Controlling Stakes, Creativity & Commissions

Thursday, October 1, 2015
10:45 AM - 11:45 AM

With the wave of consolidation that has swept the international independent production sector over the last few years, the television landscape has experienced incredible change. As large media and broadcast groups are still avidly snapping up controlling and minority stakes for a range of production companies – from super-indies to smaller outfits – how is the seemingly never-ending spending spree impacting commissioning, creativity and IP exploitation in the UK, the US, and abroad? And where will it go from here? This panel brings together various stakeholders to discuss and debate the benefits and drawbacks of this new era of consolidation.
