DC UNIVERSE recently announced a new initiative to harness the creativity and talent of DC fans and unleash a new unscripted concept and video series for the first-of-its-kind digital subscription service. DC UNIVERSE, in association with Ideas United, kicked off DCYou Unscripted at its New York Comic-Con pop-up event headquarters, DCUHQ, inviting emerging creators and dedicated fans alike to submit unscripted series ideas, drawing on all things DC.
The DCYou Unscripted project is open for entries through November 18 to any Ideas United network member who is over 18 and a US resident. Any creator is welcomed to easily and quickly apply to join the iU network. During the submission process, talent and fan enthusiasts alike will be able to submit their unscripted/reality video series ideas ranging from game shows to game play to hot food and hot takes. The top 10 entrants chosen will travel to Los Angeles, California to spend a day with industry professionals to refine their concepts and have the chance to pitch their concepts in-person to a panel of DC executives and entertainment luminaries. Three finalists will move on to have unscripted pilots produced by Ideas United, with one final entrant receiving a series order which will launch exclusively on DC UNIVERSE.
“The DC UNIVERSE mission is to create a place for fans to dive deeper and express their fandom and this is a continuation of that aim,” said DC UNIVERSE Senior Vice President and General Manager, Sam Ades. “As we head into our second year we’re excited about this new initiative – empowering fans to bring their unique and diverse voices to DC Universe in this very ambitious way.”
Additional submission details and requirements along with more program information and highlights over the coming months can be found at the DCYou Unscripted dedicated site, DCUunscripted.com.
“Working with DC UNIVERSE allows us to highlight the tremendous talent of the next generation of creatives and give them an unbelievable opportunity to share their ideas with the world,” stated Abe Mohammadione, Vice President of Creative & Production, Ideas United. “We are thrilled to embark on this journey with the team at Warner Bros. Digital Networks and can’t wait to explore all the ideas and concepts submitted, meet and mentor emerging talent, produce pilots and a series, and capture all the behind-the-scenes action from the first submission to the final premier.”
