GARY FOSTER IN CONVERSATION WITH SANDY GEORGE

Conference Hall 1, Level 2

CREATIVE GENIUS & CHAOS

From producing iconic rom- com Sleepless in Seattle, where Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan charmed the world, to taking an uncompromising look at homelessness, mental illness and creative genius in The Soloist, a trio of Marvel hits and developing the TV cult hit, celebrating misfits across six seasons in NBC’s Community, Gary Foster says his job has been “to find a way to create parameters so that creative genius can operate with freedom, inspiration and spontaneity without creating chaos”. He talks with Sandy George about his 30-plus years in the business, from Nora Ephron to Donald Glover and everything in between.
