Dori Media Non-Scripted Creative Accelerator

What is Dori Media Accelerator? 

The Dori Media Accelerator is a unique and intensive program for the development of Non-Scripted TV formats. The program focuses on turning unrefined ideas into fully polished paper formats, for the international market.

Our first Accelerator round was launched in September 2020. Over 150 creative teams from Israel submitted ideas, after which six projects with global commercial potential were selected, following a rigorous evaluation process.


What makes our approach unique?

Our Accelerator model was designed to boost format development that traditionally takes a long time. Simply put- our approach allows us to develop new products relatively fast, in order to reach new markets as quickly as possible.

The program’s participants are all talented creators (15 people/6 teams, chosen from over more than 400 creators), that do not necessarily belong to the TV industry mainstream, but rather were chosen due to the originality of their ideas, their high level of motivation and their strength when working as a team. The creative teams work together as a peer review group, accompanied by close professional mentorship of Dori Media’s content, marketing and sales teams. At the conclusion of our first Accelerator in the beginning of March 2021, the creators presented their fresh paper formats to senior global TV executives, at a closed pitch event.
