Commentary, Community and Going Unscripted

Date: Friday, June 8

In an increasingly divided culture, these unscripted series are making the case that we’re more alike than we think. From food & travel, to the pervasive opioid crisis, to communities at odds, unscripted and docu-series storytellers are reaching beyond the politics of the moment to spread empathy by focusing on humanity rather than headlines. Join us for a conversation with the producers & creatives behind TV’s most compelling unscripted episodics to discuss the responsibility of truth in storytelling, and the challenge to find common ground in uncommon and often uncomfortable places.

Panelist: Phil Rosenthal (Somebody Feed Phil), Andrew Wang (Head of TV, JuVee Productions),  James Younger (EVP Factual Productions, Revelation)
Moderator: Emily Moss Wilson
