NYTVF announces fest highlights

Festival unspools in Gotham, Oct. 22-27

The NYTVF today announced highlights of the eighth annual New York Television Festival, with events from the CW, MTV, Fox and BAFTA, Digital Day, Development Day, a pitch contest by sponsor Samsung and screenings of the 52 entrees in a independent pilot competition.

Fest unspools in Gotham Oct. 22-27. at the School of Visual Arts Theatre in Chelsea, Tribeca Cinemas and 92YTribeca in lower Manhattan.

Opening night features the premiere screening of the CW’s mid-season show “The Carrie Diaries” with star AnnaSophia Robb, exec producer Amy Harris and writer/exec producer Candace Bushnell.

Head writers of New York’s “The Late Show with David Letterman,” “The Daily Show,” “The Colbert Report” and “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” will discuss the “politics of funny” at a late night writers’ panel. And the housemates of Jersey Shore will join MTV execs for a final-season series retrospective.

Fest will also spotlight Fox’s Tuesday night comedy lineup with talent from “New Girl” and “Ben and Kate.”

Samsung Electronics America, a NYTVF development partner, will host a live pitch event, the culmination of its Second Screen Storytellers Competition, where five finalists vie for a $300,000 production budget to create a short series for Samsung Smart TVs.

“We can’t wait to share these events with the aspiring artists, industry insiders, and TV fanatics that celebrate with us each year,” said NYTVF founder and executive director Terence Gray.
