Sky’s MD of Content Zai Bennett is in charge of the Pay TV giant’s entertainment channels and its leading home film service Sky Cinema.

Bennett will reflect on the successes of the past year which have included Sky’s most successful original drama ever Chernobyl – a hit with critics and viewers alike and recently lauded with 19 Emmy nominations. Sky has also had its most successful year at the BAFTAs with wins for original shows including drama Patrick Melrose, comedy Sally4Ever and entertainment hit A League of Their Own.

Zai will discuss Sky’s recent announcement that they will be doubling investment in original content over the next four years with the launch of Sky Studios. He’ll explain what that means for shows across Sky Atlantic and Sky One and the UK’s only dedicated arts channel Sky Arts.

He’ll be joined on stage by Sky’s genre commissioners to share exclusive clips of upcoming shows as they discuss what they are looking for and what’s in store for the year ahead.
