When you choose the subject of your forthcoming TV series, how much do you really know about what the market is looking for next year or in two years’ time? The people whose business is to know are the those who finance and distribute TV series. Their understanding of the global marketplace is essential information to avoid writing a show that may be topical today but won’t be in two or three years’ time.
Joining Moderator Julian Friedmann (Blake Friedmann), our panel of heavy hitting TV Players includes Dave Clarke (EVP Content for DRG and Atrium TV), Louise Pederson (CEO, All3 Media International) and Caroline Percy (Investment Manager, The Ingenious Group).
