Default Pitching to History Channel

Seeking advice on a reality show I'd like to pitch to History and like networks.

On top of being an aspiring screenwriter, I'm also a treasure hunter. I have a great idea for a show, have a lot of experts lined up that I know would work with me, and have several loose ends already tied together to make it happen.

What would be the proper process for pitching? Film a pilot first? Ask for money to film the pilot w/their people?

And say they were interested and gave it the green light. What would I be expecting at that point, in terms of financing and resources?

Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated.

Those channels don't produce shows. They buy shows from production companies. The only way you pitch those channels is through one of the production companies that feeds them. Watch the shows and look and see who the production companies are and query them.
