How can I be on a show or have my child appear on a show?
PBS is not a production entity. We acquire previously completed programming or enter into production agreements with a variety of independent producers. We do not have information on filming that is in progress, as it may or may not have been submitted to PBS for review. If you want to contact the producers of the show you are interested in directly, you can find contact information for the producers of most PBS and PBS KIDS! shows at either PBS Shows or PBS KIDS! Shows. Some of our local stations, which are independently owned and operated, do produce programming and may be connected to the program in which you are interested. We suggest that you contact your local station directly to see if they have further information. Contact information for PBS member stations is available using the PBS Station Finder.

How do I submit PSA's, birthday requests, or local community announcements to PBS?
PBS’ national headquarters does not distribute PSAs, birthday announcements or local community announcements. Since all of our member stations are independently owned and operated and make scheduling decisions locally for their viewing area, you may wish to contact the stations in your area directly with your request. Contact information for PBS member stations can be found using the PBS Station Finder.
