The new initiative from Channel 4 is being run in partnership with The TV Collective and will see ten indies matched with Commissioning Heads of Department for unscripted genres in order to work together towards a commission. It’s a new approach from the broadcaster with the aim of working with more production companies where the main shareholders, the leading decision makers or the creative leaders comprise those from a Black, Asian and minority ethnic background. The initiative will be run twice over a two-year period.

Selected indies will benefit from:

– Financial support
– Idea development
– Access and support
– Expanded contacts
– Access to creative talent network
– Involvement of senior leadership
