How do you surpass 2016? A year ending with more than half the American public owning a smart TV set or smart-making TV device. A year ending with more than 450 original scripted series running on broadcast, cable, multicast and next-generation services like Hulu, Netflix and Amazon. A year scripted and non-scripted TV became more cinematic, harder to classify and deeper in quality as well as quantity. A year during which Apple TV went from about 1,000 applications to nearly 9,000, incorporating several thousand games, ordering pizza from Papa John's, sports/entertainment tickets from StubHub, services like AirBnB and Zillow and, near the end, any product supplied by Amazon.com. A year with more ventures organized to expand the output of content created by people of color and women of color. A year when talent out of nowhere could use equity crowdfunding for the first time to finance their TV content or technology ventures.
