With thousands of hours of unscripted content on broadcast, cable, and digital platforms today, the genre has evolved into a variety of formats – from competition to game show, talk to docuseries, social experiment, and even non fiction/documentary. Many networks are starting to recognize viewers’ “reality fatigue” and shift their content to focus on real stories. As projects are greenlit and available across more platforms than ever before, the question emerges – what’s the next big thing in the ever evolving unscripted storytelling genre? A panel of leaders that create programming for this genre will take a deep dive into the current state of affairs, and the future, regarding this ever shifting landscape. This session is as “real” as it gets, so be sure to circle it on your NATPE itinerary.
