If you are good at raising money, it is a good time to get into the content creation business. If you aren’t a member of the AMPTP, you could do a lot worse than start checking out who the networks are ‘free’ing over the next weeks.

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that ABC is only the first of the networks who are starting to terminate development deals in the wake of the WGA strike.

Given that networks will eventually get audiences used to watching TV shows via the internet on their TVs as families and groups, others might as well take advantage. If I ran a TV production company, I would start preparing a few non-network sponsored shows to distribute via the Internet.
