Former President Donald Trump is making his own foray into the streaming business under the same “free speech” banner that prompted fellow billionaire Elon Musk to pursue Twitter.
The Trump Media & Technology Group posted a job listing for a content development manager for a streaming platform titled “TMTG+.”
“Trump Media & Technology Group’s Streaming Video On Demand service will be a ‘Big Tent’ platform offering broad-based entertainment rooted in free speech,” the listing stated. “In addition to the Social Media platform Truth Social, our [streaming video on demand] platform TMTG+ will be the home for a wide variety of non-scripted, scripted, and original content.”
“The team at Trump Media & Technology Group Streaming Video is seeking a Content Development Manager with a passion for day-to-day development of the TMTG+ programming slate,” the posting continued. “The role will generate and develop internal concepts for original unscripted content, short form series episodes and specials. Our ideal candidate will be able to establish priorities and multi-task efficiently within a fast-paced environment while meeting strict deadlines.”
Among the responsibilities listed for the role are managing development projects, “including paper development, casting and pilots, responding to “pitches from outside producers and evaluate strength in relation to SVOD direction, plus staying “current on developing trends at networks, AVOD and SVOD platforms and identify relevant programming opportunities, as well as stay aware of emerging talent and upcoming non-scripted programming.”
Requirements include four-plus years of development experience, “at either a network, production company, digital content producer or streamer,” with applicants having a Bachelor’s Degree or equivalent, relevant experience.
“Excellent writing and storytelling skills; proficient at writing notes and giving direction,” is also a requirement.
The job listing said TMTG is not accepting applicants who are in the country on work visas, which prompted Mediaite to suggest this was “perhaps on brand for the former president.”
The news of a Trump-backed streaming service comes as CNN+ went belly up after less than a month in operation, having attracted a paltry number of subscribers,
