Netflix & EPC Partner to Support European Female Producers


`Netflix and the European Producers Club (EPC) are aligning for a new initiative to create opportunities for European female producers.

The new initiative, announced at Series Mania, includes a pitch contest for scripted series as well as a workshop run by Netflix about how to best pitch a project.

Producers of the six selected best projects will have the opportunity to pitch to Netflix. The three best pitches will receive awards of €50,000 ($55,000), €20,000 ($22,000) and €10,000 ($11,000), respectively, to take their projects to the next development stage.

The pitching competition is reserved for EPC producers working for female-owned companies (with a minimum of 50 percent of ownership). The pitching teams must include at least one woman producer and either a woman writer or director.
