After an epic boom at the beginning of this decade, the unscripted entertainment industry, like the television business in general, is experiencing change, filled with new opportunities, as well as challenges. There is no better place to examine the state of unscripted’s new realities and to meet future partners with bold new ideas, willing to take a chance to capture and challenge an audience, than at the Realscreen Summit.

As the agenda comes together, you’ll find networking opportunities allowing you to get close to bona fide content buyers looking for the next great idea, as well as panel discussions that are designed to impart practical knowledge and stimulate constructive discourse, including
Under Pressure: the State Of the Unscripted Nation. You can’t afford to miss this important keynote panel on Monday, January 23, 2016.

Recent developments and controversies within the unscripted industry over the past few years have magnified the producer/network relationship, and put various business practices – and strains – under the microscope.

Falling ratings, squeezed margins and tensions over show ownership produce pressures on both sides, with all parties looking for ways to stay profitable in a precarious, uncertain climate driven by major shifts in media. This important session will bring together stakeholders from various sectors of the industry, with an aim towards articulating and understanding the challenges as they exist now, and for the immediate future, as well as potential ways to find “win/win” scenarios for all concerned.

Don’t miss being part of the 19th edition of the Realscreen Summit in Washington DC, taking place Monday, January 23 – Thursday, January 26, 2017 at the Marriott Marquis.
