NATPE Reveals 2018 Tartikoff Award Recipients


NATPE’s 15th annual Brandon Tartikoff Legacy Awards will be presented to executive producer Greg Berlanti (Arrow, Flash), Telemundo and NBCUniversal International Chairman Cesar Conde, actress Jane Fonda (Grace and Frankie), TBS and TNT President Kevin Reilly and actor Tom Selleck (Blue Bloods).

The selected honorees will receive the award at a special reception on January 17, 2018, at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach. The Brandon Tartikoff Legacy Award is presented each year during the annual NATPE Miami Market and Conference, which will next take place under the new theme A Changing Industry in a Changing World from January 16 to 18, 2018. The 2018 Tartikoff Legacy Award recipients are recognized for exhibiting passion, leadership, independence and vision through their diverse work in being a part of the creation and distribution of content.

Named in honor of Brandon Tartikoff, the award was created to acknowledge a select group of television professionals who have demonstrated the highest degree of excellence in their field.

“Each of the Tartikoff honorees is a leader in their field and a legend in the industry,” said Andy Kaplan, the president of Sony Pictures Television Networks and chairman of the board of NATPE. “We are thrilled to celebrate the substantial achievements of Greg Berlanti, Cesar Conde, Jane Fonda, Kevin Reilly and Tom Selleck at this year’s event in Miami.”

“These five extraordinary individuals have had such distinct, significant impacts on the entertainment industry,” added Lilly Tartikoff. “In choosing to honor those with careers defined by the same zeal and dedication that Brandon held dear, this event continues to be one that he would have found so meaningful. I am honored to congratulate each of these brilliant recipients of the Brandon Tartikoff Legacy Award.”
