    Just wanted to have a discussion regarding these actors and their pay per-episode for upcoming shows. Some numbers are surprising and some aren’t. What are your thoughts?

    Pay Per Episode:

    1. Chris Pratt (The Terminal List) – $1.4 million [Amazon]
    2. Jeff Bridges (The Old Man) – $1 million [Hulu]
    3. Bryan Cranston (Your Honour) – $750k [Showtime]
    4. Sarah Jessica Parker (And Just Like That) – $650k-$750k [HBO Max]
    4. Cynthia Nixon (And Just Like That) – $650k-$750k [HBO Max]
    4. Kristin Davis (And Just Like That) – $650k-$750k [HBO Max]
    7. Kate Winslet (Mare of Easttown) – $650k [HBO Max]

    Not an accident a lot of those are limited or intended to be limited.

    I thought they said that Sex and the city ladies were getting a million per episode.

    Do limited TV shows pay more?

    If your a big enough star then yeah, take Cranston or Winslet for example, their total up front pay for their projects would be $7.5m and $4.5m. That’s roughly what they would expect for a mid-budget studio project.

    Network and continuing shows usually start off with a lower salary and then ups of next season is a success. For example, Angela Bassett got $50k for episode for 911 S1 on FOX, for the current fifth season, she’s getting $450k per episode.

    Bassett got $50k for season 1? That seems disgracefully low considering she is THE Angela Bassett and was fresh off a run on AHS and was part of the Murphy fold.

    Witherspoon and Aniston are reportedly earning more than $2m per episode of “The Morning Show”, the highest per episode salary in TV history. As they should.

    I imagine Julia Roberts will be part of the $1m club with “Gaslit”.

    Interesting that Nixon and Davis are earning the same as Parker. SJP is the very clear lead of that franchise, unless “And Just Like That…” takes a new approach.

    Wow, I didn’t know about that before. Chris Pratt is my favorite Hollywood actor and I love all of his movies. I have seen The Ant-man 10 times only because of Chris Pratt. He is so cute and very handsome. Right now, I am writing an essay and because of this, I was searching for a site online in which I can read essay examples and found this https://writinguniverse.com/free-essay-examples/philosophical-concepts/ link. When I was searching for it online, by mistake I clicked on your post and after reading Chris Pratt’s name, I can’t stop myself from reading all topics. I really don’t know that before that he takes $1.4 million. Thanks for the info.

    After 23 years on Law & Order SVU, I am wondering what Mariska Hargitay’s salary would be. I assume they would give her a raise every year. In my opinion the show needs her to continue.

    Her 2014 salary was $500k per episode for $11m per season. Not sure what it is now.

    The four main Conners actors make over $400,000 an episode plus a percentage of the back end.

    Where did you get the information that Angela Bassett only got 50k for 9-1-1..I found that Hard to believe…
