There are two ways to have your show air on one of MNN’s community channels.
Producers (that means you) are able to submit a single, pre-produced show or apply for a regularly scheduled series. A single, pre-produced show is a show that appears just once on MNN; a regular series is an ongoing television show that appears regularly on one of our network stations.
Just remember, you cannot have a single show and a series airing at the same time. We also give priority to Manhattan residents and all submissions must meet our technical requirements.

A single show is a pre-produced broadcast that appears only once on MNN. Submissions must be in Mini-DV, DVCAM, or DVD format and must contain 60 seconds of uninterrupted pre-roll and end-roll. We air single shows within one to two months, depending on their length. A single show can be any length. Anyone can submit a show to MNN by following the directions below and adhering to our technical requirements.

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. All applications are due within the two weeks before the quarter deadline. Every episode must contain 60 seconds of uninterrupted pre-roll and end-roll and be either 28-minutes or 58-minutes long.
