Daniels duo, Silverman at Banff TV fest


Executive producers Greg Daniels (NBC's "The Office") and Ben Silverman (ABC's "Ugly Betty") and Lifetime Television entertainment division president Susanne Daniels will headline the Banff World Television Festival in June, organizers said Monday.

Toronto-based Achilles Media Ltd., which organizes the annual market and gabfest in the Canadian Rockies, said the three will be on hand to present informal "In Conversation" talks or master classes for industry delegates.

In addition, Banff also will host a master class by Mike Clattenburg, the Halifax, Nova Scotia-based director and producer of "The Trailer Park Boys," a hit Canadian TV series recently produced as a feature film, with Ivan Reitman ("Ghostbusters") producing.

The 28th Banff World Television Festival is set to run June 10-13.
