This week A+E Networks will present what it is referring to as its "first ever" Content Showcase. It's a 30-minute event introducing a number of new and returning series and specials coming in 2021 to A&E, HISTORY and Lifetime. Don't confuse it with one of those elaborate sizzle reels so common at traditional Upfront events. "The Showcase is more of an intimate look under the hood," said A+E Networks President of Programming Rob Sharenow. "It's a little more casual. It has a bit of a different feel ... a little more like talking to a partner rather than a sell. There isn't as much pomp and circumstance in and around what we are showing."
