MPTF22 » Programming for MPTF’s Residential Community
Creativity is ageless. That’s why MPTF22, also known as Channel 22, provides MPTF residents with a unique opportunity to create original programming for the community at MPTF’s Wasserman Campus. Shows are broadcast throughout the grounds, into cottages and rooms, as well as to our YouTube page for families of residents and for the public to enjoy.
We’re mindful of sharing industry knowledge and job skills and, because of this, MPTF22 is truly intergenerational. Residents, professionals, and industry volunteers work side-by-side with local high school youth who are interested in a career in the entertainment industry. We also foster fulfilling relationships by developing programs and partnerships with entertainment industry professionals, organizations, and companies.
The result is a combination of amazing experiences and incredible programs that speak volumes about the extraordinary people who are a part of the MPTF community.

MPTF22 is extremely thankful for the founding vision and support of Lucille and Mel Shavelson and the generosity of NBCUniversal.
MEDIA CENTER HIGHLIGHT REEL
The Media Center provides opportunities for residents and industry volunteers to develop and create programing that serves the MPTF residential community through education, information, and entertainment programs. A key component to this is integrating junior volunteers into the process. The collaboration between generations preserves the tradition of shared knowledge inherent to the entertainment industry while educating all parties to current entertainment industry technologies.
