The Most Trusted Data Source Since 1999

Variety Insight is the preferred development, production & staffing tool used by showrunners, creators, producers, agents and executives. See what our clients are saying...

  • "Variety Insight's information regarding writers is incredibly useful to me and my production team at Osprey Productions when staffing up a new series. It is user friendly and intuitive, which I appreciate."


    Author image Josh Berman
    Creator, Showrunner, Writer (Drop Dead Diva - Lifetime, CSI - CBS, Bones - FOX, Notorious - ABC, The Blacklist - NBC, Vanished - FOX)
  • "Invaluable. It's the only way to keep track of what's actually happening in the industry. One of the most useful tools when building a production."


    Author image David Jenkins
    Creator, Showrunner, Writer (Our Flag Means Death - HBOMax, People of Earth - TBS)
  • "I am consistently impressed at how Variety insight stays on top of the TV and streaming business. As soon a network or streamer begins developing a new project, Variety Insight, knows everything there is to know about it. It must be witchcraft!"


    Author image Marshall Persinger
    Producer, Showrunner (The Good Lord Bird - Showtime, The Alienist - TNT, Rectify - SundanceTV, Army Wives - Lifetime)
  • "Variety Insight is the Bloomberg of the Entertainment Industry! They are the-must-have resource for any producer working in TV & film."


    Author image Glenn Geller
    President, Howard Gordon / Alex Gansa Company
  • "Variety Insight is an incredible database to have at your fingertips -- it's the GPS you always wanted for Hollywood itself. It's a pretty great way to orient yourself in this dizzying business, and -- just as critical for a writer-producer -- it's a great way to procrastinate as well."


    Author image Eli Attie
    Co-Executive Producer, Writer (BILLIONS - Showtime, ROSEWOOD - FOX, HOUSE - FOX)
  • "As a company that cares deeply about diversity, equity, and inclusion, we applaud the work that Variety Business Intelligence has done to create a more inclusive data platform,” said André Vargas, Head of Data at CAA. “This data will be used to help the industry better reflect the stories, contributions and work of underrepresented communities and will capture important metrics that have been overlooked across entertainment for far too long."


    Author image André Vargas
    Chief Data Officer, CAA
  • "At a time when the representation of diverse experiences, cultures, and voices in entertainment matter more than ever, it is vital to find reliable information on the diversity of talent with accuracy and nuance. Tools like Variety Insight are critical in the push towards more equitable opportunities for underrepresented communities."


    Author image Kamala Avila-Salmon
    Head of Inclusive Content, Lionsgate
  • "As the landscape of equity and inclusion broadens across categories, leveraging Variety Insight's recently enhanced DEI data which includes not only expanded options for ethnicity and countries of heritage, but also gender and LGBTQ+ identities is a valuable resource. WarnerMedia looks forward to continued partnership with VBI to be on the forefront of supporting the push towards equitable opportunities for underrepresented communities."
