MOST TEENS WATCH TV.

THESE TEENS MAKE TV.

 

A UNIQUE WAY TO SHOWCASE PITTSBURGH & SHAPE OUR CITY’S FUTURE.

 

The Reel Teens: Pittsburgh isn’t just a television show, but a unique youth development program that brings together students from different schools and socio-economic backgrounds around southwestern Pennsylvania
The Reel Teens: Pittsburgh gives these students a chance to express themselves while participating in hands-on training to work in the entertainment industry. More importantly, the program equips students with important 21st-century life skills like creative problem-solving and teamwork, which will serve them for their entire lives.
Many of our students come from undeserved schools and overcome challenging personal obstacles through the program. Whether they are dropped off by their parents or take three buses to attend meetings and shoots, they all come together to make a show that is fun, educational, and entertaining.
The Reel Teens: Pittsburgh premiered on Fox53 in April 2016 and received impressive ratings, beating out every other program that aired on the station that morning. The show scored a .9 rating among the coveted young male demographic (18-45).
By supporting The Reel Teens, your company receives incredible exposure to the community and association with this innovative show while helping these young people find a pathway into the world. Join us in supporting the newest students in the pipeline of our Youth & Media program as they get ready to become the next Reel Teens.
