Under Pressure: The State of the Unscripted Nation
Monday, January 23, 2017
5:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Recent developments and controversies within the unscripted industry over the past few years have magnified the producer/network relationship, and put various business practices - and strains - under the microscope.
Falling ratings, squeezed margins and tensions over show ownership produce pressures on both sides, with all parties looking for ways to stay profitable in a precarious, uncertain climate driven by major shifts in media. This important session will bring together stakeholders from various sectors of the industry, with an aim towards articulating and understanding the challenges as they exist now, and for the immediate future, as well as potential ways to find "win/win" scenarios for all concerned.
