Session from TV Day - September 30, 2011
Flashpoint, Being Erica, Call Me Fitz, Combat Hospital, The Firm… there’s a trend for co-financed shows south of the border and a surge in cross-border buying and collaboration, thanks in part to our impressive international co-production track record. The most prominent example yet of a trend for networks is co-financing new TV series. For the past few years, the squeeze on production financing translates to US networks continuing to look to our producers to carry the freight. Join us in a discussion with broadcasters, producers and network execs about creating engaging series that resonate with viewers beyond our borders.
