A Network’s Identity: Brave New World or Business As Usual

Date: TBA
Time: TBA
Venue: TBA

With each passing year, more TV networks are dipping their toes into original programming, new streaming services are rapidly sprouting up, and out-of-nowhere smash hits are appearing in the most unlikely of places. As the landscape becomes unpredictable and malleable, each network is grappling to find its own place on the spectrum — do they chase the success/format of other networks’ breakout hits (This is Us, The Walking Dead, Empire, Stranger Things), dig their heels in and produce content similar to their tried-and-true mainstays, or take the risk of gambling on unseasoned prospects/talent (Girls, Insecure, Atlanta)? The top executives of these major networks gather to discuss their respective programming ethos’ and how their competition’s successes/failures inform the direction they lead their networks.

Panelists: Kathleen McCaffrey (HBO), Nick Hall (Amazon)
Moderator: TBA
