More than 10 years ago Sky triggered a qualitative growth and an innovation of the language of TV series. Its original productions – which started with “Romanzo criminale” – showed that it was possible to make a new kind of TV series in Italy. The Masterclass “Sky Original Series: The New Generation” will discuss all creative, editorial and methodological aspects during the selection and development process of original Sky productions, constantly looking for quality and original details to be competitive on the international stage.

Do true stories exist? How can we adapt a screenplay to actual events, involving the public and honoring the true story at the same time? In his Masterclass, Scott Z. Burns, trusted screenwriter of Steven Soderbergh, will analyze this issue, focusing on the challenges and the pitfalls a screenwriter can use to faithfully describe something that has really happened without letting entertainment take over the truth. Scott Z. Burns will analyze some scenes from “The Report”, a film starring Anette Bening and Adam Driver, presented at the last Sundance Film Festival.
