Getting a TV show considered is tough for TV insiders and almost impossible for everyone else unless you have an industry partner like a production company. I can't promise your idea will get made but you will get useful tips, advice and feedback. Maybe you've got a great idea for a drama, sitcom, game show, documentary or factual series. Let's hear it.

How to pitch a TV show

Would you like to send me your idea? It’s simple and free, just send me a short audio recording of your pitch. Record this as a voice memo on your phone. Try and keep this to around 3 minutes in duration. Then email it to pitch@steveblears.co.uk

If your pitch is selected for the podcast I’ll find TV executives, producers and presenters to hear it. Once they’ve offered their feedback, I’ll share that with you.

Use this template for your TV show pitch

“Hi Steve, I’m (your full name) from (your city and country) and I’ve got a great idea for a tv show.

It’s called…. (your TV show title, make it short and snappy, think about the length of titles on TV).

It’s about... (try and sum up your idea in one sentence, think headline, not full explanation).

So in each episode… (In another couple of sentences tell us about the format, who would take part? What they would do?)

I know this would make a great show because… (Why do we need to see this? Why would viewers enjoy it? Is it fun, dramatic entertaining for example.)

So that’s my idea, hope you like it.” (END there, don’t say goodbye)
