Series

The film industry training scheme that brought the company directors together resulted in a three-part documentary series for ITV Wales in 2005, and so it was always the intention that Seraphim Pictures would one day branch out into series formats. The rise of streaming platforms and advent of SVOD and AVOD downloads has created a space for affordable series production in both fiction and factual, with greater opportunities for worldwide distribution. The Company currently has the following series in development for distribution in 2021-22:
