EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Behind the Scenes: The State of Inclusion and Equity in TV Writing

 

 

“Our data shows broad appeal across audiences for inclusive content on TV. Not only are viewers turning to television with the expectation to have their own identity groups represented, the content we consume is also a way to explore cultural experiences different from our own. Expanding diverse representation on screen is one part of meeting that demand. Ensuring we can move beyond stereotypes or tropes for diverse talent also requires we continue to diversify who writes–and edits–the story.” – Charlene Polite Corley, VP Diverse Insights & Partnerships at Nielsen.
