A Hot Set Covers People of Color In Entertainment
Launching on July 1, 2019, A Hot Set is the authoritative source for news and commentary in the entertainment industry targeting people of color. Keeping its readers informed and up-to-date on the latest development across film, television, and online media.
Nielsen reports that people of color represented more than 50% of frequent moviegoers in 2018 and 61% of all ticket sales within that same year. Making that the strongest showing for people of color in history.
With the increase in diversity on the small screen, regarding television viewing habits, Nielsen also reports that people of color watched a combined over 434 hours of TV in 2018.
The increase in diversity within the entertainment industry has had an effect on Broadway. With the Asian American Performers Action Coalition's reporting that for the 2016-2017 season 29% of all roles on New York stages going to people of color.
Regarding independent media, people of color have gained popularity, building unique audiences and garnering millions of views through targeted content. And increasingly this has led to major deals with film and television production companies to create original content on a broader scale. With Issa Rae's The Awkward Black Girl series on YouTube translating into a development deal with HBO in 2013 and the release of the widely praised dramedy Insecure in 2016. Most recently, popular comedic YouTuber Lilly Singh has parlayed success into A Little Late with Lilly Singh a talk show that will debut in September.
Thus, with the ever-evolving times, the entertainment industry has noticed a correlating increase in revenue when expanding the people of color presence both in front and behind the screen. That success continues as more films, television series, and overall content feature people of color continue to expand the potential revenue generating market. A Hot Set delves into this phenomenon through its continuing coverage of people of color within the entertainment industry.
