TV Co-op Program
The TV Co-op program invites TV stations from different countries to send crews to the U.S. to film original documentaries and news features on jointly agreed-upon topics. TV co-op participants receive funding from the Department of State to cover expenses related to the production, which include domestic airfare, hotel and food allowances, health insurance, and miscellaneous expenses. It is expected that the TV teams will pay for their own international airfare. TV co-ops are true cooperative ventures in which U.S. Embassy Public Affairs Officers, TV producers, and representatives of the U.S. Department of State Office of Broadcast Support jointly develop proposals for original production in the U.S. An American producer hired by the Department of State escorts and helps the TV crews while in the U.S.
