There have been many changes at Facebook recently.
Head of development and programming at Meta, Mina Lefevre, has left the company amid layoffs that affected more than 20,000 employees.
The company has already scaled back its original programming efforts since the era of scripted series such as Elizabeth Olsen-fronted Sorry For Your Loss and Sacred Lies.
Meta is following Google, whose YouTube division was shut down.
The focus for these companies is now user-generated content.

Martin revealed last year that he was confident that another movie would materialise after the success of ‘Bad Boys for Life’ – which became the franchise’s highest-grossing film when it was released.

The original ‘Bad Boys’ film was released way back in 1995 and Lawrence felt that the project had a transformative impact on his career.
