#NATPE/The Guide


With Midem, Sundance, and Grammy’s, January is still bubbling over with places to go, people to see, but the one stop shop for premium professional content is at the NATPE Market next week at Mandalay Bay on the Las Vegas Strip, where on the floor, in suites, and on panels programming executives, brand managers, and showrunners wheel and deal the good stuff, and mentor indies on sizzle reels and pitch packages. From Michael Eisner and Donald Trump, to Illeana Douglas and Justine Bateman, to the Modern Family cast & crew, Jonathan Prince, etc. there’s never a dull moment.  Here’s the guide to what’s going on:
