“Are you hooked on success? Here it is, the real thing.” – Hollywood Reporter.
“Jaw-dropping… an epic story of poisonous wealth and greed filled with liars and cheats.” Editor’s Choice, The New York Times Book Review
The shocking inside story of the struggle for power and control at Paramount Global, the multibillion-dollar entertainment empire controlled by the Redstone family, and the dysfunction, misconduct, and deceit that threatened the company’s future, as told by the Pulitzer Prize–winning journalists who first broke the news.
In 2016, the future of Paramount Global, the multibillion-dollar entertainment empire that includes Paramount, CBS, MTV, Nickelodeon, Showtime, and Simon & Schuster, was in doubt. Sumner M. Redstone, the company’s founder and head at age 93, was being sued by a former lover, Manuela Herzer, in a very public case. This case showed how Sumner’s health was getting worse and how he might not be making good decisions.
Sumner was among the last of a long line of all-powerful media moguls. He was a very demanding boss and an even more demanding father. When his daughter Shari took over her father’s business, boards and management were against her because they had heard Sumner talk badly about her for years. Les Moonves, the well-known CEO of CBS, felt especially threatened, so he and his friends on the board made plans to take Shari’s power away. But while he was fighting Shari in public, word got out that Moonves had done sexually inappropriate things more than once, and he started working behind the scenes to try to make the stories go away.
Unscripted is an explosive and honest look at the inner workings of two public companies, their boards of directors, and a wealthy, dysfunctional family going through big changes. It was written by James B. Stewart and Rachel Abrams, who both won Pulitzer Prizes for their work. Through the microcosm of Paramount, whose once-successful business model of cable fees and ticket sales is crumbling under the attack of technological advances and whose work is going through radical changes because of #MeToo, Black Lives Matter, and a dislike for the old guard, Stewart, and Abrams show the battle for power at any cost—and the bloodshed that followed.
