Dec 1, 2004  •  Post A Comment

TelevisionWeek will hold its annual Syndication Roundtable at 8 a.m. Dec. 8 at the St. Regis Hotel in Century City, Calif.

One of the publication’s most popular features, the Roundtable usually is held behind closed doors, with participants’ comments printed in a subsequent two-part feature story. This year, the Roundtable will be open to an audience as part of TVWeek‘s popular new Power Breakfast series.

TVWeek Editor Alex Ben Block will serve as moderator for a high-profile panel of industry professionals, including Linda Bell Blue, executive producer of “ET” and “The Insider”; Don Corsini, president and general manager of KCBS-TV and KCAL-TV, Los Angeles; Mark Itkin, executive VP, worldwide head of syndication, cable and non-fiction programming for the William Morris Agency; Jim Paratore, president of Telepictures Productions and executive VP of Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution; and Barry Wallach, president of NBC Universal Domestic Television Distribution. More panelists will be announced.

Topics will include predictions of the big genres for next year; the struggle for ratings; new technologies and how they may affect the marketplace; and new ways to attract ad dollars. Audience members will also have the opportunity to pose their own questions.

Limited seating is still available for the event at $50 per person. To register, log onto tvweek.com/breakfast or call 323-370-2412.
