I Want To Pitch an Idea to B.E.T.
 

 
it seems like alot of shows on B.E.T. are low quality so it shouldnt be that hard for me to get a show on their network.....

now who would i contact and do i jus tell them my idea or am i suppose to write it down and fax it to someone and how much do you think i would get paid for being a creator of a television show??

i think the show would be successful but i dont want to give the wrong people my idea and end up getting my s**t stolen and making some yuppy rich


any suggestions.....keep the white jokes to a minimal please im very serious about this

I've got a great idea for BET or even MTV. A show where you play music videos. I feel like that would fit on a channel that was originally dedicated to music.

First and foremost don't send them anything without a disclaimer because they will use your idea and not give you credit. Also have a confidentiality agreement signed before disclosing any ideas.

a show that just plays videos isnt very entertaining when any music video you could ever want to see is on the internet

why would they fix something thats working reality tv works for them

and they still have channels that only play videos like vh1 soul and mtv jams

As someone working in the flim industry i gotta tell ya i admire you ambition. But my dude. You got dillusions.

First, the odds of a producer PMing you about your pitch on Boxden is next to impossible. Wont happen. But, lets live in fantasy land and say you do get a meeting at BET for some post you made here.

Then the next thing you gotta realize, everyone and there mama has a good idea for a show and producers hear them all the time. So you meet some TV Producer, he takes your meeting, then what? You tell him your idea? What if he asks questions. Wants to know more? It takes more than a simple pitch once you're in the door. You need to know every intimate detail about the show you want to create, and make whats called a show bible.

What's in that bible will be a overall synopsis of the show, summaries of every episode in the first season, character bios, locations, and ideally the pilot script clocking in at either 22 or 44 pages.

That is the first step and essentially the heart of the show. Until you have that done, everything else aside from figuring that out, is a waste of time.

They should do a show about getting real racists and giving them a change of "Heart."

U know, like getting a white supremacist to work as a janitor at the museum of tolerance.

Or going inside jails to k!ll the racism. That show would not only be good but should get a nobel peace prize too.

lol

Nobody says they have to sign it to look at your script. Just tell them you have a great show concept and you should have a 2/3 sentences to give an overall synopsis. If they're interested, then they sign disclaimers and peek at it, juggle the idea and see if they want it still. And a disclaimer hasn't stopped Hollywood from stealing ideas before, just so you know.

Homie you need to flesh out the idea completely and then let the execs butcher it for "ratings".
