Show Studios turns TV couch potatoes into TV couch creators

It’s crossed every TV viewer’s mind: My idea for a television show is so much better than what I’m watching right now. Well, New Show Studios -- based in Pittsburgh, Pa, -- gives the frustrated TV-viewing public a chance demonstrate their brilliant programming ideas. In conjunction with SFM Entertainment, a company with more than 40 years of syndicated-television experience, New Show Studios produces and creates script ideas into viable concepts that are packaged in a way that networks like Bravo, Lifetime and the History Channel understand.

According to President Anthony Valkanas, New Show Studios pitches your concept by taking your ideas and creating materials that appeal to networks: “The idea is submitted by everyday people with show ideas [and] we determine whether we can work with the idea based on our criteria. We then move forward to development work. We [examine] demographics and similar shows’ content, context, storyline, archetype … all the information that we need to move forward, credibly, to the next step.”

New Show Studios is a production company that has “a unique method that takes a drawing on a bar napkin and puts it into a format with graphics, creative writing and video that communicates to network executives in the language they speak.”

The team at New Show Studios uses show ideas to produce a “show concept package,” which consists of cover art (movie poster), companion brochures, overviews, synopses, and a two to five minute pitch real, which combines “many different mediums from stills photos to interviews to narrations and video graphics, which melds it together into a format that tells the story, which gives SFM the tools that they need to communicate to the network execs.”

Valkanas has some words of advice for tomorrow’s TV creators. “People need to understand that you have to have a desire to do something with your idea. Anybody can have a show or idea and not do anything with it.”
