When the coronavirus pandemic forced many physical productions to hit pause, it also invigorated other parts of the entertainment industry. Join us for a conversation about adapting an intellectual property, from researching and understanding the framework within which you are working, to creating something fresh and original within that established world. Industry creatives will discuss what writers look for in IP, what producers look for when hiring writers, and the unique challenges and benefits involved.

This panel is presented by Rooster Teeth.

Must have an AFF Producers or Conference Badge for entry.
