Creative Unscripted: The Golden Era Of Prestige Factual Content

Between Making a Murderer, The Jinx, and Planet Earth our industry is seeing a boom in beautifully produced, long-form, engaging storytelling in the factual realm. Due to increased budgets, advances in technology, and growing audience curiosity, unscripted content is gaining traction on the critical and mass appeal of traditional drama and comedy programming. Learn from producers and broadcasters of leading non-fiction content as they discuss the current appetite for prestige factual programming, where this genre is going in the coming year, and how you could find great success with your productions.
