telling authentic stories, one episode at a time

 

Cereal Made is a creative studio focused exclusively on serialized content — content that viewers will invite into their homes (or onto their phones) over and over again. 

Cereal Made works across audio, video, and new media, partnering with creators and brands who have stories to tell. It's more important than ever to bring underrepresented stories to the screen, and expose people to new characters and ideas. We tailor each team to purposefully reflect the audience we want to reach, and create unexpected narratives.

We believe that episodic content is powerful stuff, and we take that power seriously, challenging stereotypes, telling fresh stories, and breaking down barriers — all before breakfast.

DOCUMENTARY SERIES: SWATCHED

Swatched is a docu-series that challenges every stereotype that comes to mind when you hear the words, “knit and crochet.” 

Examining knitting and crocheting through both a personal and a creative lens, Swatched will explore the intersection of identity and artistic process. The series will transcend the traditional how-to-content that is aimed at a knitting audience, showcasing the origin stories of the patterns and materials knitters and crocheters crave, while giving viewers a deeper understanding of the craft.

NARRATIVE PODCAST: ANOMALY

After an earth-changing event causes disruption and civil war along the East Coast, 17-year-old Kory Hernandez is sent from her home in Queens to the relative safety of the remote countryside of Illinois. Living with a host family in Keensboro, a small town battling the impact of climate change, Kory feels cut off and powerless, unsure of her place in this new world. This narrative sci-fi podcast follows Kory as she embarks on her new life with the Miller family, and uncovers what happens when you put your trust into the wrong hands.

SCRIPTED SERIES: MODERN

On Manhattan's Upper West Side, there’s a thriving Modern Orthodox singles scene where thousands of years of religious tradition — and thousands of years of religious rules — collide with the NYC we’ve seen on Sex and the City, Broad City, and Girls. In Modern, we’re introduced to this scene through a secular twenty-something who moves in with three religious roommates and is plunged right into the center of a culture clash — between the roommates themselves, and with the city at large. The series follows the lives of the four friends as they live the single (and religious) life in NYC.
