the north fork


A visit to the North Fork of Long Island transports you to a place where over 60 vineyards flourish and local farms, orchards, and fisherman offer their bounty to visitors. Greenport, a centuries-old fishing village, has become a destination for up-and-coming artists, farm-to-table cuisine, and idyllic weekend escapes. Nestled on the East End of Long Island and steeped in history, it’s an ideal backdrop for fostering the future of independent scripted television.

We’re an answer to the systematic challenges independent creators face in the studio system — a place to nurture and amplify the talent.
