Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Foundation Logo

I don’t think that you’ll ever catch me watching an awards show (or at least admitting to it), but I know that they’re a major event for a lot of people. While I’m screaming at my tv over a missed call during a baseball game, I know that there are just as many people who scream at their tvs over a favorite actor or actress not winning an award. When I first heard about the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Foundation (also known as The Emmys Foundation), I assumed that they were all about award shows. I was wrong, but they are all about television. They organization is based in Los Angeles, CA, and they’re the charitable arm of the Television Academy (the organization that puts on the Emmys). The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Foundation is “dedicated to using the artistry of television to preserve and celebrate the history of television, and educate those who will shape its future.”

HBO Logo

It’s the ultimate premium channel. The one that separates the haves from the have nots—at least when it comes to cable packages. HBO or Home Box Office is the pinnacle of cable television. Ok, maybe I’m going a bit far, but I remember how excited I was when one day HBO was suddenly part of my family’s cable package. The cable company made a mistake, and I was now able to watch all kinds of great movies in the comfort of my own home (and without having my mom take me to Blockbuster). Of course, HBO, which is based in New York City, isn’t just about movies. Their original programming is one of the key reasons that they have more than 40 million subscribers in the US. HBO’s series past and present include Arliss, Sex and the City, Entourage, The Sopranos, Fraggle Rock, and plenty of others. Then there are their documentaries and sports coverage. It’s why people pay extra for HBO (and Cinemax, its sister station): high quality programming without commercials.

I was 10 when the first season of Road Rules came out. I had seen the Real World before, but it didn’t really appeal to me. Road Rules, on the other hand, was just about the coolest show ever to me. They had a Winnebago! I’m not sure if the show got worse as the seasons progressed, or if the cast just seemed way less cool as I approached them in age, but after a few seasons of watching both the Real World and Road Rules, I got bored. Still, you have to respect Bunim-Murray Productions for essentially creating reality tv. We’ve all now been desensitized to how revolutionary those shows were when they first aired. Now we have The Simple Life, Living Lohan, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, and Old Skool (all current BMP projects). It’s not the same, but that doesn’t mean that an internship with Bunim-Murray Productions won’t be an awesome experience.

Procter & Gamble Productions

If watching soap operas is part of your daily internship search routine, then we really hope it’s because you’ve read our article on using television to find internships. If that is the case, then you’re not the only one who has put trashy tv shows to a strangely productive use for you. Back in the 1930’s Procter & Gamble created soap operas (then on the radio) to sell their soap. They realized that in most households the women bought the soap and also listened to the radio at home during the day. Out of that realization came one of the most brilliant marketing techniques ever created – radio/television programming tailored specifically for reaching a demographic with advertising. In 1952 the move was made to television, and since then Procter & Gamble Productions has been behind major television shows like Guiding Light and As the World Turns.

MTV Networks LogoThere’s no background story necessary on this one. You know MTV. You know what they’re all about; however, you may not know that MTV Networks consists of many properties, including MTV, Nickelodeon, VH1, CMT, Comedy Central, Spike, and a few more. To be honest, we don’t have time to tell you about MTV Networks as a company because there are simply too many internship opportunities to go over.

You can find most of MTV Networks’ internship openings on Viacom’s Job Hunt site. These include:

Nickelodeon Animation Studio Internship Program (Burbank, California) – This is for undergrads at all class levels, must be for credit (so is probably unpaid), and runs year round. Internships are available in Production/Post Production, Casting, Development, Administration/Special Events, Human Resources, and Business and Legal Affairs.
