[Past Event] How a Stay-at-Home Culture Is Changing the Entertainment Industry
If there is one industry at odds right now, it’s entertainment. While one survey found that 47 percent of Americans had increased their streaming time around the onset of the stay-at-home orders, the live aspect of the industry has faced incredible challenges. With TV shows and movies now bringing actors back to sets, what does the future of entertainment look like and how quickly can it be turned around now for at-home viewing? Join Worth for an intimate discussion with experts on how the industry is shifting to meet growing demand amidst pandemic-related restrictions and what’s next in entertainment.
Guest Speakers: Tracy Christian, President of TCA, David Eilenberg, Chief Creative Officer, ITV America and Kathleen Entwistle, Private Wealth Advisor at Morgan Stanley Private Wealth Management / Moderated by: Juliet Scott-Croxford, CEO of Worth

Tracy Christian is a veteran talent agent with more than twenty years in the industry working in both the literary as well as talent space. Past clients include Oscar winners Melissa Leo, Octavia Spencer, Mo’Nique, Emmy and Golden Globe winner Elizabeth Moss. Within the lit space she’s personally responsible for more than 1,000 hours of on air primetime programing.
In 2011, she opened TCA, a Los Angeles based boutique talent agency representing writers, directors, producers, and actors trained by some of the best theatre schools around the globe.
“What we do extraordinarily well at TCA is marry art, commerce, and future vision. We’re repping talent that we’re insanely passionate about and keeping the list intentionally small so we can give the same attention as a manager and have come to be respected because of our aggressiveness deal making skills.”
Additionally, Tracy Christian lives in Los Angeles and is a supporter of the American Cinematheque and is a board member of the Hollywood Central Park.
