NATPE’s inaugural LATV fest celebrating the smallscreen gets underway in earnest tomorrow. I’m planning to start my day on Wednesday at Hollywood & Highland moderating a panel, "Blowing Up the Boob Tube: How the Digital Frontier Has Changed our Relationship with TV," that aims to make sense of what all of the new digital options available to the masses mean for the old-fashioned business of television. (Wish us luck!) Panels, seminars, NATPE Boot Camp (TV producing/pitching/selling 101) sessions are going on all day Wednesday at H&H, and all day Thursday at House of Blues. Here’s Variety’s story from a few months back on why NATPE decided it was high time this town had its own TV industry-themed panel sesh-fest.
