Franklin Leonard discusses the reason why he created the Black List to allow working industry professionals to find and share scripts.

Excerpt from the 2016 Produced By: New York panel The Future of Producing.

Producing can be an unpredictable job. Even producers who have built their careers developing and distributing stories can be vulnerable to shifts in the media landscape, especially when new platforms threaten to make traditional business models obsolete. In this session, a collection of producers, executives, and professionals on the front lines of content creation discuss the years ahead, and the ways in which they’ve adapted their creative and commercial strategies to account for the changes to come.
