Television in a Trumped Up America

Date: Friday, 6/9

After an election that resulted in riveting and addictive TV-viewing, much of the world has come out the other side feeling a spectrum of emotions: from fear to anger to confusion and perhaps, motivation. We’re often faced during this time of change with the question, “Where do we go from here?” Join creatives as they discuss approaching their art as both an outlet and a tool, how (or if) they plan to write for fans that might not agree with them, and where the responsibility of an artist lies in a divided world.

Panelists: Liz Tigelaar (Casual), Javier Grillo-Marxuach (The Middleman), Paul Garnes (Queen Sugar), Michael Rauch (Royal Pains), Julie Plec (The Vampire Diaries), Beau Willimon (The First)
Moderator: Michael Schneider (IndieWire)
