    I know it's not exactly what the image is saying, but anything remotely detaching "fandoms" from female audiences is ludicrous. Stuff like Supernatural when its Netflix contract runs out obviously fits more on the HBO max side of that split.

    IDK if I would consider anything "safe" yet cause tbh they weren't gonna announce BAD news like cancelling a bunch of shows or delaying movies on an earnings call. They want their stock to go up in the morning, not tank it. All the really bad news leaked before this and probably wouldn't have been announced at this thing anyways.
    I’m sure it was from some management consultant ‘research’ that is present in every media company’s strategy books (eg 4- quadrant audience speak). It’s just a shock that they would make it public like that with no thought about the optics.

    Anyway Anne Thompson on the latest Indiewire podcast was nauseatingly complimentary of Zaslav, even calling him ‘Zas’

    Yeah I guess the timing is key. The merger was completed on April 8th. Everything renewed after that was probably done under the new regime (Hacks, OFMD, Minx, Tokyo Vice)

    People shouldn’t doubt this
    Like I said in the Emmy predix thread, early buzz is amazing.

    I mean he created Chernobyl and the writer and director of the game is co-writing the series, so I think it will be fine.

    Yes that’s what I meant - doesn’t seem like Chernobyl was a fluke for him. As compared to all his writing credits prior (afaik think he is uncredited for a lot of script work he did in the past. I mostly remember him as Ted Cruz’s college roommate who verified Cruz has always been pathetic lol)

    I guess all the high profile projects are safe.. assumed they wouldn’t wanna piss off anyone too important. Unfortunate for the stuff like Chad, Scoob and Batgirl etc that their creatives are seen as worthwhile sacrifices.

    If they can axe a project from Abrams, then nothing is safe.

    His stock has dropped quite a bit after TROS though and it sounds like it was because he was spending years not actually making any progress. idk

    Yeah, it wouldn't surprise me if they just let Abrams go to Apple.

    $200m term deal with a few million spent on pilots that went nowhere - those type of big money deals for one “visionary” likely to be put on ice for a while.

    That was an insane deal to begin with so canning it was absolutely the right call. Abrams really hasn't delivered in a long time (TFA I guess at least on a financial level) and totally doesn't deserve this kind of leeway lol.
