Hollywood’s Invisible Minority: People With Disabilities Eager to Show Their Abilities

9 December 2016 3:06 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Oscar nominations will be announced Jan. 24, and it’s likely the contenders will include black artists, and possibly some Latino/Hispanics and Asians. But there will be little to no representation for a major under-represented group — people with disabilities, or Pwd.

According to the Census Bureau, there are 57 million Americans with disabilities, or 19% of the population. TV hiring is about 2.4%. The film industry is worse, at 0.9%.

Scott Silveri is the creator of ABC’s freshman series “Speechless,” which stars Micah Fowler, who has cerebral palsy. Silveri tells Variety that Hollywood execs are not resistant to hiring: “Nobody is building walls. But disabilities are not getting enough attention. It’s as simple as that. When you consider the number of people with disabilities, you’d think this would be more of a conversation in town.”

Silveri was an honoree at November’s Media Access Awards, which honors industry hiring for Pwd. Silveri »

Fox Cancels ‘The Grinder,’ ‘Grandfathered,’ ‘Bordertown’ After First Seasons

12 May 2016 5:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Fox has cancelled “Grandfathered,” “The Grinder” and animated comedy “Bordertown,” Variety has learned.

The Grinder” starred Rob Lowe, “Grandfathered” starred John Stamos, and “Bordertown” hailed from “Family Guy” exec producers Seth MacFarlane and Mark Hentemann. All three comedies launched this past TV season, with “Grinder” and “Grandfathered” paired together on Tuesdays as a back-to-back night of new sitcoms with famous faces, and “Bordertown” airing Sunday night as part of Fox’s animation block.

Lowe tweeted his reaction to the cancellation on Thursday afternoon.

#TheGrinder was not renewed by @Foxtv It was unapologetically original, smart, funny and had a murder's row of talent. #GrinderRests.

Rob Lowe (@RobLowe) May 12, 2016

The great news is, that film is forever. And I'm thrilled to have 22 episodes that were as acclaimed as they were. Time well spent!

Rob Lowe (@RobLowe) May 12, 2016

And there is still Grindr. So there's that. #NotAllBadNews
