Join us on November 8, 2017 for a special in conversation with Steve Stark, President of Television Production & Development at MGM, where we’ll connect with him about the studio’s award-winning success with some of today’s most talked about series, as well as his thoughts on the expanding landscape of the scripted television business; from how to create loud, buzz-worthy content, to navigating the new opportunities to showcase high-quality series across multiple platforms, and what it means for creators today.

Since joining MGM in 2011, Stark has played an integral role in growing the studio’s pipeline of scripted content with numerous shows on air or in production. Just this year, Stark and his team’s scripted series, delivered 32 of the studio’s record breaking 47 Emmy Award nominations, including 16 nominations for Fargo (FX); 13 nominations for The Handmaid’s Tale (Hulu); and three nominations for Vikings (HISTORY). In his role, Stark is responsible for all scripted content, from concept to production; partnerships with multi-platform broadcasters including network, cable and digital outlets; and development of new productions, including reinvigorating MGM’s stellar library. In addition to the aforementioned series, Stark oversees the studio’s production efforts on Teen Wolf (MTV); Get Shorty (EPIX); the upcoming scripted series Condor (AT&T Audience Network) and The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair (EPIX).

Stark joined MGM from Steve Stark Productions where he served as President and Executive Producer, leading the company to an overall deal with NBC/Universal Television. Throughout his career, he has been responsible for overseeing or producing more than 1,900 episodes of television.

The third edition of Scripted takes place November 7-8, 2017 at the W Hollywood Hotel in Los Angeles. Capacity is limited, so don’t miss out on the chance to secure your spot now.
