Titan TV seeks scripts from students and alums

Rachel Paturi (’13), the new executive director for Titan TV, is looking for students and alums to submit screenplays for either TV shows or short movies that would be produced by people already involved with Titan TV or 9×9 film club, which is currently directed by Grant Flyte (’13).

Content is wide open. Reality shows, sitcoms, dramas—even animated scripts will be considered. Because Titan TV is a closed-circuit network there are no FCC restrictions on content, but programming manager Steve Lessaris (’12) will ultimately decide which scripts will be produced.

Two shows are already in the works for next fall. One is a sitcom (“A Common Misconception”) about a psychiatrist who’s just started his practice, and another is a sitcom (“The Guys Next Door”) about four guys who live in a dorm suite. Titan News is also scheduled. But there are a lot of time slots open for next fall, since one of Paturi’s goals is to reclaim channel five for all student programming, rather than the second-run movies that are currently being shown. Paturi said that the soft deadline for shows to be considered for the Titan TV fall line-up is at least two weeks before the semester begins. Submissions and questions can be directed to titantv@iwu.edu. For more information about Titan TV, see their blog.
