What's the Deal with 'Seinfeld'?
Julia Alexander on Netflix's new (old) hit, why 'Hocus Pocus 2' was right to skip theaters, and more.
On this week’s episode, I’m rejoined by Julia Alexander of Parrot Analytics and Puck to talk about what’s working, and what’s flopping, in the wild world of streaming. Seinfeld is a huge hit for Netflix, particularly with younger audiences. What’s the deal with that? Meanwhile, Peacock made a smart call by adding the Hallmark Channel as a vertical, and Disney+ added a huge number of subs … while also dipping in revenue. Then, we discuss the massive hit that was Hocus Pocus 2 and ask if Disney was right to keep it streaming-exclusive. All this and more on an entertaining and informative episode of The Bulwark Goes to Hollywood. If you learned something, share it with a friend!
