‘Marco Polo’ Creator: Netflix Series “Breaking Barriers” On Diversity – Guest Column

Editors note: While diversity in casting is increasingly front and center, there’s evidence of a reward in greater viewership. Take Netflix’s Marco Polo, the John Fusco-created historical drama that just bowed its Season 2. Netflix doesn’t provide ratings figures, but its makers cite Parrot Analytics which places Marco Polo as currently the second-most-watched original digital series behind another diverse Netflix show (Orange Is The New Black) and the 10th-most-watched se…
