ITV Studios has launched its annual Factual Pitch programme for 2021 and is calling for submissions from producers before the end of the month.

The Factual Pitch Programme aims to team production talent with global broadcasters to create content that will resonate with a worldwide audience.

Producers are invited to pitch their brand new ideas across the genres of “true crime, lifestyle and hidden worlds and armchair travel,” which ITV Studios together with its international partners, including ITV, Channel 4, A+E Networks UK, Seven Network Australia, PBS, Discovery and Tencent Video in China, will help to finance, produce and distribute.

Cecilie Olsen, SVP of Global Content, Non-Scripted, at ITV Studios, said: “It is always with great excitement that we wait for the ideas to come in for the pitch. We are delighted to be working with some of the most innovative broadcasters internationally that share our passion for high quality and break out content. Together we are in a brilliant position to breathe life into the producers ideas – and bring them to a worldwide audience.”

The deadline for entries is Thursday 28th January 2021.
