☀️Sandler & Aniston still dominate - but Old DWA Family Pics surge on NETFLIX Film Chart
NETFLIX Ad VP shares buying insights / Julie Bowen set to lead PEACOCK series / SCREAM directors set UNI pic
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 April 12, 2023.
Where it’s HBODISCOMAX+ details day! Still holding out hope that’s the real new name 🤞.
Although given we already know the price, that DISCO+ will remain a separate service, and (very likely) the name - definitely curious to see what WBD is bringing to the table for an IRL presentation event with numerous invited reporters present (I’m more of a live-stream kinda guy personally).
Elaine Low will be putting together all the coverage you need at The Ankler this afternoon of the big WBD event, so depending on if anyone else does anything in town today #SpringBreak4Real… well, if you don’t see a Wakeup tomorrow, that’s why.
