Netflix Hosts Hollywood Bigwigs at Internet TV Summit in Utah

Netflix is staging on Thursday its first “Internet TV summit,” a private affair attended by an array of entertainment-industry titans at a swanky resort in Utah.

CEO Reed Hastings and chief content officer Ted Sarandos are hosting the event, which is being held at the Amangiri luxury resort in southern Utah.

Execs in attendance, according to sources, include Warner Bros. chairman-CEO Kevin Tsujihara; Sony Pictures Television president Steve Mosko; Discovery Communications CEO David Zaslav; Universal Filmed Entertainment Group chairman Jeff Shell; DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg; Imagine Entertainment chairman and co-founder Brian Grazer; and Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer and vice chairman Michael Burns.

HBO and CBS were extended invitations to the Netflix summit, but neither had execs there.

Netflix confirmed the event is taking place but declined to provide details, including who’s attending. “This is a one-day discussion on the future of Internet TV, bringing together our friends from the entertainment and technology industries,” a company rep said.

The meet-up is intended to be an informal gathering, similar to Google Zeitgeist or Amazon Campfire, which the e-commerce giant has held in Santa Fe, N.M., attended by dozens of novelists.
