Research: A kids-first approach to writing and producing tv
 with  9 Story

Since the early days of Blues Clues, Research has been at the forefront of the television production process for 9 Story Media Group’s creative team.  Why do they do it? How do they do it?  How do the writers and producers use the feedback?  Is it worth it? How do you know if research is right for your own project? Join the 9 Story research, writing and production teams for an in-depth discussion on research, a critical ingredient to the studio’s series. 9 Story Media Group is a leading creator, producer and distributor of award-winning animated and live action content for audiences around the world.

From development right through to consumer products, 9 Story Media Group is one of the world’s leading kids and family content companies. Home to Blue’s Clues & You, Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, Charlie’s Colorform City and much more. In this panel, WIA members will gain a unique insight into how 9 Story approaches making content through research and how they can move forward with their own projects.

Panelists Include: Sarah Wallendjack (VP, Production & Development) Rachel Kalban (VP, Research & Curriculum) Jess DeMonsabert (Research Director) Noriko Louison (Research Manager) Jill Turner (9 Story Head Writer) Halcyon Person (9 Story Head Writer)
