This pitch development grant, led by ISO, Amazon Studios and the Black Screen Office, provides Canadian Black, Indigenous and People of Colour screen content creators with the opportunity to develop a half-hour scripted or non-scripted series pitch in English for presentations to executives from Amazon Prime Video.
Each team selected received $10K to develop their pitch, which they then presented to Amazon Studios during a two-day pitch event on May 11 and 12.
