Meeting at the SPA Connect Pitching Market?
Ready, Steady, Pitch!

Princess Pictures is interested in original non-derivative drama projects with the potential to be multi-series, as well as factual and narrative children’s projects. Additionally, short form projects for digital platforms are of interest, particularly female lead, low-budget projects with comedic or social aspirations.

We are currently not looking for half hour narrative comedy projects nor reality formats.

On screen diversity is important to us and we gravitate toward new ideas and stories that haven’t been told or those that make audiences look at the world differently.
