Pivot Launches ‘Pivot Creative Collective’ Initiative

LOS ANGELES (May 20, 2014) – Pivot, Participant Media’s Millennial-targeted TV network, announced today the launch of a development initiative called “Pivot Creative Collective” (PCC). The new program offers an avenue for creative talent and emerging voices to develop new programming for the network’s audience. Starting today until June 9, those working behind, and in front of, the camera have the opportunity to produce short-form scripted programming (drama, comedy and animation) that might ultimately make its way onto Pivot’s original slate. The announcement was made today by Holly Hines, Senior Vice President, Scripted Programming for Pivot.

“We know that Pivot’s audience wants to hear from their peers and be entertained by programming that also says something about the world we live in,” said Hines. “Through the PCC, we look to build a home for fresh voices and individuals who are passionate and take risks.”

The PCC in collaboration with Windsor McKenna is designed to foster deep connections between Pivot and creative community. The program provides access and resources for individual applicants and serves the network’s goal of delivering programming for the generation, by the generation. Participants must submit their work between now and June 9. Selected artists will work in collaboration with Pivot’s team to develop and potentially launch a new program on the network.1
