TV / Video Download -- Connecting Hollywood and Madison Avenue

The TV/Video Download community offers regular reviews, analysis and interviews with television and video content programmers, producers, on-screen and behind-the-camera talent, video content developers, creative agencies and the executives who manage the content business. This community features one of the media's best known and most respected television and video critics, Ed Martin, who shares his perspective, insights, thought leadership and criticism.  Ed reports live from the Winter and Summer Television Critics Association tours in Los Angeles as well as the annual Upfront week presentations in New York City. He is joined here by veteran television reporter Simon Applebaum, who specializes in coverage and analysis of all Upfront and NewFront presentations and other media industry events; entertainment writer and celebrity interviewer Steve Gidlow, who covers the television beat in Los Angeles, and critic Ainsley Andrade, a cord-never who streams his way through everything and provides his own unique take on current television and video programming.
