Has anyone else noticed almost every streaming service seems to ignore, bury or obscure tv and film Writers on their title pages and search?
Not shocking that only Spike’s name gets any meaningful search results… Sorry Charlie. https://t.co/F2ftEwNGWE
Same deal with films. https://t.co/2kU0bEbaxF
Unless you’re willing to look under the details section where the Creator and some of the cast is listed… https://t.co/Uppkbazl0G
I wish I could say the same for their films… https://t.co/rFuI1nBF0k
While many of the Writers are also Executive Producers, neither the word Writer or Creator is anywhere to be found. https://t.co/75pYzHGc2k
Their films do make sure to feature the Director though… https://t.co/iXUYQlj1gR
And then if you look really carefully, you might find the Writers at the very end of a long scroll. https://t.co/aThU5f2cnf
Now before you lose all hope, @HBOMax actually goes out of their way to include not only the Writer/Creator, but also the Writer of every episode in a series. If they can do it, I don’t see why the other streamers can’t follow the same model. https://t.co/A3A8EmZt17
Of course, writers are still listed in the end credits and/or opening titles, but why not include them on the title page? Why not let people search by writer?
Whatever the reasons might be… It’s not too late to give a proper credit where the credit is due.
