What is Syndication?

This is the goal for any television show. When a show goes into syndication, the studio will sell the broadcast rights to a particular station. This is usually on a per episode basis and occurs when a show is on its 3-4th season with 100 episodes. This is where studios begin to see profits from their television shows. When a network buys a television show from a studio, the cost to purchase the show is usually less than the cost to produce the show. In other words, studios don’t make a profit by selling their shows to the initial network. Profit is usually made when the show goes into syndication…and we’re talking a lot of profit. Usually a station will by multiple season of a particular show as a package. Price of the package can range from $10-000-$850,00 per episode.
