For those who might think that it in 2013 it was business as usual in the unscripted/non-fiction television world, let’s recap: millions watched on TV and online as a dude jumped out of a capsule hovering 24 miles above the earth; social media buzz about a program featuring a prehistoric mega-shark practically broke the Internet; and a few fellows with big, big beards (no, not ZZ Top) are now the stars of the biggest non-fiction series on cable to date. And that’s all just the tip of the iceberg. This session brings together top network execs and producers to discuss and dissect the top trends in unscripted/non-fiction content as well as offer some insight into what might be in store for the year ahead. And in the spirit of the interactive age, delegates will be able to email or Tweet questions, comments and observations to our illustrious panel and add their voices (or up to 140 well-chosen characters) to the conversation.
