Directors Guild TV study shows diversity gains during pandemic, but not for Latino, Asian filmmakers

May 5, 2022 | Per The LA Times:

A new study by the Directors Guild of America showed gains in diversity behind the camera on TV shows during the pandemic, but little change for Latino and Asian directors who remain underrepresented.

Even as the number of shows fell 36% to 2,691 in the 2020-2021 season from the year before, the number of TV episodes led by directors of color increased by 5% to 34%, up from 29% the prior season, according to the union’s report released Thursday.

Black directors represented 18% of episodes, up from 15% the season prior.
