- Disney’s new streaming plan might save ESPN
By Staff and News Services - Wednesday Aug 9, 2017
Two years ago, Disney CEO Bob Iger acknowledged that ESPN, long a major profit center for Disney, was shedding subscribers.On Tuesday, Disney announced a plan intended to start bolstering ESPN’s fortunes.The service, to be delivered through the ESPN app, will offer baseball, hockey, soccer and tennis matches, as well as college sports.The service was started by Major League Baseball, which remains a minority owner, along with the National Hockey League.Over time, that could begin a spiral in which fewer subscribers mean less money for ESPN to use in bidding for sports rights; fewer games to air then would give more subscribers reason to quit.Optimists believe ESPN has the clout to strike better deals with cable and satellite-TV companies, in essence allowing it to raise prices and to enlist their help in signing up more households for its premium service.Wrestle Like A Girl Inc. and its partners announced that they have submitted a bid seeking emerging sport status from the NCAA.USA Wrestling, the U.S. Olympic Committee and other organizations hope to make women’s wrestling a collegiate sport as quickly as possible.For the men, St. Mary’s opens at home against Loyola Marymount, USF plays at San Diego and Santa Clara hosts Pepperdine.The Knicks hired Craig Robinson, former President Barack Obama’s brother-in-law, to be their vice president of player development.Dick MacPherson, who resurrected a declining Syracuse football program in the 1980s and restored it to national prominence before returning to the NFL, has died.
- Broad Green Reckoning: Hammond Brothers Refocus After Flops, Identity Crisis

The three-year old production and distribution company arrived to Hollywood in 2014, privately funded by billionaire Wall Street brothers Daniel and Gabriel Hammond with promises of A-list talent, prestige films, and salvation for the endangered mid-budget movie.In interviews, Gabriel, 38, took responsibility for a series of significant box office misfires like the recent Ryan Phillippe horror thriller “Wish Upon,” which cost $12 million and has earned $13 million in three weeks of wide release.Equally charming and hubristic, the Hammonds chased pedigreed executives early on like Travis Reid, the former CEO of Loews Cineplex Entertainment, to run distribution (later replaced by another vet, Richie Fay); Ice Cube collaborator and former Relativity Media creative exec Matt Alvarez as President of Production; and the well-liked Warner Bros. publicity veteran Adam Keen.A promising relationship with elusive director Terrence Malick led to starry ensemble dramas that underperformed, like Rooney Mara and Ryan Gosling’s “Song to Song” which had a reported $3 million budget and earned around $440,000 in limited release.To address the failures and loss of momentum, Broad Green pivoted to wider-audience fare like “Wish Upon,” a Black List script about an evil box that grants the wishes of a teenaged girl, and a collegiate dance troupe comedy called “Step Sisters.”Jeff Skoll launched Participant Media with similar heat in 2004, and has also struggled with their movie business and various add-ons like a TV network and a social justice website.
