Protecting your TV idea
So you’ve had an amazing idea but you don’t want anyone to steal it… not even us!
To stop us talking to anyone else about your idea you’ll need us to sign an NDA (Non Disclosure Agreement)
THIS IS OPTIONAL – gassproductions will treat your idea with total confidentiality and will not discuss your idea with anyone else.
- You can download a template NDA from gov.uk here or a gassProductions version here (right click, save target as)
- Just fill in your section and sign it, then scan and send it to us email@example.com.
- Mark the subject field of your email “yourname” NDA.
- We’ll sign it and send it back. Now we can only talk about your idea with you.
Explaining your TV idea
When submitting a proposal please include the following, keep it as short as possible.
- A short synopsis of the programme idea
- What’s the hook/premise?
- Who will be in it?
- What will be the unfolding action and what’s at stake?
- How is the programme extraordinary or unique?
- What’s the setting and location?
- In what style will it be shot, written and edited?
- Is it a series or one-off, number and length of episodes.
Don’t be scared to get creative
This is the video pitch that Neil Burnie put together for Ocean Vet. Now we’re not asking you to swim with tiger sharks, but things like this grab people’s attention and make your idea stand out from the rest.
