Jennifer Daly, president at US unscripted specialist Critical Content, speaks with Nico Franks about how the pandemic has given rise to innovation in shot-from-home shows led by A-listers, like Kevin Hart’s Celebrity Game Face, and the struggles facing smaller independent US producers.

Daly, who previously founded Storage Hunters maker T Group Productions before Critical bought the business 18 months ago, sits on the executive committee of US non-fiction producers association NPACT and was among the speakers at the annual SeriesFest event, which held its first virtual edition earlier this month.

US public broadcaster PBS is facing challenges, battles and opportunities on a number of fronts, programming through and around the coronavirus pandemic, the Black Lives Matter movement and the forthcoming US election, all at a time of political pressure on pubcasters and tightening budgets.

Bill Gardner, VP of programming and development, is one of the PBS commissioners charged with navigating all of this, and speaks with Clive Whittingham about his strategy for the rest of the year and into 2021.
