Pitch Your TV Clients to TV Guide

TV Guide‘s mission is simple: to help people sort through the overwhelming choices of TV shows. Because of its unique positioning as the only magazine focused solely on TV coverage, TV Guide is the definitive resource for rescuing readers from aimless hours of channel surfing.

“We watch everything and make editorial choices in terms of what we’re going to feature in order to guide people to what they should be watching — what the best stuff is, what they need to be aware of, what’s becoming culturally relevant,” saidarticles editor Bruce Fretts.

The best part is, editors at the mag are very welcome to PR pitches. They’re open to anything that can be used to draw in viewers (and readers): guest stars, exciting plot twists, etc. One caveat: The mag focuses on the careers and professional lives of stars, so anything gossipy won’t fly.
