“We took very seriously our duty to find TV and film partners that would respect and honor the work and mission of The 1619 Project, that understood our vision and deep moral obligation to doing justice to these stories. Through every step of the process, Lionsgate and its leadership have shown themselves to be that partner and it is a dream to be able to produce this work with Ms. Oprah Winfrey, a trailblazer and beacon to so many Black journalists,” said Hannah-Jones. “I am excited for this opportunity to extend the breadth and reach of The 1619 Project and to introduce these stories of Black resistance and resilience to even more American households.” … [Read more...] about Lionsgate, Oprah Winfrey Team With Pulitzer Prize Winner Nikole Hannah-Jones To Develop ‘The 1619 Project’ For Multiple Platforms
Lionsgate While one could argue that smaller- and medium-sized companies have less market clout and financial wherewithal in a crisis, Lionsgate recently got a callout from Creutz as his “best idea” in that part of the entertainment sector due in part to the fact that only 9 percent of its overall revenue is exposed to businesses impacted by the pandemic. “We view the recent share weakness as an opportunity to own Lionsgate stock at an attractive valuation given likely revenue and free cash flow acceleration into 2021,” he wrote in a June 18 report about the stock, which he rates at “outperform.” Highlighted Creutz: “Current valuation appears to exclude both any recognition that Lionsgate is less exposed to pandemic headwinds than advertising-exposed peers and the international Starz opportunity.” … [Read more...] about Which Struggling Hollywood Stocks Have an Upside This Year?

Tranter signed Shea Diamond to Facet before the pair wrote “I Am America” together. Diamond — who recently released a rock song with Dan Reynolds of Imagine Dragons and Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine to stand up against racism and police brutality — had written a song called “I Am Her” 15 years ago, while she was incarcerated in a men’s institution; the track was finally released in 2016. “I Am America” follows the earlier track’s spirit, and Tranter and Diamond consider its success an accomplishment for everyone who’s been forced to fight for their dreams in the face of constant rejection. The two are watching the nominations for the 72nd Emmy Awards — which will be announced on July 28th, ahead of the scheduled show date of September 20th — with bated breath. … [Read more...] about From Lady Gaga to HBO, Justin Tranter Is Writing Music to Celebrate Pride Every Day
