Disney+: A Closer Look

Wednesday, January 29, 2020
10:45 AM - 11:45 AM
Grand Ballroom A/B

The launch of Disney+ in November 2019 was met with fervent anticipation from fans and the global entertainment industry. From being the most-Googled term of the year, to the explosion of “Baby Yoda” memes, interest in the platform and its content remains at fever pitch. This session brings together the head of Disney+ Unscripted Originals and top creative talent working with the service to illustrate the range of content under its umbrella — from high-end documentaries and docuseries to epic formats, profile and portrait series, and lighter fare geared towards a younger audience. Here’s your chance to gain an enlightening look at this exciting platform, and its ambitions for unscripted and non-fiction content.
