[11/13/15] The Co-creator and Executive Producer of Degrassi will be hosting a workshop called How To Make TV That Lasts at the 2015 Children, Youth & Media Conference, which is “an idea exchange, training and development forum for youth screen-based media professionals.”

Since Degrassi has been around for a solid 35 years, Linda Schuyler might have a little experience in the category of making long-lasting television.  She will head the workshop on November 19th from 1pm-4pm at CBC’s Canadian Broadcasting Centre.

Schuyler will be joined by Executive Producers Sarah Glinski and Matt Huether, plus Producer of Extra Content Stephanie Cohen to discuss the following topics:

  • structuring a season
  • breaking an episode
  • keeping it fresh and authentic in an evolving broadcaster landscape
  • sustaining relevance for the youth audience in a dynamic digital universe
