The New Golden Age of Television

Is “netflix-ing” the way of our future? Wall Street sure thinks so. Simply stated, internet TV is growing globally in ways that traditional TV just isn’t. From our desk tops to our wrists, the opportunities to watch what we want, when we want, and where we want have dramatically impacted our habits and desire. Who IS this up-ender, disruptor, change-maker who is so dramatically influencing our consumption of story-telling? Meet Ted Sarandos, gutsy program chief of Netflix, whose platinum successes include House of Cards, “Orange is the New Black”, and now “Grace and Frankie”. Underwritten by Genworth.

Festival: 2015
