IN THE NEWS

Discovery+ struck a licensing deal with NBCUniversal Global Distribution that will add a surplus of reality library titles to the streaming service’s roster. Seasons of “The Biggest Loser,” “Flipping Out,” “American Ninja Warrior,” “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” and “The Real Housewives” franchise are among content headed to the streamer.

Telemundo Enterprises will debut content brand Tplus on sister NBCU streamer Peacock this fall. The launch coincides with Telemundo’s exclusive Spanish-language coverage of the World Cup in Qatar. Tplus content—including scripted and unscripted series and features, sports and music—will be available on Peacock’s premium tier. Among projects in the works are a docuseries about music star J Balvin; a film about soccer great Lionel Messi; anthology docuseries “Mysteries & Scandals” (wt); and “Young at Heart” (wt), a reality dating series from Kinetic Content (“Love is Blind”). Telemundo Enterprises also inked a first-look development deal with Bianca Quesada’s Arcus Studios, home of “Vida.”

Apple TV+’s “Ted Lasso,” HBO Max’s “Hacks,” Showtime’s “Yellowjackets,” Hulu’s “Only Murders in the Building” and Disney+’s “Loki” rounded out the list in the best new TV series category for Writers Guild of America Awards, announced yesterday.

NY-based LGBTQ+ film and mediaorganization NewFest launched the New Voices Filmmaker Grant in partnership with Netflix. Created to support emerging LGBTQ+ filmmakers, the initiative will select four filmmakers this year and next who will each receive a $25,000 grant and receive custom mentorship. The partnership falls under Netflix’s Fund for Creative Equity, established to help create more behind-the-camera opportunities for underrepresented communities.

The clock has run down on “60 Minutes+.” Paramount+ canceled the streaming version of the CBS News series after its freshman season. The program featured lengthier news segments and a new team of correspondents, who all had reported for “60 in 6,” the shortform newsmagazine that aired on short-lived service Quibi in 2020.

Amid the Omicron surge, the Producers Guild of America is pushing back its 33rd annual Producers Guild Awards. The ceremony, originally scheduled for February 26, will now take place on Saturday, March 19.

ViacomCBS and Comcast inked a multiyear distribution renewal that adds BET+ to the fold of CBS and cable networks the cable system carries in the US.

In a hybrid model of streaming and theatrical distribution, MGM and Amazon closed deals for US and international rights, respectively, to Jake Gyllenhaal and Guy Ritchie’s untitled Afghan war movie. The big-budget action-thriller will see Gyllenhaal playing Sgt. John Kinley, who forms a fast bond with a local interpreter after they’re the only survivors of an ambush.
