What kind of program, magazine, interview, entertainment, documentary? Will you be incorporating different elements as in a news program? Will there be commercial breaks?

All of these variables come into play when you're formatting a show. But the most important questions are...Who is your audience?...and...What do you want them to leave your program knowing, doing or thinking differently?

And, on top of that, what are the specific requirements of the broadcaster? Every broadcast network and cable outlet has there own specifications.

Is this broadcast, cable, prime time, fringetime? Many variables to consider.

Im looking for a layout of Color Bars/tone, slate, countdown, Show open/1st seq, 1st break, 2nd Seq and so on. How many breaks in a 60min program? This all applies to a broadcast format.
The show in question is a one hour cooking show.

Most of those things are specific to the network. 60 sec of bars/tone, 10 sec slate & 10 sec countdown are more or less standard in the US. Some outlets may want a longer or shorter slate. Opens, number of segments, the number & timing of breaks are particular to the network (& sometimes the timeslot or particular show).

Your best bet would be to contact the network and ask their requirements.

Just about the only thing that is standard to every network, and this is preferred for many reasons is that program start at 1;00;00;00 time code.

Like the rest of the posts state. There really is not a "standard".
There are "Broadcast Standards" which apply to video levels, chroma levels, sound levels. Are you producing a spec show that you hope to sell air time on? Do you already have sponsors? Are you buying the airtime? Look at an infomercial - these are just 30 and 60 minute commercials. If you need a "guide" just tape some shows off the air and see how they are layed out. Hope this helps.

The formatting of a program usually is specified in the list of deliverables from the station or network that is airing the program.
