A+E Networks Sets Development Initiative with New York Television Festival

A+E Networks is launching an extensive development and talent scouting program with the New York Television Festival designed to open doors for promising writers and producers.

Dubbed “Create 360,” the initiative has three components that will take place in conjunction with the fest, which runs Oct. 19-24. The fest aims to serve as a showcase for TV projects from independent producers and aspiring creatives.

The Lifetime Writers Project invites submissions from writers for a chance to become one of five Lifetime Fellows and attend the fest as Official Artists. The five fellows will receive a $1,000 grant and the chance to meet with Lifetime execs during the fest.

The Unscripted Pipeline program invites producers to submit ideas, including character sketches and sizzle reels, for unscripted series to execs from Lifetime, A&E and History. Each network will pick one idea to put in development.

NYTVF Pitch invites any of the creatives selected as Official Artists of the festival to pitch ideas for A+E Networks cablers’ FYI and H2.

The Create 360 program builds on A+E Networks’ longstanding support of the NYTVF.

“A+E Networks has seen recent success in the scripted area, and with the demand for talented storytellers across the television landscape at an all time high, we are proud that they are extending their partnership with us beyond the terrific foundation of unscripted development that we’ve worked on with the networks for many years,” said NYTVF founder Terence Gray.

Details about the submission process for the Create 360 programs can be found on the festival’s website.
