About Channel

ITV’s broadcasting business is made up of ITV1, the UK’s largest commercial TV channel in terms of audience share, and digital channels ITV2, ITV3, ITV4 and CITV.

Owned by ITV Plc, ITV’s content business also generates revenues by distributing ITV and third-party programming internationally, and through the sale of associated DVDs and merchandise.

ITV strive to provide event TV that appeals to a broad audience and is hugely talked about, from long running soaps, big game and talent shows, laugh out loud comedy to reality TV.

Programme Interests

The ITV Daytime schedule offers a wide range of lively, entertaining and engaging programming, reflecting the lives and interests of the audience across the day.

Long-term favourites including This Morning and Dickinson’s Real Deal play alongside new formats such as Who’s Doing the Dishes? and Secret Dealers. Content range is vital, from the lively debate and topical discussions of The Jeremy Kyle Show and Loose Women to exciting new formatted factual entertainment brands and the highly successful quiz shows, The Chase and Tipping Point.

Looking For

We are mainly looking for new shows at 2pm and 4pm. At 2pm we think factual entertainment formats will work well. No subjects are off-limits but they should be unmissable shows that you wouldn’t be surprised to see in peak. We're after shows that you would stay in to watch or set your planner for them. At 4pm, after the success of Tipping Point, we are looking for more entertainment-skewed ideas, whether game-shows or studio shows.

Great talent on and off screen is vital, as are peaktime values, humour, originality and diversity.

Daytime ideas should be compelling and exciting and must be able to sustain a long running series with the potential to return. All our shows are 60 minutes and need to strip across the week.
