“It’s the Creatives, Stupid”

Kudos to Kevin Spacey for that memorable line in his keynote speech at the Edinburgh International Television Festival. Wrote Georg Szalai in The Hollywood Reporter, Spacey “criticized ‘network people,’ Hollywood’s TV ratings obsession and the traditional U.S. TV pilot system, saying that the TV industry was at risk of losing its recent momentum unless it adjusts to new consumer habits in the digital age, takes more creative risks and puts creatives and content first.”

Bravo, Kevin!  The Reporter story is here.
