This is a proposal requesting for someone to speak on this topic. If you’d like to speak, leave a comment.

Objective

In India we are seeing the content on TV be still a lot of the Saas-Bahu serials and alternate content doesnt have much takers in the mainstream - TV channels or theatres. With a large population of the Indian audience interested in content from the west - mainly TV Series - YouTube as a medium to tap this market and propogate new rich content would surely be very interesting. While there have been some projects that have taken off the ground there is still a wide scope for growth.

Description

I would like to propose this to anybody who has an idea of how the system works, how to get onboard such projects in the production spehere and commercial aspects too.

Speaker bio

Anybody who has done online shows like “TheViralFeverVideos” or people working in such domains would be ideal.
