Tinsel Town TV's Hasan to address Natpe conference

MUMBAI: The National Association of Television Producers and Executives (Natpe) announced the lineup of speakers for its annual conference to be held in Las Vegas at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Convention Center from 25-27 January, 2005.

Joining Ted Turner and FCC Commissioner Michael J Copps on the docket is Tinseltown TV CEO Sheeraz Hasan, who has made waves with his multi-award-winning show which reaches 500 million people in 130 countries.

Hasan has one of the most remarkable rags-to-riches tales in show business, and he will be telling the story of his journey- from selling milkshakes in his London cafe to hosting and producing a globally-broadcast television show in the space of less than two years. Moving rapidly from local to national distribution, to global on his newly-launched WebTV channel, Hasan has made history as the first Muslim to conquer Hollywood, and the secrets of his success will be divulged at the three-day conference that will be attended by every television executive in the world.

The circumstances that brought this dynamic young go-getter to the forefront of the biggest gathering of television movers-and-shakers is equally incredible: Natpe CEO Rick Feldman was on a flight from the UK to LA when he picked up a copy of the London Times newspaper and saw Hasan on the cover, accompanied by an in-depth article about his remarkable success story. Reading the praise lavished on Hasan by Creative Artists Agency founder Rowland Perkins, Feldman knew that here was someone who could inspire the younger generation to break into the television industry, and so he called Perkins immediately upon landing. Vouching for Hasan's dynamism and integrity, Perkins encouraged Feldman to book Hasan as a speaker, and put the two of them in touch.

Hasan will be speaking at 2:45 pm on 27 January in the Presentation Theater of Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas at the Natpe 2005 Conference.
