Hollywood Changes to Play Along with The Economy

Hollywood Changes to Play Along With the Economy

As Wall Street tumbles, Hollywood stumbles to rewrite scripts that feature Wall Street as it used to be. That's not to say that every film or made-for-TV-movie will be a depressing commentary on current events, but investment bankers may need career changes and relocation from Wall Street. While Gossip Girl won't change a thing about its Upper East Siders, other shows are tweaking some details.

Some story lines are appealing to the public with Average Joe type characters and producers are coming up with series geared toward a budget-minded audience. Others are choosing to create stories that offer viewers a sense of escape and we can expect to see new attempts at fantasy world settings on the big screen.
In the past, troubled financial times have given way to feel good entertainment like smiley Shirley Temple, lavish film musicals ("The Wizard of Oz") and comedies where we see the upper class as "lovable fools."
Nicole Clemens of International Creative Management explains, “In bad times especially, people do not want to see on the screen what they’re living through."

i can understand why they are doing this but a lot of people go to the movies or watch tv to escape reality - so i don't know if it really makes that big of a difference.
