Course Description

The course will deal with the worldwide industry of TV contents including international formats, scripted and kids programming. TV formats emerged in the last 15 years in all genres of TV content (from non scripted to fiction) and have become one of the main drivers of the industry growth. In the meantime, the broadcasters' appetite for scripted programmes has never been that high. The course will try to bring answers to a few key questions relating to the future of the production and distribution of TV content such as: How to create a concept with an international appeal? How to produce successful international co-productions? How new comers in both production and broadcasting are changing the international TV landscape?
