Despite recent layoffs, Netflix said it is doubling down on Los Angeles, filming at least 70 productions in the area this year as the streamer spends roughly $18 billion on content globally. latimes.com/entertainment-…
Netflix recently laid off 150 workers after reporting its first subscriber decline in more than a decade. But the cutbacks have not slowed the pace of production activity in L.A., where the streamer is doubling down and expanding its presence. latimes.com/entertainment-…
Netflix productions filmed in L.A. include #NeverHaveIEver Season 4, #FromScratch with Zoe Saldana and courtroom drama #TheLincolnLawyer.

Several Netflix movies also have filmed locally, including #TheGrayMan and Zack Snyder’s #RebelMoon. latimes.com/entertainment-…
“We just think it’s really important that we lean into Los Angeles because of the talent base,” said Amy Reinhard, vice president of studio operations. latimes.com/entertainment-…
Gregg Mettler, showrunner and executive producer of the Sunset Bronson Studios-based #That90sShow, says it “goes a long way toward creating an upbeat and positive set” when people can spend time with their loved ones. His production supports 150 families. latimes.com/entertainment-… Image
Some industry observers are wondering how long Netflix can keep up its pace, as the company trims costs and lays off workers. Netflix lost 200,000 subscribers in the first quarter and is expected to lose 2 million more this quarter. latimes.com/entertainment-…
At least three people who do business with Netflix and who were not authorized to speak publicly say they feel development has slowed. “There hasn’t been the same rapid pace of activity they have always been known for,” said one person. latimes.com/entertainment-…

After three turbulent years atop one of college baseball’s proudest programs, USC and head coach Jason Gill have mutually agreed to part ways.

Gill departs after #USC finished last in the Pac-12 and over a year after the university opened an investigation into his conduct as coach.

The news was made official Monday, when baseball players and staff were asked to meet to discuss the program.
Gill took the reins in fall 2019, promising a hard-nosed culture focused on restoring pride and discipline to the faltering program. But concerns from players, parents and other members of the baseball community triggered multiple reviews. latimes.com/sports/usc/sto…

Fewer than a third of the city’s registered voters surveyed said they approve of the LAPD’s overall performance — a drop from 2009, when a Times poll found 77% of people approved of the department.

Thread 👇
And a majority of respondents believe LAPD officers are tougher on Black residents than other Angelenos. Nearly half said such racial inequities are the result of systemic problems within the department, not just the behavior of individual officers.

Support for the LAPD today is even lower than in 1991, shortly after the beating of Rodney King, when 46% of people polled said they approved of the department.

Saturday morning on the shores of Huntington Beach, Nathan Fluellen invited Black people of all ages to “A Great Day in the Stoke,” an event that he founded and coined as “the largest gathering of Black surfers in history.”
Fluellen said the idea for the event came to him in the aftermath of 2020s racial reckoning when Black surfers staged “paddle outs” in honor of murdered Black people such as George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor, who was fatally shot by police.
Still, the inspiration for the event runs even deeper.

“When I became an adult, I started hearing people saying Black people don’t know how to swim,” said Fluellen.

“Election” author Tom Perotta on how the #MeToo movement made him want to revisit Tracy Flick, his most famous character thus far: “It did make me think about how I had written about Tracy; it nagged at me.” latimes.com/entertainment-…
In recent years, Perrotta has, like many people, experienced a new level of awareness about the often tragically blurred line between consent and abuse: “Since I wrote that, the paradigm shifted completely. There’s no way a girl of 15 could choose that.” latimes.com/entertainment-… Image
“Tracy Flick Can’t Win” is a sequel to “Election” that sends both Perrotta and Tracy back to high school. From its very first page, the novel takes a much harder look at the toxic male culture that was taken for granted in “Election.” latimes.com/entertainment-… Image

.@RepAdamSchiff: "Altogether, the five oil giants have amassed 300% more in profits this year than they did this time last year. This isn’t the result of the pandemic or the war. It’s just simple greed" latimes.com/opinion/story/… Image
