I have counted seventy Hollywood actors, most of them A-Listers, who have switched from films to television. The studios are reducing the number of movies. Meanwhile, 48 television networks are offering scripted episodic dramas series. The only people outside the industry who can keep track of the number of shows are journalists on the TV beat.
Television is where the storytelling is and television is where the job security is. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s only a matter of time before the likes of Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts join the party.
