The Avenir Format Show

Operation and Production

The Avenir Format Show is built around debates between 2 or more informed and opposing specialists, dealing with evolving fields important for the audience, i.e., Workplace, Education, Medicine, Travel and many more. (Longer list available in The Avenir Format Show Production Guide).

Producers acquiring The Avenir Format Show select their most significant topics, their hosts, their debating guests, their social media for audiences’ interactions and whatever details are most important for their viewers.

The Avenir Format Show is designed to minimize Production costs making the show accessible to most stations in the world, using existing News studios, existing equipment, local archives and mostly existing staff. Few functions may need to be created, one trained Host, few researchers that can be local students or young professionals supplied by local NGOs working with The Avenir Format Show..

Programming

The Avenir Format Show is composed of 3 independent segments that can be run individually or combined in suitable schedules based on your News Programming grids.

As an example, the creators of The Avenir Format Show recommend to Programmers to start airing their series with a One-hour Special debating at least 4 or 5 topics deeply affecting audiences’ future, possibly selected through their own social media questions. This first show, packed with local celebrities, is built to raise public awareness.

Programmers may then continue to explore such changes with a 22-minute weekly version featuring ONE major local topic, this time fully analyzed in a single debate with more specialists. And for Programmers having to cover even more topics, we recommend adding a daily 15-minute version, easily embedded in many news editions, also featuring ONE topic replacing the long debate by live audience participation via social media.

The Avenir Format Show works in any combination using 1, 2 or the full 3 shows configuration. For example, Programmers may also select only one show like a monthly One-hour Special, a weekly 22-minute or a daily 15-minute.

Acquisition

The Avenir Format Show is available for FREE to any developing country or territory outlet, in order to avoid upfront fee.

In developed countries, The Avenir Format Show is available for a fee calculated on the number of versions desired. Fee details will be spelled out in the Memorandum of Understanding or the final contract signed with acquiring Producers.

Running Fees

At first airing time, the fee to air The Avenir Format Show is 10% of the Production cost for all broadcasters or streamers.

After the first month of airing, the Producers of the local Avenir Format Show pay a percentage of their advertising revenues.

For any developing country or territory News outlet, this percentage is 10% of their revenues. For developed countries, the percentage is 20%.

The Avenir Format Show Library

The Avenir Format Show runs a library of written and video material that provides direct Covid-19 information, basic knowledge and Academic help to any News outlet in need of precise information during the production of their own Avenir Format Show.

Producers may address their requests to the Library, for example to verify some data or facts, to obtain quotes, segments or interviews from Organizations like The World Health Organization as well as any relevant information like studies and scientific or medical accepted reports.

The Avenir Format Show Library may also manage good stories aired by Broadcasters and Streamers willing to share their best segments from top celebrities, or scientists or noticeable guests’ interviews to footage of interesting situations, scenes or actions, and more.

Any production team of a local Avenir Format Show may propose their best segments to any interested producer.  The Avenir Format Show Library, if solicited, may effectively manage such exchanges for the benefit of all outlets. Also, the Library can receive donations, equipment, Cloud storage and working space. It will be run by professionals, may use volunteers and may provide scholarships.

And finally, The Avenir Format Show Library will sign agreement with partners willing to help enhance the production of locals Avenir Format Shows, for example trailers, logos, musical segments, info-cartoons or any short pieces to give special looks to their local shows. It will seek agreements with companies, organizations or other rights-holders, able to provide such short segments for free to Developing Nations’ Producers or for a minimal cost to all other producers.

Global Sponsors

The Avenir Format Show buyers are encouraged to help find Global Sponsors willing to support more than one broadcaster or streamer at a time and attract outlets not equipped to find Global Sponsors.

When airing their shows, the initial finders of such Global Sponsors keep all revenues generated from their own broadcast.

However, for outlets which are not Sponsors finders, there is a possibility to use such Global Sponsors donations and advertising by splitting such revenues in FOUR equal parts:

  • 25% go to the initial Global Sponsor finder
  • 25% go to the local outlet having aired Global Sponsors’ messages
  • 25% go to The Avenir Format Show development
  • 25% will be reserved for Non-profit organizations contributing to fighting the Covid-19 consequences, selected by The Avenir Format Show on proposals made by Broadcasters, Streamers and Global Sponsors.

Exclusivity of The Avenir Format Show

Television and Streaming markets are usually based on the exclusivity rule, where only one Broadcasting, Streaming Company or Organization may acquire the rights to any show in the considered territory. The Avenir Format Show is more than just a show. It’s built to help mankind to overcome the pernicious effects of Covid-19 anywhere people are suffering and raising questions about their possible Future.

Therefore we decided that The Avenir Format Show may run on any number of stations in any country or territory, as long as it’s produced and aired by a recognized local News Station, on the air or streamed on the Internet. Exactly like any Evening News bulletin may run in many cities of a country.

Even more: The Avenir Format Show may air with different topics, different Hosts and different debating guests in different cities located in the same country. This may happen when important topics are differently perceived in different regions, especially when they are geographically, economically and culturally different.

The Avenir Format Show time-life frame

For the optimists who are sure that the Covid-19 will be history by the end of 2021, our answer is double.

First, we heartfully hope that you are right.

However, helping billions of people to fight the irruption of a Future they did not like nor requested is also part of our mission.

Second, everything prepared for the Covid-19 by The Avenir Format Show International team will be useful for any upcoming new pandemic as well as any other major threats to mankind, in particular Climate Change and Artificial Intelligence.
