Development Executives: Business Meets Creative

Date: Friday, 6/10
Time: 12 PM
Venue: Amazon Stage at Trinity Hall

We’ve heard creators talk about (bemoan, complain, and at times, compliment) getting “notes” from the studio and network, but there’s not much known about who these phantom note givers are and what their role entails. Meet the Development Executives. These studio and network gurus will explain their role in the process of getting an episode from pilot script to production to ready for air. Hear their POV and goals, the factors viewers might never have considered, as they give us an inside look at creating shows from the “business” side of “show business.”

Panelists: Joanna Klein (The CW), Kathleen McCaffrey (HBO), Grant Gish (Fox), Bryan Seabury (CBS), Brendan Countee (Hulu)
Moderator: Lesley Goldberg (THR)
