Thirty four years as an independent content specialist


TAPE is esentially a bespoke service, flexible and adaptable to client needs. Please feel free to contact us to discuss your requirments.

However we do also produce a range of standard reports to help keep busy executives completely up to date with new programming and newsworthy developments in the major English speaking markets of the U.K., U.S. and Australia, plus global reporting on non-scripted formats.

Produced at regular intervals throughout the year (daily, weekly monthly or bi-monthly), they combine to build into a complete picture of product airing in these markets, and also incorporate objective and insightful evaluative commentary and assessment of appeal.

TAPE’s reporting services include:

Daily Highlights Newsletters

A daily newsletter delivered via email, providing top-line information on events from the previous day, alongside new series launch alerts, general programme development and industry news, and previews of coming events.

Daily newsletters are currently available for the U.K. and U.S. markets.

In-Focus Reports

A series of market specific reports produced throughout the year, providing detailed reviews and assessments of major new series and special events as they debut domestically on terrestrial, cable or digital channels (as appropriate).

Each series is covered in detail, with reports providing cast, schedule and producer details, synopsis information and an evaluative assessment, as well as an indication of performance where required and/or available.

  • Genres covered include drama, comedy, game, reality, entertainment and factual programmes.
  • All series are viewed by TAPE personnel, and the review content is therefore completely unique to us.
  • Individual reports are currently available for the U.K., U.S. and Australian markets.

In-Format Report

A special report designed specifically to provide a concise reference to new and emerging international formats.

Produced monthly and delivered by email, the report provides an up to date snapshot of what’s going on in the format world, covering a wide range of markets and genres, and including both new shows and updates on existing formats (e.g. new market clearances, performance information etc.)
The report is deliberately brief to encourage reading, but always features market, channel and producer information, along with a programme description and any other relevant information.

We encourage clients to request further information of shows of interest.

Debut Alerts

A weekly report identifying new series about to debut on broadcast, cable or digital channels, providing channel, date, time and a short description of each show.

Currently available for the U.K. and U.S. markets.

LA Screenings Service

A unique service for acquisitions executives to comprehensively cover what is arguably the most important and opinion-forming television market of the year - the L.A. Screenings.

The service encompasses all aspects of TAPE’s portfolio: from periodic pre-market reviews covering the development season and building up to the May event, to the in-depth L.A. Screenings Report itself covering all of the shows picked up by the five U.S. broadcast networks and the main cable networks, and supplemented by client meetings in L.A. during the high-profile annual event.

With U.S. production continuing to deliver those hit, must-see shows that garner audiences world-wide, TAPE’s international, audience-based insights and objective, experienced evaluative skills provides vital additional input to the decision-making process, at a point where little is certain.
