What we're looking for from Ready, Steady, Pitch!


In Unscripted, we cover a broad range of genres, with a current focus on unique, must-see/must-have, ideas that can help attract and grow our BINGE subscribers, as well as evergreen returnable formats in expert-led Lifestyle or Fact-Ent for the wider viewership across our Foxtel platforms.

Before pitching, do think about our audiences and different platforms, making sure you know what programmes we currently have in our schedules, so that your pitch can be focussed and different. Interesting access and great talent always helps. Most of all, surprise us with something we haven’t seen before!

If your idea lends itself to non-traditional production funding, we’d be interested to hear about that too.
