Story Syndicate is a New York-based film and television production company devoted to premium nonfiction and scripted content. Founded in 2019 by Academy Award®- and Emmy Award®-winning filmmakers Liz Garbus and Dan Cogan in the light of an evolving media landscape, Story Syndicate provides a home for talented filmmakers, producers, journalists, thinkers, and artists to create innovative, ambitious, and elevated visual content.
We are committed to nurturing and executing ambitious ideas and doing so with sincerity, transparency, and artistry. Our core values are those that have driven Dan’s and Liz’s careers for the 20+ years they’ve been working as storytellers: creator-friendly, platform-friendly, humanistic, diverse, and relentlessly focused on quality. As expert facilitators, we provide filmmakers the creative and operational infrastructure they need, while also using our own creative pipeline to match ideas we love with emerging filmmakers. Rather than serving a single consumer, Story Syndicate aligns the interests of many stakeholders as part of its philosophy. We aim to serve platforms, filmmakers, partners, and our viewers themselves.
