PANDORA is a new company specialized in the creation of brand new television formats, operating at international level.

PANDORA was founded by three television writers and producers whose solid experience, both in Italy and abroad, spans across various television genres. It combines Italian creativity with the demands of the international market.

PANDORA offers a wide variety of original tv formats, mainly meant for tv productions which, while relatively low-budget, still have a great potential. 

Our tv programs are designed to please a wide audience and are based on mechanisms of strong effectiveness

PANDORA’s writers and producers not only are dedicated to the sale of tv formats, but they are also committed to follow the pre-production as well as the production process up until the program is aired. We work hard to meet local needs and adapt our products to the cultural context they are in.
