DreamWorks Animation’s chief executive officer, Jeffrey Katzenberg, was recognized as Personality of the Year earlier this week during MIPCOM television market.
In his keynote speech, Katzenberg says: “There’s never been a time filled with so much new and unique opportunity for the world of television.”
He cautions however that opportunity involves risk.
Certainly, DWA has taken several risks with numerous acquisitions over the past year including Chapman Entertainment, Classic Media, and the YouTube multi-channel network Awesomeness TV, as well as a content deal with Netflix.
He believes there will be “exponential growth in Internet-delivered content, but that linear TV will do just fine.”
