Once again MG ALBA, S4C and TG4 are proud to unite in this the second year of the Celtic Formats pilot scheme.
They are inviting original unscripted factual entertainment ideas with must see, compelling and surprising content that taps into the zeitgeist and will appeal to intergenerational audiences alike across the Celtic nations and beyond.
The ambition is to discover a refreshing, distinctive and authentic format that the Celtic Nations can be proud of and that will be talked about across the three nations. The ideas should show creative ambition and heart that will touch the emotion in some way, be it laughter, tears or surprise yet shouldn’t feel overly formulated or forced.
MG ALBA (for BBC Alba), TG4 & S4C will equally fund a pilot to the total value of £15,000 with the aim of developing a value for money format that has the potential to create a successful, adaptable and returnable series which can be produced independently in all of the Celtic regions and beyond.
Proposals should include:
A logline, format treatment, indication of proposed talent and of how the development funds would be used to produce a worthwhile pilot which can be used as a basis for a returnable series.
The best ideas will be shortlisted and invited to pitch to the three broadcasters in January 2017. One idea will selected to receive the £15,000 development funding to create a pilot for delivery by early April 2017.
Deadline for submissions: midday, Wednesday 21st December 2016.
