In episode 4 of TellyCast Pluto TV’s MD of Europe Olivier Jollet & C21Media’s Editor in Chief and Co Founder David Jenkinson join host and founder of Boom! PR Justin Crosby to discuss Quibi’s stuttering launch, MIPCOM, the return of unscripted and home made TV. And we’ll find out who their Heroes of the Week are – and who they’ll be telling to Get in the Bin! (It’s getting political…)

Deadline’s Peter White joins us from Hollywood to give us the LA lowdown on this week’s biggest TV industry news.

And our research partner K7 Media’s Girts Licis gives us the analyst’s view on confidence boosting programming.
