Welcome to the 234th episode of TV top 5, The Hollywood Reporters TV podcast.
Every week, hosts Lesley Goudberg (West Coast TV Editor) and Daniel Fienberg (chief TV critic) provides an overview of the latest TV news with context from the business and critical sides, welcomes showrunners, executives and other guests and provides a critical guide to what to watch (or skip, as the case may be) ).
This week we return to the format with Headlines and discuss the latest news on the SAG-AFTRA strike, how streamers are saving shows made for other platforms, and much more. This is how the episode goes:
Melissa McBride, The crown And Welcome to Flatch lead the headlines of the week’s industry news.
