WarnerMedia Programming Honored for Bringing Gender Parity to TV

15 Nov 2018 - By WarnerMedia Staff

It may be a man’s world, but that thinking may need to be reframed. 

Programs across the WarnerMedia portfolio were awarded 10 ReFrame Stamps for TV, a new initiative celebrating programming that reflects gender parity.

The award was created by ReFrame, a group of industry professionals from Women in Film and the Sundance Institute. Using data from IMDBPro, ReFrame recognized shows that hire females in key roles such as writing, directing, starring and producing. 

Of the 350 scripted television programs that were considered for the honor, only 62 were awarded the ReFrame Stamp for Television.

The inaugural round of recipients includes six winners from Turner, including three TBS shows, (Search Party, The Detour and The Last OG) two TNT originals (Animal Kingdom and Claws) and truTV’s I’m Sorry

HBO was honored for its new hit series Insecure, while Warner Brothers took home three ReFrame Stamps for the CW’s Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Jane the Virgin and Supergirl
