Members of the Television Academy selected 25 professors from colleges and universities nationwide to participate in the prestigious program.

Rosdail will gain the latest information on the television and content development industries from top entertainment professionals during a southern California seminar Nov. 5-9.

The seminar will include panel discussions with broadcast and cable networks’ programming and scheduling executives, legal experts and cutting-edge content creators. Private studio tours and trips to top Hollywood production facilities to meet with producers, observe production, and get first-hand updates on the latest in television technologies are also part of the program.

First launched in 1987, the Foundation’s annual seminar offers faculty a comprehensive program designed to enhance knowledge and in turn enrich learning environments.
