Latinx representation is still “largely” lacking on TV.

Nov 02 2021

Latinx representation is still “largely” lacking on TV. People who identify as Hispanic or Latinx make up 18.5% of the U.S. population, and YPulse’s Representation in Action trend research found that 72% of 13-39-year-old Hispanic consumers wish they saw more people of their race in TV shows / movies. But according to a new report from UCLA, the demographic’s reality “is not being reflected” on the small screens. The report analyzed key job categories, ratings, and social engagement scores for 461 scripted series across 50 TV providers—and shows the share of total cast roles in TV from 2019 to 2020 for Latinx actors stood at only 6.3% for broadcast, 5.7% for cable, and 5.5% for digital. While TV content from diverse writers’ rooms and / or diverse casts resonated with audiences during the pandemic, Latinx actors, directors, and writers still “remain largely shunned” by the industry. However, the report’s major takeaways show that “appetite for diverse content showcased a significant amount of gains for TV representation for people of color as a whole, though there is still plenty of room for improvement in terms of reflecting the makeup of America.” (Variety)
