Upcoming Event


The TV Summit of the Fall Season

Saturday, October 27, from 8:30am to 2pm
at the Director’s Guild of America in Hollywood.

Is it “JUST TV?” or is it something more?

Join celebrated showrunners like Larry Wilmore
(The Bernie Mac Show, ‘Senior Black Correspondent’
on The Daily Show, ‘Mr. Brown’ on The Office) and
Nancy Miller (The Closer and TNT’s new drama, Saving Grace, starring
Holly Hunter) as we consider television’s potential
to initiate social change. We’ll also interact with
producers from Battlestar Galactica, The X-Files,
and The Invisible Man as they project
today’s topical issues into the future.

Amongst the all-star panelists guiding the discussion will
be Dr. Diane Winston, the Knight Chair in Media and Religion
at USC and Dr. Thom Parham from Azusa Pacific University.

Special guests include producer Michael Taylor from Battlestar
Galactica and Star Trek: Voyager, Valerie Mayhew from The X-Files and
Charmed, Matt Greenberg, creator of the Sci-Fi Channel’s
The Invisible Man and screenwriter of The Screwtape Letters,
Dean Batali from Buffy the Vampire Slayer and That 70s Show,
and Leilani Downer from A Different World and Growing Pains.
“JUST TV?” will be hosted by Craig Detweiler, co-director of Reel Spirituality.

Continental breakfast and lunch are included in the $60 registration
(half price for students). Sign up now before this TV event sells out at:
