Production Company Profile
Highview Productions creates quality scripted drama and comedy, through a uniquely Australian lens. We are passionate about stories with non-traditional heroes and heroines that resonate with international audiences and challenge us to see the world a little differently. We are looking for opportunities to produce high concept episodic drama with market potential for both Australian and international broadcasting and digital platforms. Although we are not actively looking for features or non-scripted content, we are happy to consider if the project feels undeniable. Highview loves collaborating with people who create from a clear and impassioned point of view and who, more than anything, want to move their audience. We are interested in genre if the characters are engaging and demand your attention; however horror is not our thing.
