Quotable

“Live television, we felt like it was the holy grail. If we could create content that could be appointment viewing, and it’s live, it’s that added value. You want to experience it as it happens. People don’t typically tune into live events after the fact. It’s how do we create content that’s DVR proof, that the audience is going to show up and watch and want to participate in the viewing experience. It’s very rare now that content, whether it’s unscripted or scripted, has that community viewing experience.” — Big Fish Entertainment founder Dan Cesareo on CTAM’s “Thinking Out Loud” podcast
