Population Media Center is a content studio. In the U.S. market, we develop, finance, and produce original content that addresses contemporary social issues, utilizing diverse formats and genres on traditional network, cable, streaming, and digital platforms.
Our narrative focus is in addressing the broad, complex, and infinitely interesting areas of women’s empowerment, human rights, and environmental sustainability. Of course, these issues are just part of the diverse spectrum of real-world situations and environments that Americans experience on a daily basis. Life is not simple, so our stories aren’t either.
We have progressive sensibilities, a national perspective – and a laser focus on storytelling for social good. We value great entertainment and building powerful narratives. Our characters are authentic and multi-dimensional, based on in-depth research into a particular issue or area of interest. But our journey to a great story always follows one guiding star: to empower people to live healthier and more prosperous lives.
