Peak TV Gives Way to More Actors-Turned-Producers

Peak TV Gives Way to More Actors-Turned-Producers
Peak TV has yet to truly peak. In his most recent Television Critics Assn. press tour exec session, FX Networks CEO John Landgraf estimated that 2017 could see as many as 534 new original scripted television series air before the year’s end. That would represent an 18% increase from last year — and a 154% increase from 2009.

Landgraf tied the ever-growing number of television series to macroeconomic trends that have been decades in the making, as well as a “titanic struggle” between old-school media conglomerates and the emerging tech giants looking to eat their lunch.

But peak TV has also had more microeconomic effects than even Landgraf could count. Among them is the empowerment of on-camera talent. In a world of 534 call sheets, a different actor’s name tops each. More and more, those actors are leveraging the demand for lead performers to secure producing roles — and not just in name only.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus has more leverage than most. Already

Director and new castmate for 'Delirium' TV adaptation unveiled
The cast of Fox's book-to-tv adaptation of Lauren Oliver's Delirium is currently assembled and working on the show, but there are still a few new details to be learned from the series yet! Thanks to detective work done by the folks at Delirium.net and some generous Instagramming by the show's male lead Daren Kagasoff, the pilot's director has been revealed to be Rodrigo Garcia. Garcia has gobs and gobs of executive producing experience, but he's also directed a few series, including Carnivale, Six Feet Under, In Treatment, Christine and Blue.

Laurence Fishburne's Son, Langston Fishburne, Takes A Stab At Acting In Wigs Series

The ever-expanding world of webisodes has hit a new high with Christine, a 12-part series that chronicles one woman's search for love via speed dating.

ETonline sat down with Ferrera to talk about her first foray into online content, what attracted her to the project and why there's a little piece of Christine in all of us.

ETonline: What appealed to you about Christine?

America Ferrera: First and foremost, the biggest attraction for me was Rodrigo Garcia, the writer/director. When he reached out to me, I was very interested. Then I read the script and was even more intrigued. I was excited
