Charlie Corwin (pictured, left) and Cris Abrego (right), co-chairmen and co-CEOs of Endemol Shine North America, are to kick off the 2015 Realscreen Summit with a special keynote conversation.

The keynote will see the duo discussing the challenges they’ve faced and the triumphs they’ve celebrated in their careers to date; their thoughts on the obstacles and opportunities facing the unscripted industry and television itself in the years ahead; and their plans for the North American arm of the newly-merged Endemol Shine Group.

The news comes after last month’s completion of regulatory approval for the Endemol-Shine Group-Core Media merger.

Corwin and Abrego’s talk will kick of this year’s Realscreen Summit on January 27. The event takes place over four days, through to January 30, at the Washington Hilton in Washington DC.

In tandem with the keynote, Endemol Shine North America will host an industry party in Washington DC on January 28.
