GoUSA TV looking for films

GoUSA TV is the premier travel entertainment channel. GoUSA’s award-winning content about US travel is distributed globally through multiple platforms, including Samsung TV Plus, Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire, iOS, Android, Reach TV, GO Transit, and others.


We are currently seeking episodic series, short films and feature films about the experience of visiting the USA. Content can be any format but must expose viewers to authentic USA

experiences, showcasing the people, places, culture and activities that make travel in the US

unique.


PROGRAMMING GUIDELINES:

• We accept video content from three-minutes to two-hours in length

• We accept episodic series, short films & feature films

• Although our current content is in English, we are currently looking for content in

English, Spanish, German, Portuguese, Korean, Japanese, Hindi

• Open to all formats (non-scripted, scripted, documentary, animation, reality, live...)

• Must be set in the USA

o Set in an otherwise unknown destination in the USA is a plus

• Content needs to prioritize storytelling over destination information – entertainment

first

• Highlights uniqueness of USA and builds a sense of place by featuring cultural elements

such as food, music, identities, traditions

• Shares something completely new about a well-known destination

• Great characters that viewers can get attached to are important

• Content does not have to be straightforward travel programming, but strong stories

about what makes the USA unique

• Areas of interest: road trips, food & drink, outdoor adventure, music, fashion, film, art,

street culture, sports, sub-cultures, local perspectives, diverse perspectives, obscure

places... although not limited to these areas

• We are not interested in content that is overtly political; GoUSA programming stays

away from politics and divisiveness

• We seek diversity in storytelling and welcome all voices

• If episodic, episodes should build on each other to encourage binge-watching

o Think of whole season as a layered, continuous story

o Stakes necessary; audience should have something to root for


OTHER CONSIDERATIONS:

• GoUSA TV needs two-year non-exclusive global VOD rights in order to distribute content

across GoUSA TV platforms

• Content creator must negotiate talent rights for films/series (voice and likeness)

• Content creator must provide key art for films/series

• GoUSA TV will provide list of digital assets required
