Joke Productions: Reality TV Submissions and More…
Looking to pitch us a reality TV show, unscripted television project, or documentary series? This page will answer all your questions about your reality TV submissions (and more) to our company.
Terrific. Have your reps contact our agents with your reality TV submissions, documentary series pitches, or other unscripted TV concepts. You can find their info on the Joke Productions contact page.
New Producer? No Agent?
We were once in your shoes. It’s frustrating to be motivated and talented, but just starting out. You have no one to consider your pitches.
That’s why we created a submission process here at Joke Productions.
However, when we started receiving reality TV submissions there was a problem. Early on we learned that most people submitting show concepts didn’t know how to pitch.
So we created a free resource to help.
How to Pitch a Reality Show
Check out our free ebook How to Pitch a Reality Show. It’s the most in-depth resource on the web about pitching unscripted television.
A free PDF is available for those who share the page. Or you can read the entire ebook for free right on the page.
But I Want to be On TV…
Think you should have your own show? Skip right to this section discussing How to Get Your Own Reality Show. It discusses how to approach us when you’re interested in being on an unscripted television show as opposed to producing one.
For bonus points take a weekend and listen to every episode of our make reality TV podcast Producing Unscripted.
It’s also available on iTunes.
The podcast covers every aspect of creating, pitching, selling, and producing unscripted television (and will only improve your reality TV submissions or unscripted TV pitches.)
Once you’ve got your head around the basics, sign up for our newsletter. Then follow the directions to pitch through our reality TV submissions portal.
We usually respond to pitches from the portal in three to six weeks. It can take longer when we’re in production (which is often).
Reality TV Submissions and Unscripted Concepts Only
At this time we’re not accepting submissions for scripted television shows or screenplays. We’re only looking for reality TV submissions or pitches for documentary series or unscripted television.
Like most production companies, we don’t take unsolicited submissions. Do not send your unscripted television concepts or reality TV submissions to us without following one of the two steps above.
