Is your life a living sitcom?

Are you a larger-than-life character who works hard, and plays even harder?

Do your friends always tell you that you should have your own reality TV show?

If so, then we want to hear from YOU!

We are currently looking for the next hit show

looking for amazing characters with TONS of personality. If you think that’s YOU, then drop us a line below.

Tips for submitting:

1- SHOW PERSONALITY! Why would your life make a great TV show? What is it that makes you different from everything else we’ve seen on TV before? We’re looking for HIGH-ENERGY!

2- WHO ARE THE CHARACTERS? Please list in detail everyone that would play a role on the show. Your mother, your best friend, your weird neighbor. . . Reality shows are ensemble programs, full of great characters. We want to hear about all of them!

3- SHARE CRAZY STORIES! Remember that time Dad drove a monster truck into the neighbor’s backyard during their cocktail party? Yeah, we want to hear about that!

4- TAKE VIDEO! Text submissions are great, but what we really love to see is some video (we are on television, after all). Make a short video of your crazy life. And don’t just sit in front of a webcam telling us your story. SHOW US. Shoot it on your phone, taking us around your world. BE ACTIVE! (Remember what we said about high-energy?) When you’re done, upload that video to a private YouTube / Vimeo channel and send us the password or just attach it below. See how to make a video below!

PLEASE STAND OUT and HAVE FUN! But above all, don’t try to copy what you already see on TV. We want you to show us who YOU are.

Here are some categories of what we are looking for.

  • Larger than life characters in worlds we haven’t seen on TV before
  • Extreme Weight Loss and Weight Gain.
  • Super Rich People / Families
  • Death Defying Jobs
  • Doctors Doing Extreme Surgeries
  • DIY / Building Space. Think HGTV
  • What are you Rehabbing? Homes, Business, Lives. You tell Us!
  • General Casting / What Did We Miss?

Please include all your information on the form below. This is very important, so that we can get back to you if we like what we see. We promise that we read EVERY submission.

Policy Concerning Submission Of Ideas And Other Materials

The Idea Factory. wishes to acquaint all those who have asked to submit materials, including ideas, proposals, marketing or promotional plans, program formats, literary material, video and musical compositions, with the problem that faces us in reviewing, investigating, inspecting and evaluating these materials.

Much of the material that is now being submitted embodies materials, suggestions or ideas substantially similar or identical to those which have been developed by our staff or which have been submitted by others. Further, we may begin using material similar or identical to yours, which we received after the date of your submission. Accordingly, we feel that we can receive and review materials only if it is left up to us to determine whether we have in fact used these ideas and to decide what compensation should be paid in event of use.

Because of this, it is our policy to require the signing of the enclosed release before considering any material, proposals, marketing or promotional plans, program formats, literary material, videos or musical compositions.  Please read the release carefully and return a signed copy along with the material you wish to submit

portion of the Material unless you and TIF have agreed in writing, signed by both parties, concerning your compensation of such use, which compensation will in no event be greater that the compensation normally paid by TIF for similar material from comparable sources.

  1. You agree that any claim, controversy or dispute arising hereunder will be resolved by binding arbitration in the County of Los Angeles, State of California, in accordance with the rules and regulations of the American Arbitration Association then in effect, provided that said arbitration will be heard before a single arbitrator experienced in entertainment law and business practice, and judgment upon the award of the arbitration will be entered and enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction.
