About 

Online platform Filmarket Hub opens its call for projects for the 2nd London TV Pitchbox – a live pitch event dedicated to British series in development. The event will be hosted by the Century Club, in partnership with the Raindance Film Festival on the 20th September. Seven projects will be selected to pitch in front of leading TV executives from the UK industry.
The 1st London TV Pitchbox included an engaging case study on ‘Peaky Blinders’ by Executive Producer Jamie Glazebrook. In attendance were TV executives from companies such as Entertainment One, Ingenious, Lionsgate, Salon Pictures, Sky, The Fyzz, UKTV and Virgin Media. TV executives from AMP International, Euston Films, NBCUniversal, Ruby Rock, Working Title Television and World Productions have confirmed their attendance for this year.
Following the same format as other Filmarket Hub Pitchbox events, representatives for the selected projects will have seven minutes each to pitch to the attending executives. After the pitching session there will be a networking lunch.
