MEDIA MASTERMIND KEYNOTE: COURTENEY MONROE, CEO, NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC GLOBAL NETWORKS

17 Oct 2017, 11:20 - 12:00

Grand Auditorium, Palais 1

Language:
English

From her position as CEO of National Geographic’s Global Networks, Courteney Monroe will look at the group’s scripted content, its strategy, and why its high-end slate of new drama resonates with a global audience, dramatising factual events in an innovative and unique way.

To illustrate this strategy, Monroe will showcase some of National Geographic’s new dramas, including “The State”, a four-part event series on so-called Islamic State from award-winning executive producer Peter Kosminsky; “The Long Road Home”, based on Martha Raddatz’s book on the events of the “Black Sunday” ambush of US forces in Baghdad starring Michael Kelly and Sarah Wayne Callies; and the hit series “Genius”, executive produced by Ron Howard and Brian Grazer, starring Geoffrey Rush, Johnny Flynn and Emily Watson in season one, which chronicled the life of Albert Einstein, plus a preview of the just-announced season two, which will focus on the life of Pablo Picasso.

Finally, Courteney will discuss the network’s hybrid series “MARS”, which was also renewed for a second season. She will be joined at her keynote by some of the leading talent from these stand-out shows in an up-close and personal look at the strength of National Geographic’s slate.
