Top Exec Warns Hollywood: Industry Faces ‘Absolute Collapse’ Because of ‘Perfect Storm’

Media mogul Barry Diller has doomed Hollywood by warning that the entertainment industry is facing “absolute collapse” amid the multiple union strikes.

During an interview with CBS, Diller stated that, if the writers’ and actors’ strikes are not resolved soon, Hollywood may never recover.

Diller, who previously served as CEO for Paramount and 20th Century Fox, issued the warning amid the SAG-AFTRA and Writers Guild of America strikes.

According to Diller, the multiple strikes have emerged during a “perfect storm” that could spell doom for Hollywood.

“You had Covid, which sent people home to watch streaming television and killed theaters,” Diller explained.

“You’ve had the results of huge investments in streaming which have produced all these losses for all these companies that are now kind of retrenching.

“The one idea I had is to say, as a good faith measure, both the executives and the most-paid actors should take a 25 percent pay cut to try and narrow the difference between those who get highly paid and those that don’t.”

Diller added that there is “no trust between the parties” so he fears the worst.
