At the heart of PMC’s work is a unique form of entertainment-education.

PMC creates long-running dramas for TV, radio, and the web. These hit shows have a unique capacity for not only raising awareness among large numbers of people about critical issues such as women’s rights, reproductive health, and girls’ education – but for actually motivating audiences to adopt new behaviors. PMC has impacted people in more than 50 countries around the world. Watch this behind the scenes video of how season one of PMC’s East Los High, a hulu original series, was created.
