Talking Talent

Monday, January 27, 2020
2:15 PM - 3:15 PM
Grand Ballroom A/B

Conventional wisdom within the industry states that having the right talent attached to a project on-screen and behind the scenes is of the utmost importance when it comes to giving your project a fighting chance. But with content platforms multiplying at a feverish rate, so too are the opportunities for talent, making exclusivity harder to negotiate and changing the game considerably. And talent can come from practically every corner of culture today, with influencers being the experts for a generation of content consumers. This session brings together execs from across the industry to examine the evolving role of talent in the unscripted content equation.
