The Media Project's Services
Staffing a "hotline" for the entertainment industry, the Media Project provides prompt assistance in researching sexual and reproductive health issues for television and film writers, producers, and directors. Statistics, background material, research data, referral to experts, script consultation, and support in crafting storylines are available to the more than 100 shows that contact the Media Project's Helpline each year.

Systematically identifying television shows that it might benefit, the Media Project meets with writers, directors, and producers of top programs, providing tailored technical assistance, ideas for storylines, and up-to-date information on sexual health issues pertinent to the individual shows.
Staff also meets with network executives, encouraging network support for messages about respecting youth's right to act responsibly and about society's responsibility to provide youth with the information and services they need to make healthy decisions about sex. Tailored Meetings >>
Bridging the gap between the entertainment industry, sexual health experts, and teens, the Media Project coordinates three informational briefings each year. Always attended by more than 50 entertainment industry professionals, each briefing explores in depth a "hot" topic in teen sexual health. The briefings give Hollywood's writers, producers, and directors opportunities to speak directly with young people and other experts regarding adolescent sexual health. Informational Briefings >>
