LA Screenings 2017 in pictures

Scripted-logo-460_2The LA Screenings are over for another year, with most acquisitions executives now back in their home countries assessing what shows they’ll be bidding for in coming weeks.

Each studio approaches the week in different ways, but all lay out the good china and buy in the fancy food in a bid to impress their guests that bit more than their rivals.

This means making the most of the LA climate, providing great American cuisine (the In ‘n’ Out Burger truck at the CBS Studios International screenings is something approaching legend among buyers), and having talent on hand to promote their new pilots.

Below, we look back at a selection of images from the LA Screenings 2017
