Ed Carroll has built some of the most successful brands in television and has overseen the development of some of television's most successful series, including Mad Men, Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, Inside the Actors Studio, and Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. He believes television has entered a second "golden age" in which TV is quickly replacing movies as the medium for thoughtful storytelling. Find out how shows are selected and tested for airing and where the TV industry is going next. There will also be a special preview of AMC's newest Series, Halt and Catch Fire, to premier Summer 2014.
