The Producer’s Responsibility in Storytelling with Eva Longoria, Mike Royce, Adam Pincus and Jerrod Carmichael

In addition to telling stories that entertain, it is a producer’s ethical and social responsibility to tell stories that matter; while simultaneously representing the culture past and present, with respect to race, class, age and gender. Join this panel of industry creatives and executives as they discuss the current, “Golden Age” of television content and access to it; as well as how responsible programming has impacted the political and social climate of today. As scripted drama continues to inspire and engage loyal viewers, it can also reflect our world from multiple perspectives, giving voice to all sides of important issues. Sensitivity and understanding of the real-world challenges of the day in production of televised content is a topic which could not be more timely; you will not want to miss this session, sure to be a memorable highlight of the NATPE 2017 conference.
