CANNES, The traditional role of a host of documentaries or news shows, or "presenter" in the parlance of British television, is over says Liz Warner, founder of Betty productions, the highly successful producer of reality TV which was purchased by the Discovery Networks two years ago.
Warner is a former commissioner of programming for both Channel 4 and the BBC. In this video interview, she talks about the creative process of program creation and rise in digital consumption by younger viewers. She describes the medium of her production house as "factual entertainment."
We spoke to her at the Discovery Networks area at the MIPTV conference.
