  • The Wrap
May is a busy month for Netflix, with a long list of new titles coming to the streaming service, including a whole lot of Netflix originals.

We’re also getting “Tuca & Bertie,” a new animated series about a pair of bird-besties voiced by Ali Wong and Tiffany Haddish, and “What/If,” an anthology series that explores morality starring Renée Zellweger.

Summer Box Office Preview: How ‘Avengers’ and Other Disney Hits Could Save a Dismal Year So Far

Summer Box Office Preview: How ‘Avengers’ and Other Disney Hits Could Save a Dismal Year So Far
The Avengers are assembling one more time — and not a moment too soon for a domestic box office that is down 16% compared to last year despite a string of winter hits like “Captain Marvel,” “Shazam!” and Jordan Peele’s “Us.”

Disney’s sure-to-be blockbuster “Avengers: Endgame,” out this Friday, will kick off a summer season that could come close to matching or even toppling last year’s near-record $4.8 billion in domestic ticket sales, analysts told TheWrap.

That’s thanks to Disney’s mighty franchise-heavy slate — made mightier still by the acquisition of 20th Century Fox and new franchise plays like the “X-Men” spinoff “Dark Phoenix” — as well as rival studios’ plans to release their own sequels and spinoffs of familiar IP such as “Spider-Man,” “Men in Black” and “Fast & Furious.”

“If the marketing is good enough by all the studios and the movies actually back up the hype with good quality,

Beyoncé’s $60M Netflix Deal Is Latest in Sharp Rise of Network Pacts With Black Women Creatives

Streaming giant Netflix has inked a mega three-project deal with global superstar Beyoncé Knowles, worth a reported $60 million, a third of which went to her recent, much-anticipated behind-the-scenes Coachella concert special, “Homecoming,” the first of the trio. It’s a significant agreement that is representative of a recent sharp rise in content pacts with African American female creatives.

As TV networks target the African American market ever more aggressively, a corresponding rise in demand for content for that audience has meant a demonstrable increase in exclusive access to African American content creators who networks are clearly willing to pay up for.

It’s noteworthy that Knowles’ previous three TV specials — “Lemonade” (2016), “Life Is But a Dream” (2013) and the “On the Run” concert special (2014) — were all HBO broadcasts, but “Homecoming” was not. A likely explanation for that, according to Vulture, citing unnamed sources, is that binge-spending Netflix stepped in and offered
