But what about the buyers? The return of the in-person L.A. Screenings after skipping two events due the pandemic has found the U.S. studios with Fox and Disney missing, plus a reduced number of acquisition executives, but all excited  — at least those contacted by VideoAge — to be returning to Hollywood to screen the 2022-2023 new U.S. TV season.

In terms of territories, all countries are in attendance, with the exception of companies from Asia, which will be represented by their U.S.-based offices. The largest contingents of buyers come from Canada and Europe, especially Germany, the U.K., Italy, and France, all scattered around town at their favorite hotels. LATAM has also a large group of program buyers, mainly housed at the Fairmont Century Plaza Hotel (which is the venue for the indie screenings).

Below is a list of key acquisition and programming executives that are scheduled to be in Los Angeles for L.A. Screenings 2022.
