what makes us different

The values we live by


We know that talented, experienced, and work-ready television professionals of colour are not a risk and are easy to find. How do we know this? Because most of them are in our community. Here, our community supports each other to succeed.

Everyone can make a difference

We passionately believe that your perception, intent, and commitment have the power to change not only your career, the industry but also the world. So important in fact, it guides everything we do. If you believe you can't, you're right; if you think you can, you're right too.

Your network equals your net worth

Community and collaboration is the fastest route to change. Divided we fall untied we stand. The clue is in our name The TV Collective.


We believe everyone deserves a seat at the table no matter their background. #TakeUpSpace.
