Tyler Perry To Keynote Event For Students And Young Professionals On Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Living The Dream: A Career In Content

First-Ever Event Presented By NATPE In Association With The NAACP And The NHFA

“Living the Dream: A Career in Content” Featuring Esai Morales, Gloria Calderon Kellett, Benjamin Lobato and more in Miami on January 21, 2019

LOS ANGELES, CA (October 9, 2018)NATPE, the National Association of Television Program Executives, will present the first ever “Living the Dream: A Career in Content” event in partnership with the NAACP, (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) and the NHFA (National Hispanic Foundation for the Arts). The event will be held on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Monday, January 21, 2019, one day before NATPE Miami 2019 commences, at the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach Florida.

The special event is designed to assist students, young professionals and others with a desire to enter the entertainment and media industries to learn more about how their dreams can become a reality. Both the NHFA and the NAACP are committed to raising awareness of diversity and inclusion in front and behind the camera as well as in all creative content with the overall mission to ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate race-based discrimination. The organizations both have programs to inspire today’s youth and are committed to furthering awareness of multi-cultural content, diversity in media, and inspiring youth to follow their dreams.

World-renowned producer, director, actor and screenwriter Tyler Perry, will deliver the Keynote Address. Mr. Perry is an outstanding example of an individual who began his career with very little and through extraordinary talent and dedication has risen to the top of the industry in all areas of his multi-talented skills. Mr. Perry’s remarks will be followed by a panel headlined by CSI: Los Angeles’ Esai Morales, showrunner for USA’s “Queen of the South”, Benjamin Lobato and Netflix’ “One Day at a Time” showrunner Gloria Calderon Kellett, as well as other leading talent, executives, producers and writers who have imbedded storylines of diversity in their works. The final portion of the day’s presentations will be followed by a “Celebration of Creativity”, in which three pre-selected students will present story ideas dealing with diversity live onstage to a panel of industry-leading development executives. The three budding young filmmakers will be selected from the NAACP’s Hollywood Bureau film education program, which searches the country for talented young people in a variety of disciplines, and the NHFA’s whose PitchDC and PitchNY programs showcase authentic and original content ideas from NHFA student scholars, alumni and associates.

“This will be a very special day. A day to honor Martin Luther King Jr. and to inspire and empower young people as they begin a career in entertainment and media. We are honored to be presenting this event, headlined by Tyler Perry, and in association with two of the most respected organizations in America,” said JP Bommel, President and CEO, NATPE. “I know that those that will attend will be enriched with greater knowledge about the opportunities that lie before them.”

“Martin Luther King, like Cesar Chavez, spent their lives working to become the change they asked us all to become in our beloved country,” said Felix Sanchez, NHFA Chairman and Co-founder, “during these trying times, we look to storytellers to reveal the true narrative of our nation. We applaud NATPE for its leadership to advance these principles.”

“Joining forces with NATPE on Martin Luther King Jr’s birthday is right in line with the efforts we put forth to bring diversity to the forefront of everyone’s minds, especially in the world of entertainment,” said Derrick Johnson, President and CEO, NAACP. “We are honored to bring students together to hear from one of the greatest creative and business minds of our generation in Tyler Perry, and are excited to reveal the rest of the programming, which will feature top talent and executives from television, as we draw closer to the event.”

All proceeds from the event will go to the NATPE Educational Foundation to support educational initiatives. NATPE will invite students from Miami-area universities and high schools who are interested in getting into the entertainment/media business to the event. Industry execs attending NATPE will also be in attendance to network and engage with students. The NATPE Educational Foundation and its programs are focused on creating new professional opportunities for young professionals looking to pursue a career in Hollywood.

Copyright & Dispute Policy

1. How we use your information


This privacy notice tells you what to expect when the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF TELEVISION PROGRAM EXECUTIVES, INC. (“NATPE” or “we” or “us” or “our”) collects your personal information. It applies to information we collect to connect members of the content industry throughout the Professional Television/Entertainment Industry:

• visitors to our websites and affiliated NATPE web pages hosted elsewhere on the internet.
 • surveys on our websites and affiliated NATPE web pages hosted elsewhere on the internet. 
• complainants and other individuals in relation to a data protection or data subject’s complaint or enquiry under the General data Protection regulation (GDPR);
• people who use our services, e.g. create a user account, register for a membership, program, conference and/or exhibition, order a product or service, submit content and/or post content in discussion forums or other public areas, enter a contest or sweepstakes, fill out a survey, or send us feedback);
• job applicants and our current and former employees.

2. Visitors to our websites

Because an essential function of our website is performing customized matches and business searches largely based upon the information you consent to our use of any information you provide to us for this purpose. Please read the information below to learn what types of information we are collecting and what may happen to that information you input to and through our website and affiliated NATPE web pages hosted elsewhere on the internet. 

When someone visits www.natpe.org we use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behavior patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of our website. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website. When we collect personally identifiable information through our website, we are up front about this. We make it clear when we collect personal information and explain what we intend to do with it.

A. Personally Identifiable Information

This refers to information that lets us know the specifics of who you are. When you engage in certain activities on this site, such as creating a user account, registering for a membership, program, conference and/or exhibition, ordering a product or service, submitting content and/or posting content in discussion forums or other public areas, entering a contest or sweepstakes, filling out a survey, or sending us feedback, we may ask you to provide certain information about yourself by filling out and submitting an online form. 

It is completely optional for you to engage in these activities. If you elect to engage in these activities, however, we may ask that you provide us personal information, such as your first and last name, mailing address (including zip code), email address, website, employer, job title and department, telephone and facsimile numbers, and other personal identifying information. 

When ordering products or services or registering for a membership, program, conference or exhibition on our website and affiliated NATPE web pages hosted elsewhere on the internet, you may be asked to provide a credit card number. Depending upon the activity, some of the information we ask you to provide is identified as mandatory and some as voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory data with respect to a particular activity, you will not be able to engage in that activity because we need that information to provide you the activities you required.

B. Nonpersonally Identifiable Information

This refers to information that does not by itself identify you specifically. We gather certain information about you based upon where you visit on our website and affiliated NATPE web pages hosted elsewhere on the internet, in several ways. This information is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis. This information may include the Website’s Uniform Resource Locator (“URL”) that you just came from, which URL you next go to, what browser you are using, and your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address. 

A URL is the global address of documents and other resources on the World Wide Web. An IP address is an identifier for a computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (“TCP/IP”) network, such as the World Wide Web. Networks like the Web use the TCP/IP protocol to route information based on the IP address of the destination. 

In other words, an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the web, allowing web servers to locate and identify your computer. Computers require IP addresses in order for users to communicate on the Internet. 

The following are example of Nonpersonally Identifiable Information we collect:

i. Email open and click-through — We collect information about whether you have opened email messages from us and/or clicked on links in those emails. This helps us evaluate the relevance of the content in our communications.
ii. Visits to shortcut website addresses—Some published website addresses are shortcuts that redirect you to a page with a longer address. When a redirect is initiated, we log the shortcut website address, date, time, and IP address.
iii. Log-ins and attempted log-ins—When you create a user account, log in, log out, or attempt to log in with invalid credentials, we record the date, time, your user ID (if you are logged in), IP address, the website address (URL) you accessed, web browser type, and a description of the event, which would include the email address you registered your account with.

Our History – NATPE Awards

 

Throughout its history, NATPE has presented the following awards:

Brandon Tartikoff Legacy Award
Iris Awards 
Creative Achievement Award 
Chairman’s Award 
NATPE Educational Foundation Award 
NATPE Scholarship Award
NATPE Digital Luminary Award
NATPE Reality Innovator Award
NATPE Reality Breakthrough Award
NATPE Unscripted Breakthrough Award

Brandon Tartikoff Legacy Awards

The Brandon Tartikoff Legacy Awards were inaugurated in 2004 and presented at a special reception held during the NATPE Conference and Exhibition in Las Vegas. Named in honor of Brandon Tartikoff, arguably one of the medium’s greatest programmers whose imprint on the television industry will be viewed forever, the Legacy Awards were created to recognize a select group of television professionals who exhibit extraordinary passion, leadership, independence and vision in the process of creating television programming and to evoke the spirit of Tartikoff’s generosity. The Brandon Tartikoff Legacy Awards are held in association with Broadcasting & Cable, Multichannel News and Variety. Legacy Award submissions are initially collected online through NATPE’s website with NATPE’s Executive Committee and the executive editorial staffs of the sponsoring trade publications making the final selection of honorees.

In announcing the inaugural Legacy Award recipients, NATPE President and CEO Rick Feldman stated,’…These Awards were specifically designed to honor those who champion excellence in the development and creation of programming…’

Chairman’s Award (1980 to 2003)

NATPE’s President’s Award was first introduced in 1980 and presented to Lew Klein, co-founder of NATPE and Gateway Communications during its annual Conference & Exhibition. The President’s Award, renamed the NATPE Chairman’s Award in 1989, recognized outstanding contributions by individuals and companies for the advancement of the television industry and is given at the discretion of the NATPE Chairperson. View complete list of Chairman’s Award Recipients.

Creative Achievement Award (1965 to 2002) NATPE’s Man of the Year award was first introduced in 1965 and honored an individual who made an outstanding contribution to the television industry. In 1975, when the Man of the Year was a female journalist by the name of Barbara Walters, the award name was changed to NATPE’s Person of the Year award. In 1979, the name was shortened to simply Award of the Year but in 1990, it was changed again, this time to NATPE’s Lifetime Achievement Award. In 1999, the award was further defined by changing its name once more, to NATPE’s Creative Achievement Awards, and is now given out at the discretion of the NATPE board of directors when it is felt that there is a deserving recipient.

Iris Awards (1968 to 2000)

The Program Excellence Awards were first introduced in 1968 and were later renamed the NATPE Iris Awards in 1977. As the only national award to honor quality local programming, NATPE’s annual Iris Awards were the industry’s symbol for programming excellence, coveted by both the creative community as well as television station and cable system management. Recognizing that it takes a little more to deliver good local programming – more patience, more time and usually more creativity to compensate for the limited budgets that are synonymous with local programming – the Iris Awards were judged by industry executives who understood what it took to get the job done. In addition to industry recognition, NATPE’s Iris Awards also provided local program producers with a career enhancing opportunity to meet key decision-maker from the nation’s leading television companies. These awards were presented in conjunction with the annual NATPE Conference and Exhibition through 1997. In 1998, 1999 and 2000, the awards were presented during a special luncheon ceremony in Los Angeles.

NATPE Educational Foundation Award (1992 to 1998)

Introduced in 1992, the Educational Foundation Award was presented to Alex Haley for his phenomenal success with Roots, changing the face of television and educating millions about America’s history and its struggles with slavery. The Educational Foundation Award would continue to be bestowed on companies and individuals in recognition for their excellence in and support of using television programming as an educational tool. The award is presented at the discretion of the president and board of the NATPE Educational Foundation.

NATPE Scholarship Award (1969 to 1983)

Introduced in 1969, the award name was changed to Lee Waller Memorial Scholarship Awards in 1976 and increased to four scholarships. In 1979, Mort Rosenman’s name was also added to the Scholarship awards. In 1984, Faculty Development Grants replaced Scholarship Internship Awards.

Our History – NATPE

As the medium of television grew up, program directors at local U.S. television stations felt a need for a program specific forum to discuss and resolve the challenges faced as a result of the Prime Time Access Rule, which gave responsibility for programming between 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. to local stations and program directors. Encouraged by syndicated programming salesmen, 64 program directors (NATPE’s charter members) named Stan Cohen of WDSU New Orleans temporary president and set about organizing a meeting.

The first formal meeting of the National Associates of Television Program Executives was held in May of 1964 at the New York Hilton Hotel and drew 71 registrants. The majority of participants where program directors. During that historical first two-day meeting in New York, the topics of discussion ranged from ‘The Network’s Relationship to Local Programming’ and ‘Where Do You Find Talent?’ to ‘Government’s Influence on Programming’ and ‘Successful Formats for Handling Politicians & Political Issues.’ In spite of the myriad of change the television industry has experienced over the past 40 years, some things still remain the same.

Like the membership it serves, NATPE too has changed dramatically over the past 40 years. NATPE’s membership grew from 64 to 210 by 1970; up to 1,206 in 1980; 1818 in 1990 and to a whopping 3,812 by the new millennium, January 2000. Like its membership, NATPE’s annual conference has also shown incredible growth. Moving from New York to Chicago, New Orleans, Miami, Houston, San Francisco, Atlanta and Las Vegas as it also migrated from May to February, to March, back to February and eventually settled into January. The event added exhibition suites in 1980 and an exhibit floor in 1981. By the early 80s the international television industry was experiencing tremendous growth and looked to NATPE as others had before as a place to share ideas and confront challenges.

As a vital link between the television industry, the academic community and students, the NATPE Educational Foundation, was formed in 1978. Its mission is to reach out to students by providing hands-on opportunities for them and their teachers in order to help prepare them for a future in television. NATPE’s Educational Foundation, underwritten by membership fees and the support of sponsors and special endowments, provides a number of annual fellowship, grants and prizes to the academic community. Lew Klein, one of the founders of NATPE and an early president of the organization, continues his dedication to the association as president of the Educational Foundation.

Today, NATPE continues to redefine itself and the services it provides to the ever-changing global television industry. Encouraging progress, NATPE keeps members apprised of the changes occurring daily in the global media environment. NATPE also remains committed to providing its members with education, networking, professional enhancement and technological guidance by publishing timely directories and offers a full compliment of online services to its membership, in addition to its role as the only American program market serving the worldwide television community.

  1. Nonpersonally Identifiable Information

This refers to information that does not by itself identify you specifically. We gather certain information about you based upon where you visit on our website and affiliated NATPE web pages hosted elsewhere on the internet, in several ways. This information is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis. This information may include the Website’s Uniform Resource Locator (“URL”) that you just came from, which URL you next go to, what browser you are using, and your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address. 

A URL is the global address of documents and other resources on the World Wide Web. An IP address is an identifier for a computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (“TCP/IP”) network, such as the World Wide Web. Networks like the Web use the TCP/IP protocol to route information based on the IP address of the destination. 

In other words, an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the web, allowing web servers to locate and identify your computer. Computers require IP addresses in order for users to communicate on the Internet. 

The following are categories of Nonpersonally Identifiable Information we collect:

Log data

When you access our websites and applications our servers automatically log data such as your IP address, operating system type and version, browser type and version, etc. We use this data to help us ensure the security of our services and to provide technical support.

Legal basis for collection of log data: our legitimate interest in properly administering and securing our websites and services.

Aggregated usage data

We use Google Analytics to collect and aggregate data about your use of our website and services. This data may include your IP address, geographical location, browser type and version, operating system, referral source, length of visit, page views and website navigation paths, feature usage, as well as information about the timing, frequency and pattern of your service use. We use this data to analyze the use of our websites and to help us make good decision about changes we make.

For example, it may help us decide which languages to translate our website to in reviewing the aggregated usage data to determine what percentage of our users come from which countries. We have executed the data processing addendum (DPA) with Google and set the retention of your usage data to 24 months.

Legal basis for collection of aggregated usage data: our legitimate interest in monitoring and improving our services.

  1. Cookies

To make this site work properly, we sometimes place small data files called cookies on your device. Most big websites do this too.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.

How do we use cookies?

Our cookies store randomly assigned user identification numbers, the country where you are located, and your first name to welcome you back to our website. A number of our pages use cookies to remember:

–           your display preferences, such as contrast colour settings or font size

–           if you have already replied to a survey pop-up that asks you if the content was helpful or not (so you won’t be asked again)

–           if you have agreed (or not) to our use of cookies on this site

Also, some videos embedded in our pages use a cookie to anonymously gather statistics on how you got there and what videos you visited.

Cookies are also stored by Google Analytics, the third-party service which measures the effectiveness and efficiency of NATPE websites.

You will also be asked to provide equal opportunities information. This is not mandatory information – if you don’t provide it, it will not affect your application. This information will not be made available to any staff outside of our recruitment team, including hiring managers, in a way which can identify you. Any information you provide, will be used only to produce and monitor equal opportunities statistics.

Our hiring managers shortlist applications for interview. They will not be provided with your name or contact details or with your equal opportunities information if you have provided it.

COPYRIGHT & DISPUTE POLICY

Effective date: October 22, 2015

National Association Of Television Program Executives, Inc. (“NATPE” has adopted a general policy regarding copyright in accordance with the Digital Millenium Copyright Act of 1998 (“DCMA”).¹ Accordingly, NATPE removes material that is the subject of a valid DMCA takedown notice and that NATPE is able to remove. This provision does not apply to information that does not exist or reside on our website. 

Please consult with an attorney before filing a DMCA notification if you are unsure whether material presented or featured by NATPE infringes on your copyright. You may be subject to liability for damages, including costs and attorneys’ fees incurred by NATPE or other parties, for misrepresenting material as infringing on your copyright.

Reporting a Copyright Infringement or a Counter-Notification
Section 512 of the DMCA provides the rules for reporting copyright infringement.

If you believe your copyright is being infringed, you can report the alleged violation. If your project was the subject of a takedown notice, you can submit a counter-notification. 

1. Reporting Procedure For Copyright Infringements. If you believe that material or content featured by, disseminated by, or connected in any way to NATPE, infringes your copyright or the copyright of someone whom you are authorized to act on the behalf of, please send a notice of copyright infringement containing the following information to NATPE’s Designated Agent to Receive Notification of Claimed Infringement (our “Designated Agent,” whose contact details are listed below):

a. A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright that has been allegedly infringed;
b. Identification of works or materials being infringed;
c. Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing including information regarding the location of the infringing materials that the copyright owner seeks to have removed, with sufficient detail so that NATPE is capable of finding and verifying its existence;
d. Contact information about the notifier including address, telephone number and, if available, email address;
e. A statement that the notifier has a good faith belief that the material identified in (1)(c) is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
f. A statement made under penalty of perjury that the information provided is accurate and the notifying party is authorized to make the complaint on behalf of the copyright owner.

2. Procedure Following Valid Infringement Notification. Upon receipt of a proper notice of copyright infringement, we reserve the right to:

a. remove or disable access to the copyrighted material; and
b. notify the content provider who is accused of infringement that we have removed or disabled access to the copyrighted material; and
c. terminate access by such content provider to the Services if he or she is a repeat offender.

3. Counter-Notice Procedure. A content provider may send a counter-notice if the content provider believes that the material that was removed or to which access has been disabled is not infringing, or the content provider believes that it has the right to post and use such copyrighted material from the copyright owner, the copyright owner’s agent, or, pursuant to the law. The counter notice should be sent to the Designated Agent and contain the following information:

a. A physical or electronic signature of the content provider;
b. Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or disabled;
c. A statement that the content provider has a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material; and
d. Content provider’s name, address, telephone number, and, if available, email address, and a statement that such person or entity consents to the jurisdiction of the Federal Court for the judicial district in which the content provider’s address is located, or, if the content provider’s address is located outside the United States, for any judicial district in which NATPE is located, and that such person or entity will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement.

4. Procedure Following Receipt of Counter-Notice. NATPE may, in its discretion, send a copy of any counter-notice received by its Designated Agent to the original complaining party. NATPE will then inform that party that NATPE may replace the removed material or cease disabling it in 10 business days. At NATPE’s discretion, NATPE may replace or restore access to the removed material in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the content provider accused of committing infringement.
