Welcome to Producer Resources! Here you’ll find information and resources to help you get answers to production questions, support for your work and ideas for distributing and promoting your show. Have suggestions? Send us an email and we’ll work on adding answers and resources to these pages.


Attend a four-hour open house at MNN’s 59th Street studios and get professional, one-on-one production guidance from an MNN Production & Facilitation staffer. Troubleshoot any aspect of the process - editing, sound, graphics, etc.- and receive intensive hands-on training. These labs are held several times a month and are open to all active MNN community producers. Stay tuned for upcoming session dates!


Get a new, 30-second promo created for your MNN show! We air promos on all MNN channels, host them online, and feature them on our social media pages. These videos help grow your audience by piquing viewers’ interest in your show. Stay tuned for upcoming dates!




Access the handbooks for MNN classes ahead of your class so you have them to consult during the sessions.
Every quarter, Manhattan residents can apply for a regularly scheduled series. You will need to provide us with a unique pilot episode and proof of residency in order to be considered. Every episode must contain 60 seconds of uninterrupted pre-roll and end-roll and be either 28-minutes or 58-minutes long.

Handing out a flyer with information about your show and online profiles can do wonders to increase your show’s exposure and broadcast your voice.
