Hitting the Target: Anticipating What’s Next in The World of Entertainment:
In an ever-changing entertainment landscape, WWE has consistently evolved their content strategy, sharing their stories with emerging platforms and untapped audiences. Whether it’s the in-ring classics such as Monday Night Raw and Friday Night SmackDown; unscripted programs which reached new demos, such as E’s Total Divas, Total Bellas and USA’s Miz & Mrs.; or scripted feature films designed for a global audience, such as Netflix’s The Main Event, WWE’s content feels both of the moment and ahead of the curve.

Joining the Female Quotient in a panel discussion at AW2020 moderated by WWE Announcer Charly Caruso, Head of WWE Studios Susan Levison and WWE Superstar The Miz will discuss how WWE has led the charge in adapting its content to meet the needs of the changing media landscape. Plus, the two will preview a brand-new game show hosted by The Miz and Maryse Mizanin, “Brawl in the Family,” a hilariously action-packed family competition, full of insane challenges, fun surprises—and a huge cash prize for the winning family.

Speakers:
• Charly Caruso, WWE Announcer (Moderator)
• Susan Levison, SVP WWE Studios, WWE
• The Miz, WWE Superstar
