Tudum Writers Cruelly Laid Off by Netflix Speak Out: ‘I Felt Like Adam Scott in ‘Severance’’ squib
When asked what the work environment was like at Tudum, the editorial operation Netflix gutted with layoffs just months after its creation, a former employee compared it to to a chilling series from another streaming service.
“It’s a super weird, positive environment,” the freshly laid-off staffer told The Daily Beast. “I felt like Adam Scott in Severance.”
On Thursday, Netflix cut at least 10 former staff members (full-time and contractors) just months after aggressively courting them to create Tudum. In addition to getting unceremoniously laid off, the workers are set to receive only a pitiful two weeks’ severance.
