Dawn Ostroff Pitches Conde Nast Content At MIPCOM
While Condé Nast staffers were facing cuts -- as reported in another item today -- Condé Nast Entertainment president Dawn Ostroff, "a veteran of conventional TV," was talking up
the digital evolution in TV and pitching the company as a fount of potential ideas for movie and TV content at MIPCOM, "the international television market and trade show," writes Erik Maza.
However, "it was an odd pitch for this particular crowd.... those stories that had begun in the publisher’s magazines — she noted 'Brokeback Mountain' and 'Eat, Pray, Love' — found their way into the hands of Hollywood producers without any help from Condé," continues Maza. "That was again the case in May when Kirkwood-Elliot optioned a feature in Vanity Fair."
