Master Class: TV Writing and TV Series

May 14, 2014
7:00 PM - 9:30 PM
Columbia Global Centers | Rio de Janeiro

Joe Cacaci, of the Film Program at Columbia University School of the Arts in New York,  will examine the similarities and differences of the TV business in Brazil and the United States.  The event  will discuss the entire process: from developing an idea, to creating a bible and pitching to producers and networks in the fast-changing world of television. 

Shows like Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Modern Family and House of Cards are bringing a new sophistication to television programming in the United States. How does that connect with the positive scenario for local productions in Brazil? How does this change of roles between writers, producers and show runners can affect TV productions?

Using anecdotes from their extensive experience creating shows that sell, as well as those that do not, they offer a comprehensive view on the state of television today in Brazil, the United States and around the world.

Moderator: Lucas Paraízo (Pontifical Catholic University in Rio de Janeiro)

The Master Class is part of the Festival Adaptação that gets together writers and professionals of the industry.
