E4 REALITY COMPETITION - WIN DEVELOPMENT CASH!

WHAT YOUNG PEOPLE WANT: THE LIVE PITCH

E4 are offering indies who have never made a series for E4 before the chance to win a pot of development cash in a new Edinburgh TV Festival session ‘What Young People Want: The Live Pitch’.

This session will invite four indies to pitch a Reality Show idea to a panel comprising of 16-34’s and E4 commissioning editors.

Members of the audience aged under 30 will vote via the Festival App for their favourite idea.

In a Mr & Mrs moment, the commissioning editors will reveal their favourite idea… but will their choice match the audiences? Or will they choose the least popular idea?

We won’t stop there. E4 Controller Karl Warner has put his money where his mouth is and is offering a guaranteed minimum of £5K development money to the best idea. In return, the winning indie will make a commitment to hire a young person from The Network or Ones to Watch to help develop the project.

E4 REALITY SHOW BRIEF:

– THE IDEA NEEDS VOLUME AND SCALE

– THE CONCEPT NEEDS TO BE ORIGINAL – WHAT’S ‘FIRST’ ABOUT IT?

– THE CAST SHOULD FEED FRESH – WHO WOULD BE SURPRISING BUT STILL ENGAGE A YOUNG AUDIENCE?

– DON’T LIMIT YOUR IDEAS TO DATING, IT COULD BE ENDURANCE, TALENT OR A SOCIAL EXPERIMENT.

For your chance to win development cash, and hopefully a commission, submit the title of your idea and up to 200 words describing it via email to EITF@thetvfestival.com by 17th May, 2019.

Ideas will be assessed and shortlisted by members of the TV Festival’s talent schemes, The Network, Ones to Watch and the Festival advisory team.

By submitting ideas indies acknowledge that similar ideas might be submitted by other companies and the decision of who to invite to pitch lies with the TV Festival and is final. Indies also acknowledge that similar ideas might already be in development with E4.
