Starting a TV show

Lets say someone like me had an idea for a tv show, and this tv show might be a great fit for someplace like Spike tv. how would one go about getting into that business? anyone?




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

Go to FOX... they'll put any crap on. LOL. j/k I'll look into it but before submitting anything you would probably be wise to get the idea registered/copyrighted in some way so they don't try to screw you.

Namaste

To the times I'll never remember, with the friends I'll never forget.

Here's how to create, protect and pitch your original ideas or scripts for the television industry.
Steps

1. Research current televised programming to educate yourself in current trends or opportunities.
2. Study the professional advice given by the television industry (see the external links below).
3. Read the current reports on format and concept protection given by the industry (which can also be found through the links below).
4. Write a descriptive but brief outline of your idea; usually 3-5 pages for reality-based concepts, and 2-5 pages for scripted projects.
5. Register your project with the Writers Guild of America for time-stamped proof of creation.
6. Submit your television project and idea to the TV Writers Vault for review and consideration by over 70 leading production companies and networks.
7. Receive electronic proof of review for your protection by the TV Writers Vault, and track any companies reviewing or request to contact you for the purchase of your concept.

Talk to CHGOTHNDER about his show.

Probably your best bet is to start on Public Access, make a name for yourself, and hope you get discovered. Network as best you can. Someone in the industry will have to help you along.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."
