Thank you for your interest in collaborating with PBS NC. 


PBS NC is proud to showcase many hours of independently produced content across our multiple platforms, including PBS NC, PBS NC Explorer Channel, PBS NC Kids Channel, the North Carolina Channel, pbsnc.org, and other digital media outlets.


We are excited to work with the creative and passionate independent producers and filmmakers from across North Carolina and our region. 


Below you will find our online application, including a place to post your work sample and digitally agree to our submission release form. The information you provide will help us review your program or proposal.  


PBS NC receives many more submissions and proposals than we could possibly use across our platforms. However best efforts will be made to respond to all inquiries within six weeks of the submission date. 


Please note that PBS NC does not currently have dedicated funding for the production of independent projects, or the staff capacity to help you raise funds. Resources PBS NC can offer include: 

  • in-kind production and post-production services
  • distribution
  • consulting
  • letters of support
  • broadcast or streaming on our platforms

We are most interested in content that is directly related to PBS NC's mission of educating, enlightening, and inspiring our members and viewers across the state. Topics and areas of interest include:

  • arts/culture
  • lifestyle (travel, food, how to, entertainment)
  • documentary
  • history
  • public affairs
  • science
  • travel

Topics or types of programming we are not interested in include:

  • advocacy programs
  • commercial or promotional programs
  • religious programs

Independent productions may be presented as series, stand-alone programs, or folded into some of our current productions. PBS NC is also looking for digital content for unctv.org and our other digital platforms.


We look forward to reviewing your materials.
