As new distribution platforms flourish, major film and TV producers are enjoying so much choice in how to grow their business. Today’s global marketplace is also attracting attention of new partners and funding sources for producers and their production companies who are emboldened by great opportunity across content-hungry platforms. With digital outlets often paying top dollar, some producers are setting themselves up as autonomous players in the industry. Other major producers are finding renewed strength within traditional studio deals. Venable partner, Alan Epstein will participate on this panel that will explore the choices producers are making to succeed in this fast evolving and expanding entertainment industry. They will cover:

  • Who are the key architects of today’s new production deals?
  • What are producers seeking in this new wave of business and investment courtship?
  • Top producers and their financial partners will explore how they are structuring content deals going forward.
