A network brand no longer merely identifies the channel and where to find it on your guide. It’s come to define the programming, level of quality and viewer experience that audiences look to that network to provide. But even beyond that, a strong network brand defines their viewers’ lifestyle, tastes and philosophy as well as giving birth to a multitude of new product lines and franchises. In this session, a seasoned group of network chiefs share their strategies for defining, building and invigorating their network’s core brand.

2:00 pm -2:45 pm—We’re All Naked, Now What? (Astor)
We’ve dated naked, had sex in a box and married at first sight. What’s next to shock and titillate reality audiences? It is sometimes said, amid ratings volatility, that reality may be dead, though it is also said that rumors of the category’s demise have been greatly exaggerated. Still, the challenge remains: how do we breathe new life into tired formats and stale docusoaps? With scripted TV enjoying a Golden Age and raising viewer expectations and entertainment value to all-time highs, must non-fiction TV be relegated to a lower echelon? Or is it gearing up for a budget-friendly resurgence when the rivers of money needed to develop and produce hour-long dramas and miniseries begin to run dry? Hear from reality visionaries who were integral to the creation of the non-fiction boom about what’s on the horizon.

From tightrope walks and musical theatre to Lady Gaga and skydivers in outer space, networks have developed a range of spectacles aimed at luring viewers back to their TV screens in real time. While cord cutters revel in the joys of seemingly limitless on-demand selections, what strategies are programmers deploying to amass the tens of millions of simultaneous viewers that give advertisers bang for the buck? Outside of live mainstays such as sports, awards shows and a handful of competition shows that consistently deliver, what’s working in can’t-miss TV to generate water cooler buzz and propel social media to “Oscar selfie” heights?

3:45 pm – 4:30 pm—The Rebirth of the Limited and Mini-Series (Astor)
Roots, The Thorn Birds and The Winds of War set the template in the 1970s. Now, even with audiences consuming their content in made to measure bites, the mini and limited series have roared back to life. Projects now routinely lure A-list film stars, award-winning producers, directors and writers to the small screen. But with big rewards come big budgets and, yes, bigger risks. In this session these maestros of the mini share their expertise and experience in producing some of TV’s biggest draws including new forms of distribution and funding models; how they attract the big-name talent that draws in advertisers and viewers and how they’re combating the growing competition from alternative programmers like Netflix and Amazon.

4:30 pm – 5:15 pm—The Twilight Zone of Reality Development (Astor)
With growing market saturation, derivative programming, cord cutting, softening ratings, and the difficulty of launching unknown casts, the pressure has never been higher to develop new reality hits. And yet, there are more steps than ever to get a series greenlit: from Skype calls to sizzles, casting reels to pilots. The bar is high — and so are the costs. Industry experts from both the network and production company side discuss and debate the costly process of getting a show to that green light.

9:15 am – 10:00 am—Who’s Laughing Now? (Astor)
Why is Amazon willing to pay up to $4 million — aka broadcast network money — for a half-hour comedy pilot? Crude, rude, audacious, irreverent, loud, sexually charged, cerebral, sketch, classic, slapstick, dumb and dumber — comedy takes many forms and has shown remarkable stickiness across platforms. But it looks a lot different than it did in Lucille Ball’s day — or heck, even Ray Romano’s. With MCNs and digital networks offering viewers a never-ending menu of comedic programming to match their every mood and moment, in readily consumable bites, is the sitcom obsolete? Where will the fresh ideas that make us laugh come from and what form will they take? Is there another Saturday Night Live on the horizon? Programming toppers from leading digital and linear comedy networks discuss how they’re keeping viewers laughing and coming back for more.

Are networks and advertisers finally paying attention to America’s changing demographics or is diversity just this year’s hot thing? Networks love to jump on a trend and this season boasts an array of broadcast shows centered around ethnically diverse families, characters and cultures, among them Jane The Virgin, Cristela and Black-ish. Programming leaders from the top multicultural networks discuss the significance of these programs and the art and challenge of creating truly integrated and authentic bicultural programming that’s relatable to all audiences vs. mere diversity casting.

Everyone knows that going the distance in a relationship takes work. So what’s a network to do when its loyal viewers get bored and start flirting with other channels or, even worse, forsaking it for digital alternatives? Or is it better to just move on, reinvent and start a new relationship with a completely different demo? This session brings together the best and brightest programming and development experts who’ll let you in on their strategies and successes in evolving and redefining their networks to create a whole new viewing experience.

2:00 pm – 2:45 pm—Advertiser-Funded Programming (Fitzgerald)
Since the beginning of TV the model’s been the same: programs are funded by the network, which recoups the investment by selling advertising around the content. Yet “soap operas” are so named because the original soaps were produced and funded by soap brands like P&G. And so we’ve come full circle, where advertisers have moved from buying ad space, product placement and brand integration to the actual creation and production of whole shows from scratch. With the creation of dedicated studios for AFP by the world’s largest agencies like Group M, BBH and Omnicom, how does the entry of these deep pocketed, data rich global agencies into the role of content creator, funder and owner impact the other stakeholders? Heads of a production powerhouse; one of the country’s largest agencies; a top cable network; and the foremost producer of branded content square off to debate and discuss this new dynamic and shift of power. How will everyone play together? Does the one who holds the biggest purse hold the power?

2:00 pm – 2:45 pm—The Urgent Evolution of Storytelling (Astor)
If 2014 is any indication, we’re witnessing a radical change in the creation, distribution and consumption of content. “Programming” is metamorphosing by the second. From non-fiction to social to scripted to pure fantasy–from CNNGo to Snapchat Stories to Oculus Rift—the possibilities enabled by new thinking, big data, hardware innovation and the global explosion of social video are hyper-accelerating new formats, new storytelling, and new programming. This panel invites a select group of content innovators to discuss the urgent evolution of storytelling in a world that is as much about creativity as data. What just happened, what’s happening tomorrow and where will we be in a year?

2:00 pm – 2:45 pm—How to Source Multiformat content: Finding the Right Video, Images and Audio for Your Production (Rockwell) Securing the best visual content to effectively convey your story is essential. The right visuals – video or images — can set your story apart in a competitive environment. But today there is a lack of awareness and understanding of where to source the content and, most importantly, how to vet the rights and clearances of these resources. The cost for not licensing content properly can result in delayed launch times, expensive research and additional rights costs. This is especially true for user-generated content (UGC). As more media use UGC, understanding appropriate vetting and clearing procedure is vital. This roundtable session will explore strategies for sourcing, vetting and managing content to avoid the pitfalls that can derail your work. You will speak with a variety of industry experts including The Associated Press to determine what visual resources are available to meet your visual storytelling needs for your next production.

2:45 pm – 3:30 pm—How A Show Gets Made (Fitzgerald)
The art of the pitch is a noble pursuit: tasty sizzle reels can woo a wide-eyed network executive. But in the end, a good idea is worthless if it can’t be executed. There are good shows and great ideas that produce a variety of results. Join us for an immersive, behind-the-scenes dive into the thinking behind the WHY of how a show gets made, including: Motivating factors for moving a project forward; the risk and rewards of working with seasoned vs. up-and-coming producers and the cost of development and its pitfalls.

Multiplatform viewing is TV’s new normal, a secular shift that challenges companies to operate nimbly and see around corners.

Simply letting the “digital group” down the hall handle the task of business evolution doesn’t cut it anymore. In this revealing conversation, veteran executives will shed light on how they have navigated the seas of innovation and developed cultures marked by open-source creativity and collaboration.
