Knowledge Network – Stories (Un)told

Deadline: January 30, 2024

BC’s Knowledge Network is inviting mid-career and senior BC producers to submit development proposals for premium limited documentary series of 3 to 4 one-hour episodes, for broadcast on our channel and streaming on Knowledge Prime. Stories (Un)told is a new Knowledge Network documentary commissioning stream in partnership with Creative BC.

We’re looking for resonant BC stories (contemporary or historical) that have been hidden from view or that are being reframed with new context and insight.  These stories can reach beyond BC, but they need to have a BC anchor.  They should turn the heads of audiences and make them ask, “why didn’t I know that”?

A maximum of 2 projects will be selected for development with the goal of moving 1 project into production in 2025.    Financial support will be in the form of a development license fee and potentially an allocation from Knowledge Network’s CMF Development Envelope. (TBD based on confirmation of our development envelope amount in April 2024.)

Q&A sessions for producers seeking additional information about this call and working with Knowledge Network will be held on the following dates & locations:

– Tuesday, November 7th at 2:00 pm at Knowledge Network – 4355 Mathissi Place, Burnaby, BC. (Please RSVP by Friday, November 3rd)
– Wednesday, November 8th at 10:30 am – virtual session. (Please RSVP by Friday, November 3rd)

To register for any of these info sessions please email Nikki Beesley at

Deadline for Submissions – Tuesday, January 30th, 2024, at 5:00 pm PST.
