Submitting Proposals

If you have a documentary project you would like Knowledge Network to consider for development, production or as a second-window, please send the following info to

  • A one or two-page outline describing the story/subject, the creative approach and point of view.
  • A producer statement that explains how you and your team are connected to the content and why you are the ones who should be telling this story.
  • Bios of your key creative team.
  • Demo of previous work.

We will review the material and get back to you within 4 weeks.  If we are potentially interested in moving forward with your project, we will request a budget and financing scenario corresponding to the current phase of your project (development or production).


Evaluation Criteria

Here are the factors we consider when reviewing a project:

  • If the subject matter, perspective or treatment are new to Knowledge Network.
  • Authenticity/originality of the filmmakers’ approach/vision.
  • Connection of the creative team to the story being proposed.
  • Relevance and appeal to viewers.
  • Track record and experience of the creative team.
  • Viability (financial, access, approach) of the project.

We receive more proposals than we can support and highly recommend that producers familiarize themselves with our programming on our linear channel, website or apps before contacting us.

Please note – we do not commission or assist in the completion of dramatic projects, short films (under 20 minutes), student films, corporate videos, gallery installations, sponsored films, web series, or podcasts.
