  • Crime Pays... And Plays

    When it comes to programming about people doing very, very bad things, the numbers can be very, very good. Cable channels dealing in crime programming are citing incredible growth, and the content, much like a fugitive who also happens to be a master of disguise, can travel exceptionally well across borders. Here, producers, programmers and distributors of top factual crime programming will investigate why it's working, who's watching, and what elevates a non-fiction crime show to "Most Wanted" status.

In a session that could be subtitled "How I Learned to Love Disruption", top level executives will weigh in on how the major disruptors impacting the unscripted industry (and beyond) are shaping their strategies, and debate and discuss the new visions that will innovate and invigorate the content industry.

Thus, the development process has evolved, with new players, and new responsibilities and requirements for those involved. In this session, you'll hear from producers, network execs, casting companies and others who are in the trenches, digging for - and developing - unscripted gold, and learn how they're doing it.

    Registration is now open for the 17th edition of the Realscreen Summit in Washington DC, taking place January 27-30, 2015. The Realscreen Summit is the world's foremost conference and market for the non-fiction and unscripted content industry, and the place to get deals done. The event has experienced significant growth over the last few years and will attract in the order of 2,500 buyers, creators, and distributors of factual content from all corners of the globe.

In addition to providing you with inspiring, relevant content, every effort is in place to allow for ample time to take meetings and take advantage of unprecedented networking opportunities.

    Well over 200 global commissioning editors running the gamut of non-fiction content will be in attendance and delegates are afforded unique opportunities to pitch their program ideas, industry services and negotiate coproductions.

    We will be returning once again to the Washington Hilton, which has been secured in its entirety for use exclusively by delegates of the Realscreen Summit. Only those people who have registered for the benefits that go along with the conference will be able to enjoy them, and anyone who is not registered to attend will be denied access.

    This also means that there are plenty of rooms available to our delegates at our preferred rate. There will be more to follow on the rates and room block in the coming weeks.

    Stay tuned for more info next week, including the announcement of the 2015 advisory board!
