‘SURVIVOR’, ‘BIG BROTHER’ & MORE CBS SERIES TO DIVERSIFY CASTS TO INCLUDE 50% BLACK, INDIGENOUS & PEOPLE OF COLOR

They say “don’t talk about it, be about it,” and that’s exactly what CBS intends to do! After years of backlash for their lack of diversity and outcries for racial equality amid the George Floyd protests, the network commits to casting 50% of black, indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC). This change will start with the 2021-2022 broadcast season for cult classics like Survivor, Big Brother, and more.

 

“The reality TV genre is an area that’s especially underrepresented, and needs to be more inclusive across development, casting, production and all phases of storytelling,” said George Cheeks, CEO of CBS Entertainment Group.

In addition to expanding diversity, CBS announced back in July that they will allocate 25% of its annual unscripted budget to BIPOC creators and producers.
