Gary Marsh is exiting his post as President and Chief Creative Officer of Disney Branded Television at the close of 2021, ending a 33-year executive run with the company. However, he won’t be leaving Disney. Marsh will be transitioning to a broad production pact with Disney General Entertainment, where he’ll develop content for all Disney platforms from ABC to National Geographic, as well as programs for children and youth. Marsh begins the deal with commitments to develop two new “Descendants” movies, working on a “Beauty and the Beast” prequel and collaborating with producer John Davis on “Witch Mountain.”

A “Quantum Leap” reboot could be on the horizon, according to Scott Bakula. During a guest appearance on Bob Saget’s “Here For You” podcast, Bakula said that the 1989-93 NBC fantasy series could see a new day – but it’s complicated. “There are significant conversations about it right now going on,” Bakula told Saget. “I don’t know what it would be. I don’t know who would have it. The rights were a mess for years. I don’t know if they’re even sorted out now. That’s always been the biggest complication.”

Nielsen announced an “Impressions First Initiative” to support the move to impressions-based buying and selling in local markets. The move to impressions will occur in conjunction with the integration of broadband only homes into Nielsen’s local measurement metrics in January 2022, and lays the groundwork for implementing Nielsen ONE across local, national, and digital measurement. “Impressions are the great equalizer across all screens, programs, listeners and viewers,” said David Kenny, CEO of Nielsen, “Nielsen’s move to prioritize reporting impressions will help standardize the way it measures ads and content, enabling greater comparability across National, Local and Digital and is in line with Nielsen’s initiative to drive comparable metrics which are foundational to Nielsen ONE.”

The 2021 “BET Hip Hop Awards” return to the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre in Atlanta, GA, on Friday, October 1.

The annual celebration brings together hip hop stars, who pay homage to the best in hip hop culture. Cardi B, Lil Durk and Megan Thee Stallion lead this year’s nominations with nine nods each.

Influencer marketing platform CreatorIQ has acquired influencer marketing analytics platform Tribe Dynamics. The deal brings together Tribe Dynamics’ analytics and benchmarking solutions with the ability to make those insights actionable through CreatorIQ’s Creator Intelligence Cloud. The combined company will extend CreatorIQ’s position as the largest influencer marketing SaaS platform in terms of revenue growth, data authority and global expansion with over 450 customers, 250 employees and $90 million in funding.
