The April 12 Q&A sesh will be moderated by Los Angeles Times biz reporter Joe Flint. The confab runs April 10-15 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

20th is having a strong season with its frosh crop of series, including three bona fide hits: Fox’s offbeat tuner “Glee” and animated comedy “The Cleveland Show” and ABC’s family laffer “Modern Family.”
