Loeb & Loeb LLP is proud to sponsor the New York Television Festival 2010, where partner Marc Chamlin, will be moderating a panel titled, "The Bones of Development: Best Practices in Nonscripted Programming."
From the festival website:
The NYTVF was founded in 2005 as the industry's first recognized independent television festival, providing a platform to elevate the work of artists creating for the small screen. Held annually each fall in New York City, the birthplace of modern television, the Festival unites artists, executives, industry figures, and fans together in one forum to celebrate the medium and to help shape its future.
The NYTVF's Independent Pilot Competition has established a pipeline allowing producers, writers, and directors to showcase their original TV pilots directly to the decision-makers of the industry. In its first three years, the Festival has featured acclaimed independent pilots that were purchased by networks such as NBC Universal, A&E, and Versus, and that landed a number of TV producers and creators in meetings with major networks and production companies. The NYTVF offers the next generation of storytellers unprecedented access to development executives and producers looking for the next hit show. All you need is an idea and a video camera.
