It’s All So Dramatic: evolution of the tv drama

Saturday 6/7, 2:30pm
Stephen F. Austin Hotel

The serialized drama has evolved drastically in the past thirty years. Leading characters have shifted from heroes to anti-heroes, and stories have moved from clear good vs. evil to murky immorality that leaves audiences unsure whom they should root for. Today’s leading drama producers and writers discuss current trends in their genre, including: the expansion to dark and depraved worlds, advantages (or challenges) that come with network or cable (or online), viewing habits of audiences, and if any of these factors have an impact on how they choose to tell their story.

Panelists: Liz Tigelaar, Mark Johnson, Bryan Seabury (VP of Drama Development at CBS), David Madden (President of Fox TV Studios) more TBA
Moderator:Todd VanDerWerff
