The Conscience of Television

By  |  1 Comment

At TEDxSiliconValley, TV executive Lauren Zalaznick thinks deeply about pop television. Sharing results of a bold study that tracks attitudes against TV ratings over five decades, she makes a case that television reflects who we truly are – in ways we might not have expected.

 In her industry-famous overhaul of Bravo, Lauren Zalaznick took a marginal arts-centered network and made it the destination for trendy reality TV. Now the tastemaker who brought us shows like Project Runway, Top Chef and the Real Housewives franchise is applying her savvy to the challenge of creating a truly multimedia network. As chair of NBC Universal Entertainment & Digital Networks and Integrated Media, Zalaznick is using digital media to fuel the popularity of traditional media.  Before her career in television, Zalaznick produced several award-winning indie films, including Larry Clark’s iconic Kids and Jim McKay’s Girls Town. She broke into TV as a senior executive at music channel VH1, pioneering the low-budget, simple and cunning Pop-Up Video. Her sharp pop-culture sensibility has earned her a place among Time’s 100 Most Influential People, Vanity Fair’s New Establishment and Fortune’s 50 Most Powerful Women.
