Independent TV Producers: How to Generate Money and Correctly Share Revenues
Everyone wants to get into TV these days, and everyone IS getting into TV these days! With demand on the rise, so is independent TV production and savvy international co-productions. The field is opening up and it’s more than possible to create, sell and be profitable on your own independent TV series. However, there are some crucial things to understand about independent TV that differ from traditional TV models. One big difference is revenue sharing and how to track and distribute money that comes in. This is absolutely essential for any television producer who’s working towards creating a profitable series.
Understanding revenue sharing in independent TV production models is so important because there are multiple pieces that can confuse someone who has never had experience in independent production. Deal terms may be unclear, and sometimes even conflicting if you’re not careful and aware of all the varying pieces and players! Even though revenue comes later, you have to understand it and plan for how everything fall together from the start.
