In its annual report on the ethnic and gender diversity of the television industry, the Directors Guild of America in November identified Twentieth Century Fox Television as the industry leader in hiring diverse voices behind the camera. The DGA Episodic TV Director Diversity Report found that women and minorities helmed 45 percent of the studio’s 553 episodes of television produced during the 2016-2017 season, including episodes of shows such as “Empire,” “The Americans,” “This Is Us” and many more.
“I have to credit the Current team who feel personally responsible for giving more opportunities to female and diverse directors,” said Carolyn Cassidy, SVP and Head of Current Programming at TCFTV, about the report. “We’re always looking for new voices behind the camera. With the help of our production department, we educate ourselves on new diverse and female directors and aim to integrate them into the pipeline at 20th. Some of our finds this season have really elevated episodes of ‘Empire,’ ‘The Exorcist’ and ‘Fresh Off the Boat,’ to name a few. Giving these directors more chances to succeed with us is a real priority.”
