In 18 months, no one will be talking about:
Harvey Weinstein.

The best factual content I’ve seen online in 2017:
Ball In the Family.

The most positive development in the non-fiction content industry this past year was:
The willingness to agree from all parties. It’s not been easy but we are all in it to win it!

The length of time it takes to get series to air.

The idea I wish I thought of was:
Live PD.

If 2017 taught me one thing it was:
Anyone can be the President of the United States.
