Going Glocal

Sponsored by

Grand Ballroom

Stories with rich local history and characters are on the rise, and networks are increasingly seeking international coproductions to deliver content with global appeal. Here, we’ll talk to an international roster of networks to find out about what fuels their desire for global content and how they keep the local DNA in their global productions to deliver programs that travel, including when a partner from another territory comes in.  How do the relationships complement each other, and is it true that the more local a production is, the more global it will resonate?

Being Human: Today’s Comedic Voices

Grand Ballroom

The comedic point of view is at the forefront of many of the most innovative comedies that we are watching today. Where did all these comedic voices come from? How were they supported and their voices nurtured, and what does it say about exploring the human experience in 2016?  Will we get another big tent - a la Big Bang - comedy again?  And are today's comedic voices not interested in the big tent, or is the big tent not interested in them?  Here, we’ll look at the correlation between creative freedom and having less production dollars at risk, and finding the right home for your voice versus maximizing your paycheck.
