Before MIPCOM kicks off in October, VideoAge will publish an Issue for Jornadas in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Nonetheless, we’d like to give you a sneak peek into what to expect in VideoAge’s October issue at Cannes, which will be handed out at MIPCOM:

  • Lunchtime at the Major U.S. Studios
    The new shows aren’t the only attractions at the L.A. Screenings. Ever wonder what it’s like to be wined and dined by the U.S. studios? We’ll let you in on the menus associated with the shows.
  • U.S. TV Networks Are Changing with the Times, and their Schedules Are Too
    Sunday has become the night that networks use to program their most buzz-worthy shows… and not just in the U.S., it turns out.
  • Local Production vs. Content Acquisition
    With the crisis looming over many mature and immature territories, is it better, cheaper and more effective and efficient to produce locally or to acquire internationally? This is the million dollar question.
  • A Good Second Try for Dubrovnik’s NEM, But the Market Grows Slowly
    We take you behind the scenes at the second annual New Europe Market in Dubrovnik, Croatia. The question remains: Can the market sustain itself without being incorporated into another larger market?
  • Let’s Find Ways to Reduce the Failure Rate of U.S. TV’s New Series
    What if shows started on cable (also as a marketing tool) and moved to the network afterward? We delve into the possibilities.
  • Tech Talk
    Yes, technology is also covered: Brazil’s World Cup helps boost 4K-TV and Thailand expands its provincial DTTV
  • My 2 Cents
    Dom Serafini talks about market bags … and remembers the good ole days when they were actually worth taking home.

But don’t think that that’s all! VideoAge will cover finances (e.g. uncollected funds), sports (yes, SPORTEL is also coming up), previews (AFM, MIPCOM), reviews (NATPE Europe, Prix Italia and Jornadas), humor in the TV biz, various territories (i.e., Italy and Germany), our famous book review and 10 more of the challenging, unexplored, illuminating stories for which VideoAge is known.
