(KOMO NEWS) – MTV Entertainment Group says it’s making a $250 million commitment to spur reality production over the next three years by companies owned and operated by women and people of color.

ViacomCBS’ MTV Entertainment, which includes MTV and VH1, will provide funding, staff and other support to foster new ideas that will “fuel the unscripted content needs” of now and in the future, according to an announcement Thursday.

Advocates of increasing diversity in the entertainment industry say progress requires more women and people of color in decision-making positions.
