SERIES’ WOMEN is the first career enhancement program for female producers in the European drama series industry, with its first edition having taken place from April-September 2021.


The second edition of SERIES' WOMEN will kick-off in late 2022 and will once again combine a broad variety of elements: the producers will participate in state-of-the-art training opportunities addressing topics such as visibility, leadership and digital entrepreneurship as well as receive curated 1-1 mentoring and coaching. Networking opportunities at top European industry markets and direct access to decision makers and top industry players will round off the program.


By supporting selected female producers directly and boosting individual careers, SERIES' WOMEN sets off to increase the visibility and industry exposure of female producers and female-driven projects, supports the building of professional networks and strives to tackle underrepresentation in the industry in the general.


New to the program is an online diversity training exclusively directed at hiring managers or respective decision makers in the producers’ companies. Through this training, SERIES’ WOMEN addresses the topic of gender equality and diversity not only at an individual level, but sets out to enable change at the organizational level and make companies more competitive and sustainable in the process.
