PROGRAM SUBMISSION PROCESS
Go-ahead decisions are being made bi-weekly. The network welcomes ideas from established vendors, as well as new producers. Don't overdo it on a first-time pitch that could be, in their words, "shot down in 30-seconds." A tape is necessary if there is talent involved.
E-mail submission process is a part of it, before or after a meeting.
A one-page submission of the idea is sufficient.
