FYI CREATIVE BRIEF

FYI is collaborating with Realscreen to give up-and-coming producers a chance to develop innovative, unscripted programming for cable’s newest emerging lifestyle network.

What FYI is looking for:

FYI is very excited about the opportunity to discover and work with new and emerging producers. The network is are seeking simple, self-contained formats in each of the following categories: FOOD, REAL ESTATE, HOME RENOVATION & DESIGN, PERSONAL STYLE & MAKEOVERS, RELATIONSHIPS, DATING and WEDDINGS. In addition, FYI is seeking breakout talent in any of these genres. FYI strongly encourages entrants to submit projects falling within these categories.

About FYI:

For your inspiration, for your imagination or for your innovation, FYI embraces an adventurous, personalized and non-prescriptive approach to peoples’ taste, space, look, social circle and more. FYI covers a range of stories and experiences that reflect how people actually live their lives today, not defined by just one passion or interest.

FYI appeals to an upscale audience that has been underserved on linear, but thrives online. This generation doesn’t follow a rule book - they are foodies, decorators, fashionistas, socialistas, bloggers, musicians, travelers and professionals, just to name a few. They live multifaceted lives and are not constrained by a single passion or interest, which is why FYI’s content resonates with them.

Whether it is a social experiment that discovers what happens when two strangers meet at the altar on their wedding day, building epic food creations, or living life to the fullest in less than 500 sq. ft., FYI is all about capturing the innovation, inspiration and imagination fueling our viewers.

To recap:

  • FYI is authentically optimistic, proudly hyphenated, perfectly imperfect and boldly improvised
  • Take-away and credibility are key: FYI’s viewers want to be entertained and find lifestyle content both useful and credible at the same time
  • Targets female-leaning, young dual audience
  • FYI is an upscale, aspirational brand
