  • WCA-TV will accept your show if it meets the following criteria:
  • No audio or video content that is under copyright by another person or group
  • No advertising of any sort
  • Producer needs to live in Watertown, MA, or work for a Watertown non-profit organization
  • If you do not live or work in Watertown, you need to be sponsored by a resident or someone who works for a non-profit in Watertown, MA

Create a Production

  • Do you have an idea for a show and would like to start production? If you are a resident of Watertown or work for a nonprofit in Watertown, you can become a member for free. As a member, you can learn how to write, produce, film, and edit your own show. To start, you will need to enroll in and attend our certification workshops. Once certified, you will have access to our production equipment and can start creating your own television show!
