Company of Distinction Keynote: Robert Greenblatt, Chairman, NBC Entertainment
Tuesday, June 12, 2018
9:00 AM - 10:00 AM
Inside the mind of one of the most influential television executives of the decade: Robert Greenblatt became Chairman of NBCUniversal in 2011, and took NBC from last to first in the coveted 18-49 demo, where it has been for five consecutive seasons. This season, NBC added the title of “America’s most-watched network” to that, with a lineup that includes This is Us, Will & Grace, The Voice and America’s Got Talent. Greenblatt also oversees Universal Television studios, which produce over 40 scripted and alternative series for NBC, Fox and Hulu, among others. A Golden Globe and Tony-winning producer, Greenblatt also ran Showtime and was a top executive at Fox. This is a can’t-miss conversation on what it takes to run a leading television network and studio in 2018.
