Endless creative potential. Less risk-averse. Captures short attention spans. Allows more time to shine. They’re all factors prompting directors, producers, writers and actors to move from feature films to television. True Detective, The Knick, and The Strain are just a few Hollywood examples.
Strategic Partners 2016, presented by the Atlantic Film Festival from Sept. 15-17, is easing that transition with its Dramatic Television Incubator. Now in its second year, the program targets mid- to senior-level producers who have a dramatic series in development, with a broadcaster attached, and face a learning curve as they transition to the new medium.
