A marketplace for independently produced TV shows
If this year's Emmy ratings are any indication, television is where the magic is happening these days. And for those excited about the future of the medium, we suggest tuning into the New York Television Festival. Like a Sundance for the small screen, the six-day event is a showcase for independently produced television shows that are looking for distribution. Open to industry execs and TV fans, this year's fete includes 47 original television pilots, all of which you can check out for free. In the mix you'll find both comedies, dramas and animates series featuring the likes of Alyssa Milano (Charmed), David Wain (Wet Hot American Summer), Rachel Dratch (SNL), Steven Michael Quezada (Breaking Bad), John Lutz (30 Rock) and more. For those who want to find out more about where great TV comes from, the creator of Arrested Development Mitchell Hurwitz is stopping in to give a keynote and the Carson of Cable access, Chris Gethard, is taking part in a panel.
