The Cable Guy Has to Pay More Attention to the Boomer Plus Generation
Content Insider #385 - Cable's Saviors
People everywhere are forecasting the demise of cable TV as we know it today and it's true the number of subscribers will drop significantly over the next three-five years. But it will take years for the "here's this big gob of channels/shows at a huge monthly price" to disappear. Who will be holding up the immedaite move to OTT (Over The Top) 4K viewing when you want, where you want - on smart UHD sets, mobile devices? The boomer and post-boomer generations were raised (brainwashed) that you watched a specific show on a specific day at a specific time or else. Millenial and younger generations will only use the cable for their Internet/OTT streaming services. And when the boomers are gone... Read More

 Tom Rothman on His Sony Era:
The new Tom Rothman era at Sony Pictures Entertainment represents a potential sea change at a film studio that had — at least until quite recently — been known to be among the most talent-friendly and free-spending in town. When it comes to financial discipline, 60 year-old Rothman, is the diametric opposite of exiting SPE co-chairman Amy Pascal, who, it was initially announced, was to remain in her post until May, but who now will cede the job immediately.

Battered Rahm
 Battered Rahm
Rahm Emanuel — one of the most celebrated political tacticians of his era — is in an unusual position heading into Tuesday’s mayoral election: battered, bruised and limping to the finish line. He has massively out-fundraised his rivals, a ragtag group of less well known, and far less skilled, politicos. He’s flooded TV airwaves with splashy commercials. Sources say he’s been consulting his old boss, Chicago’s own Barack Obama, about the race on a regular basis; the president has cut radio ads for Emanuel and trekked to the city on Thursday to stump for him. Yet for all that, Emanuel, a top White House aide in two administrations and an ex-congressman, may not win a majority of the vote. That embarrassing scenario would force him into an April runoff — and mean six more weeks of defending the nonstop controversy that’s been the hallmark of his time as mayor.

Smith's Overbrook Entertainment will produce the action-thriller along with Adam Kolbrenner of Madhouse Entertainment. Madhouse's Robyn Meisinger will exec produce. Paramount's Alana Mayo was the exec that championed the project in a competitive situation.
