How HBO Crafts Stories About Real-Life Characters
The New Republic - Beatrice Theatre
Richard Plepler, Chief Executive Officer of HBO, discusses the search for the unexpected future of media with Franklin Foer, Editor of The New Republic, and Jill Abramson, Executive Editor of The New York Times.
These are hardly boom times for serious media. The business model for the industry is unclear; the market often rewards the crass and vulgar, while slighting the outlets that produce well-crafted, weighty art and journalism. What will emerge on the other side of media's transition into its next era? How will media be produced and consumed? Will the underlying values of the media change along with its underlying economics. Please join The New York Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson, HBO Chief Executive Officer Richard Plepler, and The New Republic Editor Franklin Foer as they discuss the future of media.
