How are TV shows and Broadway plays financed, and how has the financing of entertainment changed as consumers’ viewing habits have shifted? Those are some of the questions under discussion at a lunch hosted by ACG New York’s Women of Leadership at the Yale Club on May 25. The event, Spotlight on Leaders in the Entertainment Industry, features a fireside chat with Christina Spade (pictured) and Jane Dubin, moderated by Mergers & Acquisitions editor-in-chief Mary Kathleen Flynn.
Spade is the CFO of Showtime Networks Inc., which began airing a revival of Twin Peaks on May 21. Spade is responsible for all financial matters relating to the company’s businesses, and oversees the finance and strategy for the network's divisions including budgeting, planning, forecasting and accounting of all the business segments.
