- ITV’s Factual Entertainment team commissions for ITV primetime and for ITV’s digital channels. The network looks for premium, aspirational, optimistic, entertaining, dramatic, bold, exciting, big-hearted programming with broad appeal. ITV’s commissioning team is currently searching for high-volume returnable doc series and doc formats for 21:00 (9:00 p.m.). Programs may include access doc series with a new twist or something new to say, talent-led and authored pieces, landmark docs, compelling crime pieces, new ways of doing travel, factual entertainment formats as well as competitive formats.
Ideas presented to the network need to have broad appeal but also be fresh and innovative. The network needs scale, definitiveness and “noisy ideas” with “instant billings appeal” and “grabby titles”.
Program budgets are agreed on a project by project basis.
