Quotes from Brightbulb Alumni

I was genuinely surprised at how much responsibility we were given, and that after only a few months, our ideas were being pitched to major channel execs!

As a person with a disability I received all the support I needed to achieve my full potential, and they were incredibly proactive in doing so.

Even if you never thought a career in TV was possible, if you have creative ideas, work hard, and love TV, you are exactly what they are looking for.

So, if you are passionate about TV, watch LOADS of it – and think you could come up with the next hit non-scripted TV format, then we would love to hear from you.
