☀️ AMAZON sets YouTuber feed with plans for more in NFL Thursday Night Football
PINTEREST stock pops 21% despite more Ad cutbacks / FIRST LADY axed at SHO / GEORGIA production spend booms
Mornin! This is Sean McNulty and here’s the Hollywood + Media news to know on TUESDAY August 2, 2022.
HOUSEKEEPING NOTE: A few folks have reached out over my time here thus far asking if there’s a way to designate a Wakeup email from other Ankler emails… since they’re all sent from “The Ankler”.
An easy solve is a little complicated… but the solution I’m going to try is putting this ☀️ in the subject line. (I wanted to do this one 🕺 but Janice wouldn’t let me).
Any thoughts or feedback (or if this triggers an email filter of yours to put it in the trash!) please let me know! SeanMcnultyNYC@gmail.com
So hopefully you begin to associate this ☀️ with me, and not something else…
AND: You can always adjust your Ankler subscription settings to just get whatever emails you like - here’s the How To on that.
ELSEWHERE: Paul Haggis’s Italian sexual assault case was dismissed by a judge, and assuming no further evidence is presented, it’ll be closed in a couple weeks. His rape lawsuit in NYC begins Oct 11.
ALSO: Hollywood has raised its production spending in GEORGIA by 50% since 2019, spending $4.4 Billion there in FY 2021 🍑. That includes 269 TV shows and 68 films.
ISRAEL is now also offering a 30% tax credit for foreign productions, up to $4.9 Million.
