It’s no secret that many movie stars are finding more lucrative roles in the small screen. Many actors and actresses enjoy the luxury of working on their characters for a longer duration.

It doesn’t hurt that TV money pay well too. With streaming service platforms like Netflix, Apple TV, and Amazon (Disney + could possibly be a huge competition) on the rise, this trend is only going to increase by the numbers.

As Variety states, the arrival of major feature stars to TV series have kicked into high gear in recent years (e.g.: Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson in HBO’s “True Detective”). More than 500 scripted series have been beamed into our living rooms this year alone – a sign that this is the boom of the Peak TV era.


Every actor is available now,” an agent was quoted as saying. “They used to say, ‘No interest in TV.’ You can’t say that anymore. There are certain people who won’t do broadcast, and people who won’t do basic cable. But I wouldn’t even take someone like Leonardo DiCaprio off the table. Why wouldn’t Leo do an eight-episode limited series? It’s as good as a movie.”

Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon are earning more than $1 million USD an episode to star in Apple TV+’s “The Morning Show”. Other A-listers who are also making that much money include Nicole Kidman, Jeff Bridges, Kerry Washington, and more.
