How can you sell your docmentary video?

Hi guys!

I was wondering if anybody knows anything about selling documentaries or ideas for the making of a documentary video to international TV stations.

If you have the capability of filming and shooting a documentary should you go ahead and produce it and then try to sell it? Or before shooting it you should go and pitch your idea to international TV stations and see their response?

What’s the best way to approach this?

Thanks!

Okay, as far as I can tell from reading the rules, it should be okay for me to point you to this article:

My apologies, Chris, if this is against policy and I missed it.
