I’m happy to be rejoined by the first (and, perhaps one day, final) Bulwark Goes to Hollywood guest, Richard Rushfield for a conversation about Hollywood’s very shaky summer. Nine-figure flops, the collapse of IP, labor woes, C-suite shakeups: it’s a weird time out West. How is the industry going to handle it? And what might the future look like? All that and more on this week’s episode.
