cbs-logo-oldCBS’ slate of reality shows is set to become more diverse after the network introduced a series of representation targets.

The network has introduced an edict that 50% of its casts for its unscripted shows must be Black, Indigenous or People of Color (BIPOC) and it has committed that at least 25% of its annual unscripted development budget must go towards creators and producers that are BIPOC.

This follows hard targets introduced for its scripted programs earlier this summer and a deal to create programming with the NAACP.

The unscripted targets, similar to its scripted quotas, will kick in for the 2021-22 broadcast season. The network added that it will develop future initiatives with its production partners to expand diversity in all of the creative and production teams involved in making an unscripted series.
