The National Association of Television Program Executives will host its third annual TV Producers’ Boot Camp July 28-29 in Los Angeles.

Attendees have access to Q&A panels, keynote speakers and hands-on clinics providing a look into the development and production process. Participants will also have the opportunity for face-to-face pitch meetings with development executives from broadcast and cable networks, talents agencies and production and distribution companies. Rick Feldman, president and CEO of NATPE, announced the camp Tuesday.

Speakers confirmed for the event include John Ferriter, senior VP and head of network alternative packaging for the William Morris Agency; Brenda Hampton, executive producer of Showtime’s “Fat Actress” and The WB’s “7th Heaven”; and Jonathan Prince, creator, writer and executive producer of NBC’s “American Dreams.”

For its third year the program has been expanded to two tracks of sessions running simultaneously. The first looks at the creative and business process behind getting a show on the air, and the other features “meet the programmer” panels, case studies and Q&A sessions with producers.

The price for the two-day event is $410 for NATPE members and $680 for others, with discounts available for early registration.
