Want to break into TV?

……..is the unlikely name of a website which is all about getting your ideas on television:

“They say everyone has a novel inside them – Not From Concentrate believes that everyone has a TV show idea inside them.By using a combination of online resources and real-time mentoring, a housewife in Hull with a cracking quiz show or a bus driver from Bootle with the next big reality TV series can take their ideas to the next level. But hey, don’t just take our word for it. Give us a go and put us to the test. We’re open for business.”

If you do put them to the test, please let us know.
