It’s also a jump from the 376 scripted shows airing last year. “This was the third consecutive year that scripted series count has grown across each distribution platform—broadcast, basic and pay cable, streaming—led by significant gains in basic cable and digital services,” says FX research chief Julie Piepenkotter. “This statistic is staggering and almost unimaginable from where they were a decade ago.”
