Building Goodwill, Building Business
Living Earth Television offers a one-of-a-kind sponsorship opportunity to reach a highly desirable, national American audience with China-related goods and services, as well as building powerful goodwill with the Chinese public.
Your business or organization now has, for the first time ever, the opportunity to sponsor the national American broadcast, on the PBS World Channel, of beautiful documentaries about China made by Chinese filmmakers. These compelling and positive views of China, through the eyes of her own people, have never been seen before in the USA. Sponsorship of these programs offers a highly visible opportunity to stand up for a strong and positive relationship between China and the USA, while receiving valuable publicity for your company.
- China Inside Out on the PBS World Channel
Living Earth Television (LETV) has hand-picked and licensed four award-winning documentaries from China to adapt for a national American audience. The English-language versions of these programs will be broadcast in early 2015 on the national PBS World Channel, a sister channel to PBS that currently reaches over 60% of American households, and PBS’s upscale, educated and influential audience. PBS World Channel is based at WGBH in Boston, and the General Manager is Chinese-American Ms. Liz Cheng.
The initial four films in the series include an episode from the wildly popular A Bite of China series from China Central Television; Kindergarten, from beloved Chinese filmmaker Zhang Yiqing; One Child, a 2014 Student Academy Award winner from Chinese filmmaker Mu Zijian; and Horsemen, by Nancy Muqing Mu, an international award winner. Your company or organization can sponsor one to four programs in the series, to bring your corporate identity message to an audience of millions.
- Sponsoring the Broadcasts
Sponsors for the four programs will receive two fifteen-second on-air promotions (which must meet PBS standards) on each and every broadcast of the programs selected. Programs will air nationally a minimum of four times, reaching an audience estimated at two million viewers per program.
Sponsorship levels begin at $30,000. To discuss this opportunity, and find out more about sponsoring LETV’s programs, please contact Ms. Martha Foster, President and CEO, or Mr. Chen Yang, Marketing Coordinator.
