Before the hearing, even some of Levin’s allies worried privately about his taking on Goldman and other powerful interests. The job, they said, was best left to professional prosecutors, people with experience building cases. “A senator’s office is not an enormous repository of expertise,” one former regulator told me. But in the case of this particular senator, that concern turned out to be misplaced.

But it’s worth the risk and challenge that comes with it." Nick Santora, writer and executive producer on two Quibi shows — Most Dangerous Game and the Kiefer Sutherland thriller The Fugitive — was impressed by how quickly Quibi moved to make his shows. "Jeffrey Katzenberg is not a guy to sit on his hands," he says. "If he wants it done, he’s going to support you so it can get done." … [Read more...] about As Jeffrey Katzenberg’s Quibi Races Toward Launch, Will a Changed World Help or Hurt?
The Coronavirus is a very different beast to the last financial crash, but many are hoping that something good comes out of this chaos. Znak & Co. Founder Natalka Znak (Fox’s Ultimate Tag), says that her team is figuring out what kind of social experiments might work when this clears up and that tone is particularly important. “Everybody is trying to work out what that interesting, hit show that comes out of this or a new way of making shows.
