Seeking aspiring and experienced TV-makers who need a platform to fund, broadcast, and monetize their TV shows.
Mobcaster is "a revolutionary new way of developing television." By combining an online crowd-funding platform dedicated to original television shows with the video-streaming portal to showcase it, Mobcaster creates a destination site where new TV shows can be created, viewed and picked-up profitably.
Mobcaster has already facilitated the funding of five full pilots and two complete TV seasons, and has aligned strategic relationships with industry partners like TiVo, ICM Partners, and others to help its shows find homes on networks and other major distribution outlets.
"In the existing world of TV development, it's almost impossible to get a show sold, and even harder to get a show on air. Mobcaster democratizes the process, making it possible for the first time ever to create a TV show entirely independently, with full control and have it monetized. It's why Mobcaster is proud to have earned the title as one of Backstage's Digital All-Stars of 2012. It's time to make your TV show a reality. Visit www.mobcaster.com/create_tv to get your TV show pitch up and running."

Compensation & Union Contract Details
Through Mobcaster, any aspiring TV maker can pitch a TV show free of cost. If the TV makers have audience support and reach the funding goal they themselves have set within the timeframe they themselves have established they get to produce their pilot. If they don’t, no money changes hands and no TV show is produced. With their pilot in hand, they can then go through the same process to fund a season. Shows successfully funded for a season (or more) can then broadcast on Mobcaster TV where the TV makers can get compensated for their work, sharing 50/50 in advertising revenues, and potentially jump off to TV networks and other major distributors.
