Just days after Paramount announced it was removing a handful of projects from its schedule Paramount+ More shows will be discontinued on the streaming platform.
Which shows will be acquired by Paramount+?
A recent report by meeting The notes “Inside Amy Schumer”, “From Cradle to Stage” (a documentary based on Dave Grohl’s mother’s book “Tell Me a Story”) and “Ghislaine: Partners in Crime” (a documentary about Ghislaine Maxwell who partner of Jeffrey Epstein) were all taken from the streaming service as of Tuesday. The films Fantasy Football and Snow Day were also removed.
Alongside these projects, numerous other Nickelodeon programs have also been pulled from the streaming service. These include All In With Cam Newton, Allegra’s Window, Becca’s Bunch, Bella and the Bulldogs, Crashletes, Digby Dragon, The Fresh Beat Band, The Halo Effect, Legendary Dudas, Monsters vs. Aliens, Mutt & Stuff, Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn, Peter Rabbit, Pig Goat Banana Cricket and Ride and The Troop.
While the exact reasons behind this recent content cut are unclear, it’s likely that tax write-offs played a role.
Last week, Paramount completely removed Grease: Rise of the Pink Ladies, Star Trek: Prodigy, Queen of the Universe, and The Game from the platform to save money.
In a comment on this THRthe company said it was removing underperforming projects from its streaming services for tax reasons, so this trend is likely to continue.
“In the unified Paramount+ with Showtime schedule, Showtime’s portfolio of quirky, critically acclaimed programming will complement the broad and well-loved Paramount+ library in a seamless offering that engages everyone, enables more discoveries between brands and increases overall viewership,” said a Paramount+ spokesman. “As we prepare to combine Paramount+ and Showtime later this month in the US, we are refining our content offering to provide subscribers with the best streaming experience.
