CBS units new variety pointers for survivors, huge brothers, and extra
CBS is taking some steps in a more diverse direction.
The network announced on Monday that all of its reality shows will be made up of at least 50 percent black indigenous people (BIPOC) from the 2021-2022 programming seasons. These include Survivor, Big Brother, Love Island, and The Amazing Race. CBS also devoted a quarter of its annual scriptless budget to projects created by BIPOC makers.
Survivor has dealt with its fair share of problems for the past several years. Season 39 marked the first time a player was removed from the game due to issues with harassment and unwanted touch, which led the network to make changes behind the scenes. In June, attendees and spectators came together with a petition calling for more diversity both in front of and behind the cameras.
Big Brother also has some racing controversies and issues to deal with, occasionally seen on-screen by the players themselves, as Da & # 39; Vonne Rogers did on season 22nd.
In September, however, the second season of the US version of Love Island, which also airs on CBS, crowned the franchise's first black winners.
