Pitch to Us

Who do I contact for an ABC broadcast?

If you are seeking broadcast interest, please contact ABC Television.

Content Acquisitions

We welcome proposals at any stage of production from financing through to completed productions. We acquire programs individually, or as part of a catalogue of programs, for distribution in Australia and worldwide. ABC distribution includes television broadcast, online streaming, online downloads, DVDs, in-flight, soundtracks, audio products, merchandise, books, magazines, music publishing, live events, formats and footage sales.

The Acquisitions team also provide a central point of contact for producers and sales agents working with ABC Commercial. 


What we're looking for

We acquire programs whether or not they are scheduled for broadcast on ABC content platforms. 

Where there is an ABC broadcast, we work with ABC Television, ABC News, ABC Radio, ABC Digital Networks and ABC International to identify product and distribution opportunities to extend audience engagement beyond the broadcast.

Programs are evaluated according to their production value, their relevance and appeal to Australian and/or international audiences, innovation in the presentation, content or production techniques, and their brand building potential.
