    Ever wondered if you could unveil your inner baking gladiator on Cupcake Wars or get your Grandaddy Seamus's seafood hut on Diners, Driveins and Dives! WIFV get's you there. It's usually difficult to get Network execs and super producers to your event. It's back to back meetings for these people. They are coming to WIFV on April 3, 2013 ... Jennifer Quainton, one of the superwomen of Scripps and Food Network and Michelle May, DC's own production evangelist. They open a window into the secret world of how a producer gets a TV show. Michelle May will give you the secrets on how to prepare to talk to programmers like Jennifer Quainton. What's not to like about this event. Do you have a show idea? Start making you list of questions. Leave no stone unturned! We can't let this opportunity slip by!!
