The Kids’ Live Action Pitch is designed to meet what Reed Midem has identified as a growing international demand for live-action children’s series.

The firm claims it will be the first international competition to source original live-action programming ideas from producers and creators of children’s content.

Five finalists will be selected by a jury comprised of industry experts such as Nina Hahn, Senior Vice President (SVP) of Production and Development at Nickelodeon International; Jo Allen, producer for BBC Children’s acquisitions and independent animation; David Levine, Vice President (VP) of programming, production and strategic development for Disney Channels EMEA; and Paula Taborda dos Guaranys, Gloob’s head of content and programming.

Submissions are now open for series ideas on the MipTV website and will close on February 16. The finalists will have the opportunity to pitch their project live on stage at MipTV in front of buyers and commissioning editors in the kids’ industry and will also have one-on-one meetings with each of the jury members.

Alongside the inaugural competition, this year’s MipTV will also feature sessions focusing on content for digital natives and live-action scripted series.

Meanwhile, the International Emmy Kids’ Awards ceremony will be held on the evening of April 10 as part of MipTV, which takes places between April 9 and 12 in Cannes, France.
