The woke corporation Disney has begun layoffs focused across television production and acquisitions as the company’s freefall in the marketplace continues.
“Among the notable staffers let go Monday are Jayne Bieber, senior vp production at Freeform/Onyx Collective; Mark Levenstein, head of production and postproduction at Hulu; and Elizabeth Newman, head of Disney’s acquisitions department,” noted The Hollywood Reporter (THR).
“Sources note Newman’s entire acquisitions team has been dissolved, while Bieber and Levenstein’s production teams will be folded under Carol Turner, exec VP production at ABC Signature,” THR added.
Disney did not reveal the full extent of Monday’s layoffs or the exact impact it will have on day-to-day operations at the company. The TV side appears to be taking the hardest hit right with more layoffs slated for later this week.
