PROGRAM SUBMISSION PROCESS:
History does not accept unsolicited submissions but works regularly with distributors and talent agencies. Once a producer or other creative has secured an entry at the network, a treatment should be accompanied by a pilot or presentation tape if the project is centered around characters or other key talent; otherwise a concept can be properly conveyed on paper only.
COMPETITION: Discovery Channel, National Geographic Channel, A&E, TruTV
