🎧 Joy, Worry and 'Very Tired Tears'
Exhausted and exhilarated, actors (and an entire industry) enter the next phase of a changed Hollywood
The longest actors strike in history is over, but a scarred landscape of reduced spending, fewer shows and a shrinking job market awaits. Sean McNulty, Elaine Low and Richard Rushfield reveal what executives are saying privately, and how to interpret those messages coming from Disney’s Bob Iger to WBD’s David Zaslav. To top it off, labor discontent is still afoot: Elaine interviews former Love is Blind alums Nick Thompson and Jeremy Hartwell, who detail “inhumane” treatment on the show as advocates for reality TV’s unionization (32:21), and, on a lighter note, the team offers a round of winter box-office predictions (24:54).
