In this week’s edition of our Deadline podcast TV Talk, we try to break down the seismic changes hitting the TV industry in light of the coronavirus pandemic. We ask the question: How much of this virtual programming that has become the new normal is really content, or just filler until we get back (hopefully) to the way it was? Will anything ever be the same again?

We also discuss the state of TV sports and how it might be permanently affected, along with the impact of ESPN’s Michael Jordan docuseries The Last Dance, and why this was the perfect time for it – planned or not. There is also much more on our minds this week including more Emmy talk and some of my recent The Actor’s Side interview with Elisabeth Moss, the star of The Handmaid’s Tale and The Invisible Man.
