While SEC commissioners were too busy to notice the subpoena sent to journalists recently, commissioner Cynthia Glassman isn’t too busy to hang out with Hollywood. As nutty as it might seem, she is trying to convince sitcom writers to incorporate stock-talk into sitcoms.
Glassman said she envisioned a story line on a show such as the canceled NBC
sitcom “Friends,” in which the character Joey is befuddled by his 401k account
and asks Monica and Chandler for help.
Me-thinks a little more focus at the SEC on things that actually matter would be more useful than fantasizing about regulatory product placement in a canceled sitcom.
