Hi guys,

I just checked my submission status with Discovery Channel Producer Portal and it says 'passed'.

When I have submitted to other producer portals (outside of the U.S.) they either state Approved or Rejected.

I've never seen the word 'passed' before. Am I rejected?

If anyone can clarify, I'd really appreciate it.

Cheers,
Sarah

Yes, you're rejected. Your proposal was "passed over." Keep in mind you might see your exact show appear on the air in the future and you will have zero recourse of any claim because they very well could have been working on the exact same show already.

that's why we never use that method of submitting to Discovery.

Hi Walter,

I had a feeling that was the case.

Thanks for the reply - yes, I have seen a lot of people on here who were rejected, but then saw their show on air a short time later.

Will just have to try another method.

Thanks again,
Sarah

Yeah, I just got talking to a production company who just wrapped with Discovery on a different show.

We're going to work on pitching this through them instead of just me.
I'm only the little person with an idea :-)
