They say a little healthy competition is good for business, and no-where is this more evident than in the business of TV. The stats don’t lie, on-demand viewing has been nipping at the heels of traditional media and recent reports note that the scales are close to tipping. Options abound for the viewer, and even more so for the creator, with comedy leading the charge. Hear from those at the forefront of this rapidly changing landscape how viewing preferences and audience fragmentation are influencing their decisions on what shows to make, where and how they are finding the hottest new talent, and how they are reaching their target audience.
