TV Programming

Development and production of audiovisual works

One of the priorities of MEDIA subprogramme is to increase the capacity of audiovisual operators to develop European audiovisual works with a potential to circulate in the EU and beyond and to facilitate European and international co-production, including with television broadcasters.

The objective of the Support to TV Programming is to increase the capacity of audiovisual producers to develop strong projects with significant potential to circulate throughout Europe and beyond, and to facilitate European and international co-productions within the television sector.

The scheme aims to strengthen the independence of television producers in relation to broadcasters, who tend to retain all rights and revenues, by providing funds to produce strong, competitive content with wide circulation potential in international markets and to encourage broadcasters to be involved in high quality programming aimed at wide international distribution and promoted to a wide audience. Particular attention will be given to projects presenting innovative aspects in the content and in the financing.
