CBS reality series “The Activist” is being reworked following backlash over its format. Originally conceived as a five-week competition series that had activists vying for social media attention for causes, with their efforts judged by celebrities, the show is being transformed into a documentary special. “’The Activist’ was designed to show a wide audience the passion, long hours, and ingenuity that activists put into changing the world, hopefully inspiring others to do the same,” said a statement from CBS, Global Citizen and Live Nation. “However, it has become apparent the format of the show as announced distracts from the vital work these incredible activists do in their communities every day. The push for global change is not a competition and requires a global effort.” The planned October 22 debut date has been postponed.

Soviet chess legend Nona Gaprindashvili is suing Netflix for $5 million over a line in the finale of “The Queen’s Gambit” that says she never competed against men. “Throughout her extraordinary career, she won many championships, beat some of the best male chess players in the world, and was the first woman in history to achieve the status of international chess grandmaster among men,” says the defamation suit, labeling the line “grossly sexist and belittling.” In response, Netflix said it “has only the utmost respect for Ms. Gaprindashvili and her illustrious career, but we believe this claim has no merit and will vigorously defend the case.”
