The Power of TV: Representing Climate Change Onscreen

April 18, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 10:15 am

Presented By: Television Academy Foundation

Special Thanks: Los Angeles Times and The Walt Disney Company

A recent USC-Good Energy study on Climate Silence reported that only 0.6% of all scripted film and television released between 2016 and 2020 mention the term “climate change” and only 2.8% of all scripts included any climate-related terms. The massive reach of film and television offers storytellers an incredible opportunity to break the silence.

Join this conversation exploring ways in which content creators can shed light on the topic and promote positive social change by incorporating more storylines on these issues in their programs, with:

Scott Z. Burns, Award-winning screenwriter, director, producer, playwright and creator of the Apple TV+ series EXTRAPOLATIONS

Anna Jane Joyner, Founder & CEO, Good Energy

Meredith Milton, Creative Director, NRDC’s Rewrite the Future

Peter Saji, Writer/Director

Moderated by:

Rosanna Xia, Environmental Reporter for the Los Angeles Times

Continental breakfast will be provided from 8:00am-8:45am PT.

Complimentary self-parking will be available in the structure adjacent to the Saban Media Center.

You may also take the Metro to the North Hollywood Metro Red Line stop two blocks north of the Television Academy on Lankershim Blvd.

This is a public event and Television Academy members as well as the public are invited to attend; each individual may reserve up to two tickets.
