of the TV Set” study. The increase is driven by increases in both smart TV homes and in the share of those homes using smart TVs to stream. In smart TV homes, 73% of respondents report using a smart TV for something other than TV programs or movies, up from 63% in 2020. The most popular non-TV activities on smart TVs are streaming music, mirroring or casting another screen to the set, checking news or weather apps, or using an on-set browser.

Synamedia has acquired cloud delivery platform Quortex, pioneer of just-in-time video processing for live streaming. If no one is watching a channel, resources are freed up, cutting cloud costs for long tail content up to 67%. “True innovation often derives from a dismantling of legacy approaches to a problem and Quortex has brought some timely fresh thinking to video streaming technology,” said Ben Keen, independent analyst and advisor. “The addition of this true SaaS proposition to the portfolio should allow Synamedia to offer live streaming services to a far broader range of increasingly cost-sensitive and environmentally-aware customers.”

Integral Ad Science introduced its third-party ad measurement technology to the digital audio streaming medium. Brands are now able to contract directly with IAS to measure a variety of audibility metrics as well as detect invalid traffic for the advertisers’ mobile audio ads on Pandora. “As advertisers follow consumers from traditional radio to digital streaming, IAS is extending our verification and IVT measurement solutions to help brands validate their media spend,” said Tom Sharma, Chief Product Officer, IAS. “Audio ad verification on Pandora provides critical information for advertisers looking to engage the millions of streamers who use the platform. Looking towards the future, IAS is continually innovating on further enhancements to offer our clients an advanced set of verification tools in the digital audio space.”

Crackle Plus inked a deal to launch five FAST channels on the TCL Channel free streaming platform in the US: Crackle, Crackle Classics, its newly launched Chicken Soup for the Soul FAST channel, Popcornflix and Truli, its faith and family streaming service.

GOING GLOBAL

UK’s Channel 4 has commissioned a one-hour documentary, “Myanmar: The Forgotten Revolution,” from Evan Williams Productions, which investigates three mass killings, with exclusive video footage and eyewitness accounts.

French production & distribution company Dandelooo has signed a deal with Grupo Globo in Brazil for the pre-school animated series “Petit” and “Ella Oscar & Hoo.” Both series will be available on Globo’s children’s OTT platform Giga Gloob and Pay TV channel Gloobinho.

Amcomri Entertainment has entered in to a four-picture deal with Malcolm Winter and Monika Gergelova’s UK based M & M Film Productions. The first film slated for production is period drama “Frankenstein: The Legacy.”

Chefclub and Pluto TV announced the launch of a standalone Chefclub channel in France. The partnership comes on the heels of Chefclub’s debut on Pluto TV’s channels in the US, Latin America, Spain and the UK in April this year.
