Describe the main features of the policy/measure: 

It is a program to encourage the production of independent national fiction, its dissemination in public media and its international projection. It was created with the aim of building a privileged link between these contents and its audience on a national scale, actively contributing to its internationalization. The public media -through all the screens, platforms and devices through which a direct link is established with the audiences-, constitute a key piece, supporting the development of independent production and its projection within and outside the country.
This mechanism is in line with the development of public policy associated with the creation of local capacities in content production and the development of the national audiovisual industry within a framework of international insertion.
