iThentic is an award-winning digital content company HQ’d in Toronto – with offices in New York and Los Angeles – that’s focused on developing and producing narrative-based properties for all platforms. We are digital storytellers – equal parts genre-bending live action, wisecracking comedy, trailblazing animation, and indie film with a dose of social conscience. We develop, produce and distribute original multi-platform content and series for traditional broadcast, OTT platforms, iOS and Android, and social media. We also work with our partners to secure international financing, arrange worldwide distribution in all channels (including our platform, iFestivus), develop apps to enhance engagement, and work with brands and platforms to develop entirely original story-based content and audience engagement solutions. If you’re a platform, we can add distinctive original series to your mix. If you’re a producer, we can help bring your projects to life.
What are they looking for?
iThentic is open to receiving pitches from concept through to distribution. We are currently seeking short and long-form comedy series as well as dark and edgy dramatic short form series.
