"Project Greenlight" (TV show) is a reality docu-series on HBO that chronicles the search for a first-time director and explores the filmmaking process.

Spanning the entire filmmaking process, the series takes a revealing, uncensored look at the challenges facing a novice director. The show begins with a digital competition, following the winner from pre-production and casting through principal photography and post-production. Equipped with a Hollywood-vetted script and surrounded by a team of industry professionals, the fledgling director must learn to cope with pressure from the studio and producers, survive on-set politics and lead a veteran cast and crew, all while trying to deliver a viable movie — on schedule and on budget.

"Project Greenlight" is produced by Adaptive Studios, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon's Pearl Street Films, and Miramax. Executive producers include Affleck and Damon.
