You'll hear directly from the visionaries behind it all - from concept genesis to predictions for the future of streaming platforms; their strategies for acquisitions and development of new original content; and how the revolution is providing unprecedented opportunities for both established and emerging talent.
What's different about storytelling for the progressive, risk-taking networks who are delivering provocative, groundbreaking, binge-worthy content, without the restraints of the traditional, advertiser-supported programming model. Through interviews with the showrunners, content creators, and producers of dozens of trailblazing series - including Orange Is the New Black, House of Cards, Transparent, and many more - you'll learn how and why the best and the brightest TV content creators and filmmakers are defining the new digital entertainment age - and how you can, too.
