We’re excited to announce that John Wooden, Executive Producer and GM of Team Coco, has joined the speaker roster for Lost Remote’s LA Show taking place on December 13th, 2013.
Since Conan O’Brien joined TBS, his digital team – Team Coco – has been responsible for some of the most innovative and memorable social TV activations, including a Tumblr devoted to Conan crying, an award-winning iPad app, and Occupy Conan, an episode of the show that was entirely crowd-sourced.
Wooden manages these promotions and we had the opportunity in February to interview him about Occupy Conan. When we asked Wooden how one gets to be the GM of Team Coco, he responded: “I’m pure digital media trash. I’ve been in various digital media roles since 1995, starting on the agency side. Among other things that I’ve run are Maxim Online, jokes.com (part of Comedy Central), and then for Turner Broadcasting.”
Wooden will join our panel, “The Future of Social TV: What Networks are Planning for the Spring and Summer TV Season,” where panelists will present a breaking piece of news in social TV for their networks, followed by a brief Q&A on how to run a successful campaign.
