Ready, Steady, Pitch! topic
Jungle Entertainment produces premium scripted content for a worldwide audience including drama and comedy television and film. We strive to find the best stories on the planet and bring them to the screen. We love ideas that are innovative and highly authored, specifically Australian but with international appeal and are unique in world, character and hook. We love an opportunity to use the comic DNA inherent in the company in a new and surprising way. Zeitgeisty drama ideas that have levity or comic twists are a firm favourite. Our soon to air 8 x 1hr drama Wakefield is a great example of this.
