Tailored is an award-winning creative production company committed to the development and production of original, high-end content for cinema and television. Specialising in independent genre and young people's entertainment, Tailored have worked in co-production with numerous financiers and sales agents to create commercially and critically successful film and television, securing worldwide distribution and engaging international audiences in the process.
Historically focused on children’s series, Tailored have since expanded their TV remit to include teen drama and comedy-drama for older audiences. After being awarded slate development funding from Creative Europe earlier this year, they are actively seeking to develop new serialised projects for their growing catalogue, including bold and relatable teen drama and gritty youth-led series, anthology series with a genre twist, and offbeat comedy-driven TV.
Tailored currently have a robust slate of feature and TV projects ranging from gothic thriller and sci-fi comedy to children’s drama and teen mystery among more. Owing to the company's rapid growth over the last number of years, Tailored are keen to build on their existing wide network of international connections and further their foothold in creating smart genre and young people's entertainment.
