To bring kids to safety, download this map

We’ve been asked by some Smokefree Movies partners to explain who owns whom in the TV and film these days. At first, it seems confusing because the same names keep popping up all over the media landscape.

But if you think about it, that actually makes our behavior-change project easier. In the end, we’re only talking about a dozen large companies that dominate the scene. They could solve the problem tomorrow.

Onbeyond's Jono Polansky has prepared a short report that names the major players and sums up the US film and TV business trends that are shaping public health prospects around the world. To bring kids to safety, we need a map. It's all here:

• The famous studios that control the ratings...

• The media conglomerates that control the studios...

• The production companies waiting for green lights... 

• The new streaming companies disrupting the scene...

• And how tobacco is crossing over from film to TV
