Jane Root to speak at SPAA Conference

Producer Jane Root has been confirmed to speak at this year’s SPAA Conference.

Root is the CEO of UK-based Nutopia, an independent TV production company with a focus on factual series of all types, as well as factually-inspired drama. She is responsible for the US 12-hour drama-documentary, America: The Story of Us, which premiered in April on the History Channel. Root even persuaded Barack Obama to deliver a presidential introduction to the history series.

Root champions the notion that big ideas provide a genuine global exchange of formats and ideas, but with those big astounding ideas in short supply the challenge ahead is for program makers to take on huge territories and create new hybrids.

The SPAA Conference will be held at the Hilton Hotel in Sydney, November 16-19.
