CEETV and TVBIZZ announce today their brand-new online screening event PITCH&PLAY FORMATCASE which will present the latest non-scripted formats ahead of MIPTV 2019.
Format creators, producers, broadcasters and distributors with original formats created/launched in fall 2018 or later can showcase one of their new titles to buyers free of charge during the event. The Official Partners of PITCH&PLAY FORMATCASE will have up to three formats in their lineup.
For each format, the participants must submit a teaser and full episode (if available), plus a short description.
Access to the PITCH&PLAY FORMATCASE online event will be free for all CEETV and TVBIZZ subscribers and also to anyone from the industry who registers on the website to screen the formats. The event’s newsletters presenting the formats will reach over 10.000 TV professionals.
PITCH&PLAY FORMATCASE will be held from early March until the start of MIPTV 2019 providing format creators and distributors an excellent opportunity to promote their new titles to thousands of buyers ahead of the market.
<em>“In recent years there has been an obvious shift to drama and scripted formats on the international market. Still, that does not mean that broadcasters are not hungry for non-scripted content which, however, has been getting less and less attention. This is why we decided to disrupt this trend and put non-scripted back in the focus of the international TV community with the launch of PITCH&PLAY FORMATCASE,”</em> says Georgi R. Chakarov, CEO of TVBIZZ Group.
<em>“We have already been in touch with independent producers and format distributors and they have reacted very positively to our new initiative and I’m happy to say that the first entries are already in, and we are looking forward to adding as many fresh titles as possible to show the industry that the non-scripted segment is alive and kicking. So, if you have a new show which you are taking to MIPTV, get in touch with us and we will help you promote it in the best possible way to thousands of buyers,”</em> adds Stanislav Kimchev, SVP Global Operations.
