Terry’s Picks: NYC Pilots, Good News, Overlooked Women

NYC Pilots: Business is booming in New York, with 11 hour-long pilots shooting here this year. This ties with the previous record year, 2012.

Good News: Although Ava Duvernay’s A Wrinkle in Time wasn’t able to beat Black Panther at the box office, the films still made history, as both the #1 and #2 spots were held by studio films directed by people of color with black leading actors. Black Panther is also doing exceptionally well overseas. Not only do diverse voices matter – but they also make money!

Overlooked Women: The New York Times acknowledged that of the thousands of obituaries it has published since 1851, the vast majority have been of white men. Even in the last two years, only one in five obituary subjects have been female. In honor of Women’s History Month, they are launching Overlooked, a new series that will provide obituaries for important women in history previously overlooked by the paper.
