A Spy Among Friends: LA Screening

Program Showcase

by Cynthia Littleton | Variety | May 20, 2022

The L.A. Screenings were one of many entertainment industry traditions that were put on hold by the pandemic. After all, an event that brings a few hundred international TV buyers to Los Angeles to huddle for a week in small screening rooms is pretty much the opposite of social distancing.
