TRENDING ... From Short-shorts to New Chip! 
What is the latest hot programming trend, and what has already lost its steam? From the proliferation of short-form to the reinvigorated blue-chip program, personal narrative and the ubiquitous “character-driven” show, Industry visionaries discuss where they see the market heading, and how to stay at the front edge of the latest programming wave.
