Networks & Producers in the Age of Disruption

Networks & Producers in the Age of Disruption

Rapid changes in technology, social media, and consumer viewing habits are redefining the “cable network” model, which in turn is putting unscripted producers and production companies under increasing pressure to produce more for less. Challenges in development funding, series budgets, size of orders are calling into question “the way things are done.” Both networks and producers are feeling the heat – but are these merely short-term challenges in need of a few tweaks to fix? Or are they profound structural shocks that cry out for a complete re alignment of a decades old business model? Join the executives who face these issues, and find the solutions that will move your own business forward by listening in on this high-level discussion.
