IN THE NEWS

Netflix is eyeing an early 2023 launch for its ad-supported tier. The company noted in the shareholder letter that accompanied its earnings report that it’s in the “early stages” of monetizing the 100 million-plus households currently using the service for free; it’s been testing in Latin America and is “encouraged by our early learnings and ability to convert consumers to paid sharing.” The streamer also noted a “lower priced advertising-supported offering will complement our existing plans, which will remain ad-free. Our global ARM has grown at a 5% compound annual rate from 2013 to 2021, so it makes sense now to give consumers a choice for a lower priced option with advertisements, if they desire it.”

Speaking of those quarterly earnings, Netflix beat expectations for Q2, reporting a decline of roughly 970,000 subscribers to end the period with a global total of 220.67 million—a smaller drop than analysts projected. The news sent the streamer’s stock up 7 percent in after-hours trading.

Nearly half of the 200 most popular scripted series of the 2021-22 season earned the ReFrame Stamp for gender-balanced hiring, according to ReFrame, an initiative rooted in the Sundance Institute and Women in Film Los Angeles, and IMDbPro. At 47 percent, the current number represents a 7 percent decrease from the previous season but more than double the number of shows that qualified when ReFrame Stamp first launched four years ago. Among other key findings of the 2021-22 report:
* The majority of showrunners are men, and the majority of women showrunners are white. Of the 200 shows analyzed, 29.5 percent had a woman showrunner; of those shows, only 3.5 percent had a woman of color showrunner.
* Men directed the majority of episodes; many women directed multiple episodes. Of the 2008 episodes analyzed, 36 percent were directed by 293 women.
* More women cinematographers are getting hired, but very few women of color. Twenty-two percent of the shows hired a woman cinematographer for at least one ep, an increase of more than 100 percent from prior year. However, only 3.5 percent of shows hired a cinematographer who was a woman of color. ReFrame and IMDbPro have renewed their collaboration on the Stamp initiative through 2025.
