CBS introduced targets to ensure its reality shows are more diverse. Starting with the 2021-22 broadcast season, 50% of casts for unscripted shows must be Black, Indigenous or People of Color, and at least 25% of its annual unscripted development budget must go to creators and producers that are BIPOC. “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, President and CEO of the CBS Entertainment Group. “As we strive to improve all of these creative aspects, the commitments announced today are important first steps in sourcing new voices to create content and further expanding the diversity in our unscripted programming, as well as on our Network.”
