Janson Media President Stephen Janson was featured in this month’s MIPCOM Edition of TV Real Magazine. In the article Janson discussed how the current economic crisis affects television programming and what key titles from the Janson Media catalog have been successful amidst the challenging times. Highlights from the Janson slate of programs include the Richard Bangs’Adventures with Purpose series, the Travel with Kids franchise, Independent Intervention, Warriors of the Night, and Harvest Eating with Keith Snow. Janson expressed optimism stating “The great global recession of 2009 hasn’t hurt television watching as far as we can tell. The world still needs entertainment and information. If anything we’re getting the sense that to reduce costs the networks are expanding their acquisitions slots, at the expense of more expensive commissions and co-productions.” For the full interview check out page 14 of TV Real Magazine’s October issue.
