CNN+ To Shut Down After One Month

Less than one month after it launched, streaming service CNN+ will wind down operations as Warner Bros. Discovery retools its streaming strategy. Launched on March 29th, the service is set to shut down on April 30th and subscribers will receive prorated refunds for their fees. Employees were informed of the decision Thursday by incoming CNN CEO Chris Licht. WarnerMedia reportedly spent some $300 million on the launch of the service which was heavily criticised for being too little, too late. Then of course came the newly formed Warner Bros. Discovery with mostly new executives in charge and everything is up for review. In a statement, Licht says: “As we become Warner Bros. Discovery, CNN will be strongest as part of WBD’s streaming strategy which envisions news as an important part of a compelling broader offering along with sports, entertainment, and nonfiction content. We have therefore made the decision to cease operations of CNN+ and focus our investment on CNN’s core news-gath..

In the wake of ‘the slap’ and his resignation from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the repercussions for actor Will Smith due to the now-infamous Oscars incident continue. Bloomberg reports that Netflix has cancelled the upcoming sequel to the sci-fi human-and-orc cop drama “Bright” which starred Smith and Joel Edgerton. Louis Leterrier was slated to direct the follow-up, taking over from David Ayer. The critically panned first film was one of the streamer’s earliest original feature success stories and a sequel was ordered, but interest wasn’t high and it already had baggage in the form of the first film’s screenwriter Max Landis. Meanwhile, Disney-owned National Geographic is delaying production on the nature series “Pole To Pole” which is to feature Smith visiting the North and South Poles. Production was set to begin in three weeks and has now been tentatively planned to begin in the Fall. The fate of the action film “Fast and Loose” and crime biopic “The Counc..
