The conference “Being a Showrunner” will be held during the Venice International Film Festival, in occasion of the ITTV FORUM&FESTIVAL, an event which was created to promote collaboration between the Italian and the American audiovisual industries.


To this day, USA TV series production is unrivalled in terms of longevity of the shows and audience feedback whilst Italy has still a lot to learn.
