How to Create a TV Show
Have an idea.
Every great project starts with a great idea. MNN is all about what you have to say, so find your voice & share your story.
Decide on a format
We have three kinds of shows on MNN:
Single: A "Single" is a pre-produced broadcast that appears only once on MNN. We generally air Singles within one week of submission. A Single can be 28-minutes or 58-minutes long.
Series: A Series is a weekly, bi-monthly, or monthly program. We generally schedule new Series shows within two weeks of submission. Every episode must be either 28-minutes or 58-minutes long. (Note: You must have the first episode of your show completed to apply for a new Series.)
Short-form: A "Short" is between three and seven minutes. Shorts will air in their entirety with other Shorts in blocks at specific times to be determined. MNN’s programming department will inform you of when your Short will air one week before it airs on MNN.
