The Business of Too Much TV

The television industry is experiencing unprecedented growth in production as studios (especially SVOD services such as Netflix) scramble to create more and more original content. The number of scripted shows has nearly doubled from 200 in 2009 to over 400 last year. Vulture interviewed writers, producers, actors, directors, executives, agents and more about how "Peak TV" is shaping the television industry. Read more here.
