The showbiz industry is massive. A very conservative estimate of the number of films alone that come out of Hollywood each year nears 550-600. Add to it the 1000’s of Television shows and direct to TV films being made, it is an industry that adds 100’s of Billions of dollar to the economy each year. Along with the revenue, it employs 1000’s if not millions of people (Directly or indirectly) around the US and the rest of the world. Hollywood is just one cog in the worldwide showbiz industry though, and if you take into account all the work being done in the film & TV industry worldwide, you get numbers that boggle the mind.
Pertinent information with regards to the exact nature and current happenings of the showbiz industry are hard to find. With so much work being done out there, it is not easy to find required information about the films being made or in the pipeline, TV shows under production, and other important occurrences in the showbiz world all in one place.

Only if such people knew about the possible opportunities that existed in different aspects of the entertainment industry, they would be able to at least get a chance to apply to production currently taking place and slowly but surely work their way to the top.
