What genres are you looking for? We are mainly interested in both scripted and soft scripted television and digital projects. We’re looking for coming of age teen dramas and comedic takes on the same storylines. We’re also interesting in gamer and hacker culture – think Mr. Robot.  We also develop branded content, which varies depending on platform and demographic target.
Film, TV, New Media, Other? For television, we are interesting in project suitable for premium and top-tier cable channels, as well as, streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime. As for new media we have developed live-action VR projects, and will be doing more in the space in the future.
Budget range? Varies depending on platform
What makes the ideal writer for your company? We’re looking for unique voices that true insight into interesting worlds. As with any project, we see them as a collaborative process and are looking for writers that understand the notes process. We are especially interesting in finding new writers that are excited about the new OTT platforms that the opportunities they present.
What are your goals for the Great American PitchFest? We hope to find some new voices and material that is suitable for some of the new OTT platforms we’ve been working with as of late. We see these as a solid launching ground for titles or larger project that will be launched on cable or streaming services.
Have you had success at pitching events before? Yes, we’ve been working with a writer on a period drama series that will be going out later this year.
Is there any advice you would like to offer the writers who are pitching you? Feel free to ask questions, especially what channels are looking for today. The market is changing and often the programming tastes of channel will move in new directions, opening up new opportunities for production companies if they have the right piece of material.
