An Indie Guide to TV's Fastest-Growing Phenomenon


Join the NYTVF and guests for a frank and practical discussion on the creation, development, and sale of formats during this special Los Angeles panel on Thursday, February 20 at Busby's East (5364 Wilshire Boulevard). Hear first-hand from experts and producers as they discuss what goes into making a format, where the marketplace is shifting, and how comedy and unscripted work together in this new model.
