We are focusing on young-skewing reality series, which fall into 3 three categories.
Stripped Reality Events - eg. Love Island and Big Brother
These are fast turn around series that involve viewer interaction (ie. voting)
They should create a shared viewing experience, with lots of talk-ability and should drive conversation on social
Both the precinct and format need to feel distinct and original.
Constructed Reality - eg. The Only Way Is Essex, Real Housewives of Cheshire, Bad Chefs & Loaded in Paradise
These are post-produced shows.
Character and narrative led
They can be precinct based such as The Only Way Is Essex and Real Housewives of Cheshire, which are real-life soap operas or set on location, such as Loaded in Paradise and The Singles Table, which are more formatted.
Access Reality/Obs Doc series - eg. Billie & Greg: The Family Diaries, Kelsey Parker: Life Without Tom
Intimate and authentic access, filmed in an obs doc style
Driven by an event (such as a wedding or a pregnancy) or a broader subject matter (bereavement, health issues)
Email Amanda firstname.lastname@example.org and Pete email@example.com directly with ideas. These can be top lines, or a more worked up treatment, with casting tapes and sizzles. Development money is available.
We aim to respond to all submissions within about four weeks but please note we only accept submissions from production companies
