Scripps to Grant Up to $30,000 for Digital Series Winner from New York Television Festival

Media company's Travel Channel and Ulive Internet-video site team with fest to fund for travel-themed show

Scripps Networks Interactive’s Travel Channel and its Ulive online-video site will fund an original digital series with a budget of up to $30,000 out of submissions entered into this fall’s New York Television Festival.

According to NYTVF, the partnership with Scripps marks the first multibranded corporate partnership that includes a guaranteed digital series order.

“We look forward to identifying the next great storyteller and giving them the opportunity to share their unique POV through an original digital series,” Ross Babbit, Travel Channel’s SVP of programming and development, said in a statement.

Scripps plans to distribute the travel-oriented original series on Ulive, its digital lifestyle network that includes content from Food Network, HGTV and Travel Channel. The winner will be picked from NYTVF’s sponsored initiatives or the Independent Pilot Competition, which is open to independently produced, original TV pilots ranging from 4-22 minutes. All officially selected pilots in the IPC, which has a submission deadline of June 27, will screen at the 2014 New York Television Festival in October.

Other 2014 NYTVF development partners include A&E, which is guaranteeing at least $25,000 to produce a pilot for an unscripted series, as well as the U.K.’s Channel 4 with Lionsgate/Sea to Sky; Viacom’s Comedy Central; FremantleMedia North America; Discovery Communications’ Investigation Discovery; National Geographic Channels; AMC Networks’ SundanceTV and WeTV; and Turner’s truTV. All of the partners have committed to offer a development award to independent artists this year.

Submission info on the NYTVF’s development program is available at www.nytvf.com/deals.html.
