Ownership on TV Reality show idea

we have a reality show idea. My partner and I have a treatment and will be going into pitch this to networks and cable Exec.producers. If they love it and want to move forward, I understand their goal will be to buy the idea from me, but I have a desire to produce it... I would like to know if we can still OWN the idea or partly own the idea if a network or a major cable network want to own it too.. Is it something that happens frequently or rarely. I also understand that I have to speak with a lawyer eventually.

thank you.
