Anthony Zuiker, creator and executive producer of “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” (and the producer of all “CSI” franchise shows), is going to deliver a keynote speech at our NewTeeVee Live conference that will be held in San Francisco on Nov. 13.
He will join Reed Hastings, CEO of Netflix, and Jason Kilar, CEO of Hulu, as keynote speakers for the conference, which will explore the importance of professional content as one of its major themes. Zuiker, as part of his talk, is going to discuss how the emergence of new platforms such as mobile and the Internet are changing the art of storytelling. He calls it cross-platform storytelling.
When I spoke with Zuiker earlier this week, he said he was working on games, digital books and video to create new kinds of entertainment experiences. He predicts that the future of content involves giving the user control, a sense of ownership over it.
See you in November!
