New York Television Festival Launches Production Arm, Pacts with A&E, Fox, History, Orchard

The New York Television Festival is expanding its reach with the launch of a production unit, fortified by development pacts with several of the fest’s longtime partners.

NYTVF Prods. opens its doors with deals in place to help this year’s winners develop projects for A&E Network, Fox and digital network the Orchard. History is on board to work with 2015 fest winners. Terence Gray, NYTVF founder and exec director, unveiled the launch Thursday during the 10th anniversary edition of the fest, which runs through Saturday at various venues.

“The idea of independent TV has greatly evolved since we created the festival 10 years ago, as new players have entered the market for original programming, technology has made it easier to produce, edit, fund, promote and self-distribute content and filmmakers have looked to TV and digital as strong, respected mediums for their art,” said Gray. “Now with NYTVF Productions, (winners will have)  further opportunities to achieve pilot and series orders.”

The A&E Unscripted Development Pipeline, Fox Comedy Alumni Program and History Unscripted Development Pipeline will work with the winners to create pilot presentations, while the Orchard GO Project will award a six-episode series, co-produced by NYTVF Prods. Gray will serve as an exec producer on NYTVF Prods. projects.
