Business Class originates in Los Angeles, the home of the entertainment industry. In this episode, we look at how Covid-19 has brought the entire industry to a standstill. Movie theaters are empty, studios are cloesd, the few TV commercials being filmed are done so in isolation via Zoom and iPhones. Devin Mann, Founder of Iconic Talent Agency of Beverly Hills, takes us inside the pandemic effects on entertainment production. What happens when a workforce that is based on creativity is told to go home and stay there? Do movie theaters come back? Does this signal a shift in how the world is entertained? It’s clear that no one really knows how this particular movie is going to end.

To maintain social distancing, this interview was recorded via the web.
