he 2017 realscreen Global 100 list, showcasing innovation, business acumen and, of course, great content, is celebrating 11 years in publication. As has been the tradition since 2006, the list is painstakingly compiled by our staff using input directly from you — the producers, network executives, distributors, agents and others working in the industry. We put the call out for your votes on the non-fiction and unscripted programs and documentaries that you believe were the most original, best executed and just plain best productions of 2016, and the production companies behind them. And, again, you’ve responded with enthusiasm.
Some of the names here will be familiar — established veterans who’ve graced many a Global 100 list. Other companies, meanwhile, have earned a spot here for the first time, winning you over with their creativity and expertise in everything from natural history and science to social-issue docs and reality television.
Some things never change, however. Our intent, always, is to provide a snapshot of the past year in global factual content. We trust you will enjoy the results. — Darah Hansen, managing editorRead More
