NYTVF Artist Keynote: Erin Cardillo and Richard Keith
The NYTVF welcomes award-winning festival Alums Erin Cardillo and Richard Keith for its LA Artist Keynote Conversation. After taking home top script honors from the NYTVF, the writing team has become a force in TV over the last half decade, creating, writing, and executive producing Significant Mother on The CW and writing and co-executive producing Fuller House on Netflix. In advance of their newest series Life Sentence (starring Lucy Hale and premiering March 7 on The CW), Cardillo and Keith will sit down for a look at their careers, their advice for succeeding in the industry, and the tools they use to tell stories and engage audiences.

Creating Outside the Bubble: Breaking into the TV Marketplace
This industry-centric panel discussion will focus on the shifting TV marketplace, examining how the indie writer/creator can hone their voice, vision, and expertise to craft stories, pitches, and sustainable projects that speak to today's audiences and TV decision-makers. With an eye toward the current development and production landscape, what trends are coming into focus, versus those that are on their way out? How can creators best position their experience, passion, and hire-ability to maximize their opportunities in the industry? Is there any such thing as a safe bet?
