Job opportunites

Deadline Friday 11th March, 2016

A new commissioning portal has been designed by TV3 to cater for all programming proposals including those that fall under the BAI remit. Also included within the new portal are clear guidelines, latest news and a step-by-step process for submitting and sharing ideas with the broadcaster.

The TV3 Group consists of two main channels, TV3 & 3e. These channels also operate and broadcast online service 3player and across a plethora of new digital platforms.

core audience is 15 – 44 predominantly female.

Originated content is at the heart of their schedule, offering new insight, connection and dialogue with viewers.

3e is their sister channel, which services a younger 15 – 25 demographic. The aim in the coming months is to increase focus and attention into new Irish productions and talent on the channel.

What type of programming works well on the channels?

As the main channel in the group, TV3 is a key target of commissioning strategy at present. Ideas must focus on the particular sensitivities and values which the brand defines. Driving new audience and broad mass appeal are key to this approach.

TV3 has three main pillars across which they commission (and indeed acquire) content in the first instance:

PILLAR 1 – LANDMARK PROGRAMMING
PILLAR 2 – EARLY EVENING
PILLAR 3 – ORIGNATED FACTUAL & DOCUMENTARY STRAND/SERIES
