The PLOT of a television show, no less than of a novel, is subject to copyright.

A pitch is not just an idea but a summary of an original story, book, a concept, a tv show format and more, with a specific and unique twist or plot.
It is a protectable sales material. An idea is a simple and general explanation or a proposal without a specific or defined plot.
"Two people singing a duet in front of an audience" is just an idea and can not be protected. But "A celebrity and a non-celebrity perform a duet together in front of an audience" is as defined as "Old men singing a duet with famous kid stars," it's a pitch.
The word "pitch" is used in connection with the presentation and sales of television show formats, movie screenplays, stories for books, etc., during film festivals, MIPCOM etc. Then later all further development work will evolve around the original pitch or plot.
The Science fiction movie "Outlander" was sold on the basis of one single sentence, one of the most famous pitch in the film industry:
"It's High Noon in outerspace."
