ATLANTA - Feb. 16, 2017 - PRLog -- Ioannis Skiotes of Yanni Enterprises Inc., with decades of experience, has joined Trial 2020 as Co-Producer/Development Director.  This is a key strategic victory for a show with ambitions to hit national and international networks.

"Hard marketing data continues to yell loudly. The content, the message of the show, is attracting tens of thousands of interested viewers. Larger tests would show interest in the millions without a doubt," Abraham Doe the show's creator says. "Skiotes will fill a vital role that will formulate and oversee structure around episode scripts. Continuity, consistency, crispness, suspense, tempo, urgency are part of the eclectic mix of elements for this timely, entertaining, but societally necessary material. With those, there is no question reputable crew and cast will attach and follow."

The theory is gaining traction.  A top international director stands ready to direct the first season's episodes. He brings a massive captive market and network. An aspiring Atlanta producer with notable credits has indicated appreciation for Trial 2020 and stands ready to join Skiotes, with whom he has a personal and working relationship.

Atlanta has become a highly attractive city for television production. "There is a constant, exciting calendar of  film and television projects alive here. A choice to produce episodes in Atlanta carries rich access to well-known, proven cast," the producer shared. A seasoned Los Angeles native has been offered the top domestic distribution role.
