CITV invites pitches for new content

CITVCITV has outlined its shopping list for new programmes as part of a tranche of programming supported by a BFI initiative. 

The Young Audiences Content Fund (YACF) is managed by the BFI and awards government funding for UK-produced children’s television. 

CITV is looking to commission from UK producers in three areas of live action content: live action scripted series (comedy or drama), live action physical game show/challenge show and live action ‘make and do’/craft series. 

Paul Mortimer, ITV’s director of digital channels said: "CITV is thrilled to support the Young Audiences Content Fund and to be working in tandem with the BFI on an initiative that will deliver more high quality, UK-produced kids television than could be achieved without it.

"We look forward to taking receipt of ideas that will enlighten and entertain our core audience of 6-12yr olds."
