Mornin! This is Sean McNulty (connect with me on LinkedIn here if ya like), and here’s the Hollywood + Media news to know on WEDNESDAY Oct 11, 2023.
Where uh, remind me to avoid something called “The Grove” out here in L.A. today. That’s the formerly under-wraps location for the big Eras Tour premiere tonight.
Road closures begin at 3 p.m. in case you wanna call it a day on the early side.
ALSO: 2300+ Hollywood producers have signed a letter asking the AMPTP to lose the “P”/producers from their name, as the overall implied… but incorrect association is ruining their ability to get good tables for lunch this year.
Anyone have new a suggested name for the AMPTP? My inbox is always open email@example.com. Please remember, this is a family newsletter.
EITHER WAY: SAG-AFTRA & the AMPT(P) are back in the negotiating room again today.
APPARENTLY: Will & Jada haven’t lived together for the past 7 years, per a Today interview this morning with Jada.
SORRY FOR THE DELAY: A thanks to all the execs whom I met with yesterday for making time in their schedules… but the travel (and traffic 🤬) around town did put a bit of a dent in my writing schedule (in addition to Ankler group dinner!), so my apologies for the late newsletter today.
BUT: A thanks to Richard for picking up the tab last night 🤝… he couldn’t have been happier when Janice informed him that she left her credit card at home. Again. (just kidding)
AND A SPECIAL THANKS: To the USC Marshall School of Business for the invitation to come chat with some future media executives in its MBA program yesterday - yes, apparently folks still want to work in Hollywood after reading this newsletter! I know right?
