"Standard" Development Deal?

It's just been announced that the winner of Richmond's 48HFP gets a $5,000 development deal with TruTV. No details are listed, but TruTV calls it a "standard development deal". What the heck does that mean?

A standard development deal means the winner will be paid five
large and allowed to pitch several ideas for shows over a specific
period of time. All ideas pitched will belong to TruTV but they are
not obligated to use any of them. Within limits they can develop
any pitch in the future. If they accept a pitch they will pay an
agreed upon price and may or may not continue with the winner
of the contest. Even if they do not develop a series with the winner,
the winner will receive payment and credit.

And if anyone in Albuqurque, Detroit, Denver, or Des Moine is reading this, the same prize is offered in those cities, as well. If anyone in Richmond is reading this, nevermind, it's lame, you don't want it.
