By Manhattan Neighborhood Network
Ever dream about having a regularly scheduled show on TV? MNN welcomes any sort of programming you want to make, whether it's comedy, talk shows, interviews, community issues, or even fitness and cooking shows!

Apply July 16 through July 27, 2007 for a show for the Fall Quarter!

To apply for a series, submit a Series Timeslot Request form and pilot tape to the Programming Department (Room 205) or the Tape Library. Download and fill out a Proof of Residence form and submit it with a photocopy of your photo ID and proof of residency. Only one tape per series application. These guidelines apply for any quarter that you wish to submit a new series for.

We highly recommend that you submit tapes in Mini-DV and DVCAM. The Fall Quarter (this quarter) is the very last time we will be accepting VHS tapes. Your program will look and sound better on MiniDV tape. As networks and television stations are going digital, MiniDV will become the standard in video submissions. MiniDVs are also becoming more affordable. There are many places in Manhattan and online to get affordable DV tapestock...

This summer…you’re what’s on MNN... en Español

By Manhattan Neighborhood Network

Notice those little English and Spanish flag buttons on the upper right-hand corner of the page? Or at the bottom of almost any of our pages?

MNN's website has gone bilingual. Now you can find most of our content in both English and Spanish. Clicking on the flags in the green area up top or on the bottom right of each page will switch your menus to English or Spanish, whichever your preference. We hope that by adding the bilingual feature we can better serve our Spanish-speaking audience.

The Schedule, News Stories, Press Releases, and Events will still only be in English.
