Next Generation TV: Boise State Program Gives Students Media Experience

Lucky Us Film
Narrative TV Initiative
A still from "Lucky Us" shows the winning lottery ticket accidentally left behind with a restaurant tip.


The Narrative TV Initiative is a Boise State University program that gives students real world experience in the television production process through the creation from start to finish of a show. 


They debuted their first series, called ‘And Beyond,’ two years ago. Now, their second series is nearly ready for audiences. 

‘Lucky Us’ tells the story of a woman down on her luck when she finds a lottery ticket left behind by a friend. It’s a winning ticket. She has to decide whether to be honest and return the ticket or use the winnings to help her struggling family. 


Two students — Andrea Carrizales and Matt Dominick — join Idaho Matters to talk about the process of creating a TV show, along with the director of the Narrative TV Initiative Ryan Cannon. 

The series premier will be at the Egyptian Theatre on Monday, March 2 at 7 p.m. The screening of three half-hour episodes is free and open to the public.
