    I have had an idea for a television reality show for quite some time now. It is not a clone or record-pasta. Nothing exists like it. I ran it across a few of my close friends and everyone agreed it would be a bad ass show. Now, I know nothing about television networks or even where to start. I was wondering if someone here had some insight on who to talk to or where to begin. I am from Canada if that helps.

    I don't even have the idea written out yet. I will once I get pushed in the right direction. Who do I attempt to contact and how would I protect myself of someone running off with my idea?

    I don't wish to share my idea publicly. Although I could be wrong I seriously think that if correct action was taken it would be possible for production.

    Thanks

    Without much info, I couldn't possible comment on weather it was a good idea, or who to point you to in the business.

    I work with MTV in my local area ok UK.

    Trust me, if this is a good idea, you've still got a huge journey to go yet!

    thats all the advise I can provide you on your OP.

    Best of luck.

    Should I lawyer up and let them deal with it? Should I talk to a local network? Is there a specific person or department within a network that deals with show pitching?

    i do business with a major hollywood producer (he did several famous movies) and i can tell you that just having a "great idea", according to your friends, is step one.
    getting it done without getting ripped off is the real trick.

    the entertainment industry is overflowing with sharks. :(

    try going on Linked In, they have several groups for people in the industry and you may find help. you can even meet larry wilcox on there.

    i have a great idea for a reality show, too. and it would definitely get watched but i doubt i will ever bother with it.
