CaribbeanTales Flow into Production Leading Film producers begin production on three new pilots

Three of the Caribbean’s leading film producers will now develop pilots for their original TV series projects, via funding from Flow and CaribbeanTales Media Group. With $40,000 funding for each project, production work will begin on Battledream Chronicle, a sci-fi/drama animated series created by Alain Bidard, which is based on his groundbreaking multi-award winning feature film; Heat, a sweltering crime/drama series filmed in Barbados from iconic filmmaker Menelik Shabazz  (Burning an Illusion, The Story of Lover’s Rock and more); and Caribbean Girl NYC, an ensemble female-driven sitcom from NY-based Guadeloupian filmmaker.

Support for these pilots is part of CaribbeanTales Incubator Program (CTI), a yearround development and production hub for Caribbean and Caribbean Diaspora Producers to assist in the creation of strong, compelling and sustainable regional content for the global market.
