We understand the requirement to inform audiences if the material being broadcast is paid for by an advertiser and we understand the need for parents to know the content and age-appropriateness of any program. We also understand the creative process and story and character development. Our third party oversight helps reduce internal staffing costs and provides insulation from risk.

We work on scripted and unscripted shows to ensure the content meets audience, advertiser, and regulatory expectations. Our goal is to provide television content ratings guidance and recommendations that accurately reflect the program content. We provide consultation on how to handle language, violence, sexual situations, nudity, and content that may offend specific audiences.
The F.C.C. enforces rules against indecency in programming and "payola" disclosure requirements. It also has a host of special rules for children which is why TV Parental Guidelines are required for all television programming.
