Ready, Steady, Pitch! topic
In the Non-scripted space we are looking for ideas made In Australia that will resonate with audiences globally - like our recent series on Stan After The Night that is also playing in the UK and the USA.
In the scripted space we are looking for Australian stories that maximise Australia as a character. Shows that could ONLY be made here in Australia, but with themes that strike a chord with International audiences. Think of the success of Scandi- Noir.
