In the wonderful ambience of Café Gymnasium in Zagreb the complete program for NEM 2019 was unveiled, along with the three names of Hollywood stars who will be guests of the most popular event dedicated to the TV industry in Dubrovnik.
Projects such as NEM are of outmost importance for the TV industry, not only on the regional, but on the global scale as well. The event became renown by gathering key people and all segments of the industry in one place.
This is the seventh edition of NEM, and it will be held 10 – 13 June in Dubrovnik.
Special guests of this year’s NEM are three Hollywood stars. Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba will showcase their new series, from the universe of the Jerry Bruckheimer Bad Boys franchise, “L.A’s Finest”. Sony Pictures Television is behind the show and chose NEM to unveil the show at a prestigious screening. Alan Cumming, the star of the series Instinct, will be another special guest that visitors will have the chance to hear from in the panel room. Instinct is distributed internationally by CBS Studios International.
NEM boasts eight interesting panel discussions, with the very top of the TV industry taking part. The panel “Time to Think Locally and Act Globally” will raise the question if the region should join forces in order to be competitive through co-production and higher budgets.
At “On Demand Platforms and TV Channels – Mutually Exclusive or a Great Combination” speakers will discuss why Pay TV channels are becoming on-demand platforms and vice versa. The global TV content phenomenon will be the subject of a panel called “Did the Soap Opera Bubble Burst or is it Still Growing?”. Each subject was carefully selected by NEM, to cover all industry novelties.
