In order to comply with the newest regulations that prohibit any type of non-essential business from operating and the gathering of people, programs such as ‘The Ellen Show’ has opted to host their shows from home. But this shutdown and a new way of doing things have not sat well with Ellen’s crews.
In order to help her home-broadcast, she has hired a tech company that is not part of the union, Key Code Media. The team has helped her work from her home in California and actually received proper pays.
This was revealed by two of Ellen’s crews who chose to remain anonymous while speaking to Variety. “Higher-ups in production would occasionally answer phone calls but reveal little” to the crews. Yet, Ellen has been said to receive a $87.5million pay per annual contract and her net worth is estimated to be above $490million.
