IN THE NEWS

Chris Albrecht, President of Legendary Television and former Chairman of HBO, has been placed on a leave of absence, according to a company spokesperson. The move comes as forthcoming book It’s Not TV: The Spectacular Rise, Revolution, and Future of HBO offers new details about a 1991 incident in which Albrecht choked, then allegedly disparaged a staffer, who left following a settlement brokered by HBO. “After more than 30 years an old, flawed story is now being refurbished and recycled for the sake of sales,” said Albrecht in a statement. “I have sincerely apologized to those whom I offended with disrespect and utterly unacceptable behavior. But that doesn’t sell books or generate media attention.” The book comes out November 1.

Angela Lansbury, beloved star of the stage, film and television, died October 11 at age 96. The five-time Tony winner was best known to TV audiences for her 1985-96 role as Jessica Fletcher on “Murder, She Wrote.” “She, my darlings, was EVERYTHING,” tweeted Harvey Fierstein. Jason Alexander remembered Lansbury as “one of the most versatile, talented, graceful, kind, witty, wise, classy ladies I’ve ever met.”

As more companies are entering the media measurement fray, Nielsen Holdings has completed its sale to private equity investors led byElliott Investment Management and Brookfield Business, in a deal valued at $16 billion. “Nielsen created the blueprint for audience measurement, and we believe it is in the best position to be the leader in measurement for the streaming era and to continue to provide value for the new media ecosystem,” said Senior Portfolio Manager Marc Steinberg and Senior Managing Director Isaac Kim on behalf of Elliott and Evergreen.

Showtime’s “The Man Who Fell to Earth” will end after one season. While Showtime considered continuing with the adaptation of the 1963 novel and 1976 film, the network “ultimately decided to embrace it as a one season story well told.”

H-commerce, the fusion of online and offline shopping, is the gold standard in modern day shopping, according to “Brand Disruption 2023: The IAB Annual Report on the Evolving Consumer Ecosystem.” Brands and retailers should ensure they are connecting the technological convenience of digital with the tactile nature of a physical presence, advises the report. Other insights include:
· The seismic shift in consumer and brand interest driving the Creator Economy is redefining what consumers watch, how advertising is executed, and how consumer products are born. Brands and retailers should embrace a mix of creator-driven and professionally-produced content.
· Beyond the hype, the metaverse will be a shopping medium. Brands and retailers should be testing its potential now and building plans to prepare for the shoppers who will be appearing at their virtual stores.
· Privacy legislation is increasingly threatening businesses both large and small. Successful companies are those that utilize tools and technology to recoup signal loss in a privacy-compliant manner.

Two weeks into its freshman season, Food Network’s “Bobby’s Triple Threat” has been renewed for round two, slated for 2023. “Our viewers embraced ‘Bobby’s Triple Threat’ right away – from episode one, we knew they loved seeing Bobby in a new master-of-ceremonies role showcasing chefs that he is passionate about,” said Jane Latman, President of Home and Food Content and Streaming for Warner Bros. Discovery. “The speakeasy vibe and elite cooking rounds make this show a unique experience that our audience wants more of.” The cooking competition, starring celebrity chef Bobby Flay, is the network’s highest-rated new launch.

Amazon is asking a federal judge to dismiss a lawsuit claiming that the company wrongly uses voice recordings captured by Alexa to target ads, arguing that the allegations in the complaint would only show that the company targets ads based on transactions people make via Alexa, not to record of users’ conversations. “In their complaint, plaintiffs conspicuously never allege facts showing that Amazon uses Alexa recordings to serve interest-based ads (because they have no good-faith basis for that allegation),” the company says. “The complaint instead uses the intentionally vague term ‘voice data’ for the notion that certain transaction data resulting from Alexa interactions is sometimes used for advertising. Yes, it is, and Amazon widely and clearly discloses that fact.”

Netflix could draw 7.5 million subscribers to its ad-supported tier in 2023, projects JP Morgan analyst Doug Anmuth, and $600 million in ad sales. By 2026, the estimate jumps to 22 million subscribers and $2.65 billion in ad sales. “Given Netflix’s recently muted sub growth, advertising is critical to re-accelerating revenue, expanding Netflix’s SAM [subscription addressable market], and driving greater profitability,” said Anmuth. “The Netflix narrative has shifted from slow/no sub growth on the current business to advertising and paid sharing coming in 2023.”

Hallmark Media has partnered with Canela Media’s Spanish-language AVOD service, Canela.TV, in a first-time outreach to US Spanish-speaking viewers. “Our storytelling revolves around those elements that reflect the heart and soul of the Hispanic community – love, family, traditions, celebratory gatherings, and joy,” said Judi Lopez, EVP, Distribution, Hallmark Media. “This important partnership with Canela Media allows us to deepen our connection with our existing Hispanic viewers, while expanding that audience.”
