The strike underscores that Latinos, who make up 19% of the U.S. population,
are already severely underrepresented not just as writers but in all roles in Hollywood.
U.S. Latino representation in Hollywood went down for the last quarter of 2022 to 2019 levels.
Only 2.6% of lead actors in shows, 1.4% of showrunners, and 1.5% of directors were Latino in 2022, according to the Latino Data Collaborative Think Tank.
The think tank is the research branch of the Latino Donor Collaborative (LDC) and they released the 2022 Full-Year LDC U.S. Latinos in Media Report this month.
