The distributed content contributes to pluralism and the diversity of information and helps shape the opinions of viewers and users. This is a huge privilege, but also places an important obligation on ProSiebenSat.1 Group because, as a media group, our reach means that we have a significant social and journalistic responsibility. We therefore endeavor to use our media offerings to focus on important ecological, societal and sociopolitical issues and to speak to young people in particular, thereby making a valuable contribution to society as a company (public value).

The joint exposé funding pot of ProSiebenSat.1 TV Deutschland and the Association of German Scriptwriters (Verband deutscher Drehbuchautoren) is entering its fifth round and is looking for dark crime and thriller formats for SAT.1 in 2019. This year's call, which ran from March 1 to May 6, 2019, concentrated on material ideas for thrillers and dark crimes, which narratively serve the genres in an enthralling and audience-attracting way while keeping an eye on the mainstream orientation of SAT.1 fiction.
In 2018, the grant, which basically supports authors' ideas to develop feature films, television films, TV and web series, concentrated on new ideas for procedural series for the SAT.1 prime-time. The fourth invitation of the exposé fund ended with more than 150 submitted ideas. Eight projects were selected for further development. The aim of the funding is to financially equip the selected authors to give them tranquility and time to develop their own ideas.
ProSiebenSat.1 TV Deutschland and the Association of German Scriptwriters have agreed in their joint remuneration rules of June 3, 2014 to set up a substance development funding of yearly EUR 150,000 until 2019. Authors receive a total budget of EUR 450,000 for content development within a three years funding period. Part of the financial support is that ProSiebenSat.1 TV Deutschland reserves the right to offer first-time access to the materials developed. If there is no script contract, the authors can offer their developed content freely on the market.
