An Invitation for Entertainment Ideas

28-Aug-2015

Elen Rhys, the Entertainment Content Commissioner welcomes proposals in three specific areas. All responses should include a lively two line outline of the programme ("strapline"), a brief description of the idea (no more than two sides of A4) and details of the main elements. Location, talent, sets or other key elements may be included.

1. A Saturday Night Entertainment Series:

S4C is keen to invite ideas from companies or individuals for a brand new series for Saturday nights. They should appeal to audiences that enjoy programmes such as 'Noson Lawen' which remains a popular and important brand for the channel, largely among the 45+ viewers and the most fluent Welsh speakers. The ideas must be entertaining and original that will principally attract the same audience. However this series will need to have its own unique identity offering something different, ambitious and exciting to the Saturday night line-up.

If you're interested, please send your ideas to the Content Commissioner Elen Rhys elen.rhys@s4c.cymru by 12.00 midday on Friday 2 October 2015. We will notify the production companies of our interest to discuss the ideas further by Friday 16 October 2015. We look forward to receiving your ideas.

2. A Loud and Exciting Community Series:

S4C is keen to invite ideas from companies or individuals for an ambitious community series which will create a decisive impact as a highlight in the schedule. It should certainly be wide in its appeal for peak hours, and should appeal to the whole family as well as a wide range of viewers of all fluency and ages, including audiences that would not normally tune in to S4C. The idea should aim to generate buzz and become a talking point. It could be a celebration of our landscape, our people or our traditions, the possibilities are endless. But at its heart it should have a passionate, exciting and confident vision that sets us apart from other channels.

If you're interested, please send your ideas to the Content Commissioner Elen Rhys elen.rhys@s4c.cymru by 12.00 midday on Friday 16 October 2015. We will notify the production companies of our interest to discuss further ideas by Friday 30 October 2015. We look forward to receiving your ideas.

3. A Popular Satirical Series:

S4C is keen to invite ideas from companies or individuals for a popular satirical series to appeal to the 30+ age range, for broadcast post 9.00pm. The nature of the satire should be uniquely Welsh but is could also draw on inspirations and content from further afield. It should be current in its appeal without being introspective in nature. We're looking for bold and original ideas that will bring satire to life on the channel - allowing viewers to laugh and, importantly, to laugh at ourselves. It would be an advantage to note the talent – the authors and the presenters/contributors which you have in mind for this idea.

If you're interested, please send your ideas to the Content Commissioner Elen Rhys elen.rhys@s4c.cymru by 12.00 midday on Friday 30 October 2015. We will notify the production companies of our interest to discuss further ideas by Friday 13 November 2015. We look forward to receiving your ideas.

We reserve the right not to commission any one of the proposals received.
