For Producers

With over 4000 hours of the highest quality programming, PBS Distribution (PBSd) reaches audiences in 175 countries through multiple platforms including direct to consumer SVOD channels, digital download and streaming services, theatrical and inflight entertainment, DVD and Blu-ray sales, and international licensing.

WE ARE SEEKING PROGRAMS FOR DISTRIBUTION

PBSd is uniquely positioned to support filmmakers working in public television. Our team works closely with producers and their projects as early in the production process as possible, allowing us to sell more effectively across platforms.

Our extensive expertise plays a major role in obtaining co-production financing and pre-sales for high-end programs, and we collaborate with producing partners to design custom platform windowing strategies to maximize exposure and financial return.
