DHS works with feature pictures, television—including documentary series, fictionalized series, non-scripted reality series, and mini-series—as well as video games, theatrical productions, and other non-news entertainment projects. The Office of Multimedia, Motion Pictures and Television has several options for how we provide this information to writers, producers, development directors and others.
The following is an example of a standard DHS Multimedia Agreement signed between the Department and a production company (or network) prior to production of a documentary for television or film. Similar agreements are used for fictional television, motion picture, or written word.
The Department of Homeland Security's Office of Multimedia provides advice and guidance to screenwriters, directors, producers and authors who need information regarding the Department and its component agencies.
