"The Kings of Television Are The Creatives"
With that tag line, Kevin Spacey stakes out his view of how television has been good and how it can get better. His James MacTaggart Memorial Lecture is well worth watching for an insider's view of how creative people in television can and should behave. As someone who has made the transition from the Old Vic to traditional television and movies and now to a major online-only dramatic series he's seen a lot and is very articulate in putting it together. And I can't resist quoting this line: "We (meaning himself and Netflix) have learned the lesson the music industry didn't learn - give people what they want, when they want it, in the form they want it in at a reasonable price and they'll more likely pay for it rather than steal it."
