IN THE NEWS
 
Mary J. Blige will headline Starz’ Power spinoff, Power Book II: Ghost, now in pre-production. “I’m a huge fan for life, and I’m so grateful to be a part of it,” the singer/actress told the TCA summer press tour crowd. 
 
Hulu renewed The Handmaid’s Tale for a fourth season; the third run of the dystopian drama wraps August 14. The announcement was made at TCA. Also unveiled at TCA was a new Hulu series starring Padma Lakshmi (Top Chef). Ten-parter covers culinary traditions across the country.
 
During its TCA time, Starz announced a third season of The Girlfriend Experience, as well as new period drama Dangerous Liaisons, inspired by the novel and focused on the early years of Merteuil and Valmont. Liaisons is executive produced by Playground’s Colin Callender (Wolf Hall), Tony Krantz (24), Bethan Jones (Les Misérables), Scott Huff (The Spanish Princess), and Christopher Hampton (Dangerous Liaisons).
 
Also on deck at Starz: true crime docu-series Leavenworth, centered on the story of a former lieutenant in Afghanistan, Clint Lorance, serving a 19-year sentence for murder and seeking to overturn his conviction.  
 
The Department of Justice gave the stamp of approval to the $26 billion merger of T-Mobile and Sprint. As part of the deal, the new company will sell Sprint’s Boost Mobile, Virgin Mobile and Sprint prepaid mobile services to Dish Network for $1.4 billion. “Today marks an incredibly important step forward for the New T-Mobile,” said CEO John Legere. “We are ready to bring this supercharged Un-carrier to consumers and businesses across the country, and this milestone brings us much closer to making that vision a reality.”
 
Joining the team at Epix weekly series NFL: The Grind are Brett Favre, Charles Woodson, Terrell Owens, DeMarcus Ware, Chad Johnson, Clinton Portis and Michael Vick. “Our goal with NFL: The Grind is to present fans with deeper insight and a more unique point of view of storytelling than they have seen during the NFL season,” said Epix President Michael Wright. “These legendary personalities will bring insight, access and perspective to the stories they will be part of that can’t be manufactured; it will be authentic, real and passionate.”
 
Charter Communications missed 2Q19 expectations with reported earnings of $1.39 per share. Total revenue was up 4.5% over the prior-year period. Asked why the company doesn’t raise prices to cover increased programming costs, CEO Tom Rutledge said, “If you do a 10% programming price increase and lose 10% of your customers, you don’t really get anywhere and yet you’ve alienated a lot of people. In fact, that’s actually happening and has been happening. I expect continuous fighting for the foreseeable future.”
 
This industry is all about firsts. You can show how your team is ahead of the pack by entering the 7th Annual Cynopsis Digital Model D Awards (for campaigns, content & tech) and the Digital “It List” (for individuals). Entries are due by Thursday, August 1 so get started today!
 
Comedy Central and Sundance Institute today announced the launch of Sundance Institute | Comedy Central Comedy Fellowship, which will fund one Comedy Fellowship to the Sundance Institute Episodic Lab and one Comedy Fellowship to the Sundance Institute Screenwriters Lab. Fellows will be selected by Sundance Institute’s curatorial team in collaboration with Comedy Central, from among the Lab Fellows developing comedy projects.  
 
Court TV will be the only network that covers the Harvey Weinstein rape trial in New York, scheduled for September, “in virtual real time,” said VP and managing Editor John Alleva at TCA. The net is adding distribution in 17 major markets in October that will put it in 90% of U.S. broadcast homes.
 
Amazon horror anthology Lore was canceled after two seasons and comedy Forever after one. In addition, Amazon Studios chief Jennifer Salke said no more seasons are in the works right now for anthology series The Romanoffs or cop drama Too Old to Die Young. The streamer is also “not planning a new season” for comedy Patriot, said co-head of TV Albert Cheng.
 
On the flip side, Amazon renewed The Expanse for season five. Season four of the drama, which started on Syfy, launches December 13.
 
Starz canceled comedy Now Apocalypse after one season, and drama Counterpart after two. “When you look at bringing shows back, it really has to serve that core premium female audience and if it doesn’t we have to find something else,” said Starz COO Jeffery Hirsch of male-skewing Counterpart. “If it doesn’t serve our core strategy, we’re just not going to do it.”
 
MORE TCA TAKES
 
Is using the horror genre the best way to elevate the real-life horror surrounding the Japanese internment camps during WW2? Actor George Takei, who stars and serves as a consulting producer on the second season of AMC anthology series The Terror: Infamy, says yes. The New season, which bows Monday August 12, combines a chilling drama set in a camp with traditional Japanese horror stories (called kaidan). “You have 10 hours spread over a 10-week period, and once we grab the audience with the first episode, we want to keep ahold of them and the horror elements, which is organic to the generation of immigrant culture, contributes to our dramatists building it to a wonderful, spine-tingling cliff hanger and you’ll be sure to tune in next week,” Takei tells Cynopsis. “This is story-telling, and we want to be successful at keeping the audience. And for me, my mission in life personally is to raise the awareness of this chapter in American history so that Americans are mindful of this history and have this knowledge.” Takei’s family was interned for nearly three beginning when he was just 5 years old; his book They Called Us Enemy was published in mid-July.
 
IFC’s new John Legend-produced series Sherman’s Showcase is a real show about a fake music variety show a la Soul Train and Solid Gold, that mashes music and comedy and features a slew of guest turns from Tiffany Haddish to Quincy Jones to Morris Day to Common. The show is proof positive of an adage its creators, former Late Night with Jimmy Fallon writers Diallo Riddle and Bashir Salahuddin, hold dear: “What we learned is something Dave Chapelle said: Every musician thinks they’re funny, and every comedian wants to do music,” Salahuddin tells Cynopsis, noting that connecting the two genres was a labor of love. “The testament to the show being good is that Diallo and I have the experience of taking things that need work and spending time on them,” he adds. “Nothing is getting on Jimmy Fallon’s air without a sign-off, and we have a similar standard for ourselves – definitely for the comedy, and even for the music too.” Series debuts Wednesday.

The Oscar winner is being honored for his advocacy for putting civics back in schools, as well as issues of privacy, freedom of speech, democracy and individual accountability.
 
TECH TALK
 
Viamedia announced the launch of QTT, a patent pending technology aimed at growing cable TV ad dollars by tapping into the programmatic digital advertising marketplace.  In market trials this summer, QTT enables digital supply side platforms and their demand side platform partners to dynamically access linear cable TV inventory in real time. QTT’s breakthrough is converting a standard SCTE 35 cue tone into an IAB-compliant VAST ad request infused with rich content and audience metadata for segmentation and targeting.  
 
STREAMING
 
Netflix could be just the right digital platform to integrate dynamic product placement, according to a new report from MIDiA. The move would provide non-intrusive ad revenue for the streaming service and provide brands with access to the 26% of Netflix’s valuable paywalled subscriber base who respond favorably to relevant ads, according to the report, which says Netflix’s paying subscribers are 6% more likely than the average consumer to pay attention to brands that sponsor shows, than those that just have ads.
 
Obstacle Course Racing Media Network has launched OCRM TV, a 24/7 live feed of athletes competing for the UNAA World Championship.
   
ADVERTISING
 
NBCUniversal wrapped its upfront deals with a 10% increase versus last year, notching $7 billion across broadcast, cable and digital. The tally includes revenue for the 2020 Summer Olympics; without the Games, the company is still up 3%.
 
GOING GLOBAL
 
ODMedia Group, the Dutch content services and processing company for on-demand media, has taken over the activities of Benelux branding firm effiecient. Helmut Ramak, CEO of effiecient, will now serve as Head of Marketing for ODMedia Group. 

 

CASTING
 
Yellowstone’s Forrie Smith has been upped from recurring to season regular for the Paramount Network drama’s upcoming season three…Mahershala Ali (Moonlight) will guest on season two of Hulu comedy RamyDeborah Ayorinde (Luke Cage) and Ashley Thomas (Salvation) will star in Amazon anthology series Them: Covenant.
The future of AI is similar to the future of most every new technology, which in short is improvement, commoditization, and democratization. How do we make it better, cheaper and get it into the hands of more people?
