Returnable Franchises for RTE2
04 Apr 2018 :
The Notorious Conor McGregor
Factual is seeking new proposals to build on and broaden the recent slate of successful documentary output on RTE2, ideally in the space of returnable franchises.

The channel has recently carried a number of strong factual offerings, including The Guards, The Notorious Conor McGregor and Padraic Nally: After the Headlines. These programmes brought muscular storytelling skills to a range of intriguing characters, precincts, and themes. RTE is now looking for a series of new topics and stories, which can bring significant mainstream audiences to RTÉ 2.

Propositions that offer escapist or stirring stories will be of interest, along with other factual ideas, which say something important or powerful about contemporary life. One-offs will be considered, but they are particularly interested in propositions that can go to series, based on access to fascinating locations and/or charismatic characters.

Tonally, these can range from lighter factual, and colourful contemporary impulses - for example in the spheres of Property, Money, Relationships and Health - to more sober or gritty aspects of modern life - for example in the area of law enforcement, or public controversies.

Tonally, the aim of these commissions is to either offer dramatic documentary series with great story-telling and which have humanity at their heart, or to provide RTE’s audience with lighter more escapist and fun stories and formats which provide insight into life in modern Ireland and compliment what they offer on RTÉ ONE post-watershed.

Budget range: €80,000- €90,000 per hour (Maximum) for RTÉ2

RTE asks, in the first instance, that producers submit ideas into the eCommissioning system:

under the programme category "Factual Sunday 21:30" & "Factual Monday 21:30"
