Ready, Steady, Pitch! topic
Every Cloud are production company focused on returnable TV series drama for the international market. Our recent and current productions are varied and include period-crime series ‘Ms Fisher’s Modern Mysteries’, legal-drama ‘Newton’s Law’, Stan original comedy feature ‘A Sunburnt Christmas’ and forthcoming mystery thriller ‘Eden’. We have a long standing emphasis on female-lead stories and continue to promote cultural and gender diversity, both on and behind the screen. We are well-versed in the murder mystery genre, but our tastes are broad, with an active interest in international thrillers, comic-dramas, high-concept youth-skewed stories, as well as true crime. With all our projects, we are keen to engage multi-generational audiences and the unifying element of an ECP show is one that finds the shades of light and dark in every story - humour and pathos, joy and drama.
