Y The Last Man, Willow Among 30 Titles Pulled From Disney+, Hulu  

As expected, Disney is following Warner Bros. Discovery and removing under-performing titles from its streaming services in a bid to write-off nearly $2 billion from its bottom line.

Scripted titles set to be removed from Hulu and Disney+ include FX’s Y: The Last Man, Pistol, Little Demon, Hulu-turned-Disney+ series Mysterious Benedict Society, Disney+’s Big Shot, Willow, ABC-turned-Hulu comedy Maggie as well as National Geographic’s The World According to Jeff Goldblum. In all there are nearly 30 shows that will be removed starting next week from the platforms in this first round of reductions.

Disney CFO Christine McCarthy revealed last week on Disney’s earnings call that the company would be reviewing the TV series and films on its various platforms and planned to remove “certain content from streaming platforms.” McCarthy noted that Disney expects to take an impairment charge of between $1.5 billion-$1.8 billion on the content it removes.

The Disney content removal follows a similar move by David Zaslav’s Warner Bros. Discovery, which yanked titles from HBO Max including Westworld, The Nevers, Generation, FBoy Island, Legendary, The Time Traveler’s Wife, The Gordita Chronicles, Raised by Wolves and more in a bid to stop paying for under-performing library titles. The company instead licensed many of those same shows to Roku and Tubi in a series of licensing deals that helped to further monetize the programming that failed to live up to original expectations.
