Request for Proposals - Anthology Series 2
Te Reo Tātaki, in partnership with NZ On Air, is thrilled to announce a second 6 x 22-minute episode, cultural anthology series for TVNZ 2 and OnDemand.

In 2020, we put a call out for pitches for a supernatural anthology. The resulting series “Beyond the Veil”, funded by NZ On Air and Te Māngai Pāho, with development funding from NZ On Air, Te Māngai Pāho, TVNZ and NZ Film Commission, will be broadcast on TVNZ 2 and TVNZ OnDemand in 2022. We’re extremely pleased with the calibre of these first six episodes.

For this subsequent series, the kaupapa remains the same. First, we want to tell stories that are unique to Aotearoa and our place in the Pacific. Second, it is our intention to create an excellence driven capacity building pathway for Māori, Pasifika and other Tauiwi writers, producers, directors and to further develop talent both on and off screen.

We are calling for pitches from which we will initially select a short list of eight stand-alone stories for further development.

Six of those stories will be selected to progress to a production funding application for a second anthology series that will entertain New Zealanders at scale.

We expect at least three of the productions will be Māori and aim to have a mix of Pasifika and other Tauiwi teams to bring a diverse flavour to the strand through a distinctly Aotearoa lens.
