Doc Talk: Who Wants What?

Tuesday, January 24, 2017
2:30 PM - 3:30 PM
SALON IJK


With the huge buzz surrounding such documentaries as Making a Murderer or Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief, you might think that the only doc projects sought after by networks are true crime thrillers or exposes. But the wish list for buyers, thankfully, is a little more varied. Here, you'll hear from programming execs from some of the top doc-friendly nets about what they want, what they're not seeing in pitches that they wish they were, what they're seeing too much of, and what will make your project the right fit for them.
