Breakfast with the Reality Majors

Start Day Three of NATPE17 by breaking bread with the industry’s leading unscripted creatives and executives, and learn how they deal with the challenges and opportunities they face every morning. The myriad issues facing this sector – the proliferation of streaming services; the perception that there’s “too much tv”; an audience that cycles from scripted to unscripted at will – present some of the biggest hurdles yet for 2017. Much has changed over the past two years, and our expert panel will take a deep dive into the tough topics: What is the biggest problem for producers in 2017? If changes could (or should) be made to the existing development process what would they be? If your son/daughter was graduating from college and wanted to be in the content business what would you tell them? This morning session is a wonderful opportunity to hear from those you want to be in business with, and start your day with new ideas and energy.
