If someone is watching TV do i have to create all the shows or get written permission?

I would shoot an additional "TV" show to put as your BG TV show. Unless you want to specify a "Friends" episode or something. Just do a spoof. Quick and easy and throw in a laugh track and boom. You've got TV these days.

good luck!

Yeah. If the particular tv show isn't an important part of your shoot. I'd agree with Edgen, just make a simulated soundtrack of a show. and if you need to show tv footage, then just shoot your own sample clips. You can get laugh tracks, theme music for free on some sites. Just google it.

TV shows are intellectual property just like music. If you're going to use it, you'll need permission.

:( the clips are very important to the story. i guess i can't. i thought if they dont sell it you may get away with it. oh well. i guess either i'll shoot the film and have it as a unoffical entry or write a totally different short.
