In the last year, women and people of color in the television industry have made strides on camera, but they still have a ways to go behind it.
The 2020 UCLA Hollywood Diversity Report, released this morning, finds that just 8% of studio chairs and CEOs are people of color and 32% are women.
Further down the food chain is no better, with people of color making up only about one-quarter of credited writers in broadcast, cable, and digital and just under 22% of episodes could claim a POC as director in 2018-2019.
Another problem area with a diversity is show creators. Minority representation was 10.3% in digital, 10.7% in cable, and 14.7% in cable, while women were 28.6%, 28.1%, and 22.4%, respectively.
