Study: Fe­male, mi­nor­ity di­rec­tors make gains

Yuma Sun - - DESSERT LIFE -

LOS AN­GE­LES — Women and mi­nor­ity tele­vi­sion di­rec­tors made mod­est gains last sea­son, but the over­whelm­ing ma­jor­ity of tele­vi­sion episodes are still di­rected by white men and women, the Di­rec­tors Guild of Amer­ica found in a study re­leased Tues­day.

The guild’s study states that 62 per­cent of nearly 4,500 tele­vi­sion episodes re­viewed dur­ing the 2016-2017 sea­son were di­rected by white men. When adding in white fe­male di­rec­tors, 78 per­cent of the tele­vi­sion episodes re­viewed were helmed by white di­rec­tors.
