Submit your short segment to Local, USA


LOCAL, USA is a new 13 week, half-hour series programming initiative of WTTW and World Channel showcasing the best works of regional public television as well as independent producers, YouTube contributors, and other content creators, giving voice to the rich characters in every corner of America.

It’s a compilation show featuring a wide variety of human interest pieces, personal profiles, and short documentaries. Each week we’ll have a different theme. Some might be broad—time, unique characters, or cherished town traditions. Others might be more specific, like returning veterans, home-made art, or farm foreclosures.

We’re gathering together solid local stories from within the public television system and beyond that we can curate into one terrific show.

If you have produced a compelling short film, local program, or snapshot feature of a great story, a place, or an individual, we’d love to hear from you.

What are we looking for?

Completed segments or half hour specials produced locally cleared for national distribution. We are primarily seeking second window content but would be open to originally produced content for the web as well.
