There is still time to register for the 7th edition of Realscreen West in Santa Monica, CA, the West Coast’s largest and most relevant international gathering of content creators, distributors and broadcasters in today’s non-fiction and unscripted entertainment industry.

Realscreen events are known for inspirational and timely content presented in an interesting variety of formats ranging from structured networking, to debates, keynotes and panel discussions including Bringing Big Swings to Broadcast.

The unscripted genre has seen much change in the U.S. broadcast world – executive shake-ups, the resurgence of scripted drama, and various long-running franchises reaching their maturation point. But reality still packs a big punch on broadcast ratings-wise, and the next game-changing series could be just around the corner. Here, alternative broadcast execs and producers who’ve made their mark on the Big Five’s schedules weigh in on the challenges facing the genre and opportunities to reinvigorate and reinvent.

Last year’s record-breaking event attracted nearly 1,100 delegates from around the globe, including 300 buyers of unscripted programming, and we’re on track to shatter those attendance numbers. Check out the delegates page to see who’s attending.

Don’t miss out on Speed Pitching. Sign ups begin Wednesday May 20. Register now to get a chance to pitch your show idea to one of the top networks in the business
