Antenna Pictures wants to hear from you!

We are a documentary and factual TV production company based in London, and are in the early stages of developing a UK version of the hit American docu-reality series 'Little Women' - a programme about a friendship group of women with dwarfism. 

Antenna Pictures wants to produce a celebratory, upbeat documentary about interesting women dealing with everyday life - i.e. family, careers etc. With the hope of challenging stereotypes, educating viewers, and elucidating the diversity within the LP community. This will be a positive and fresh British version, rather than a direct remake of the American show.

We are looking for female friendship groups who could be part of the documentary. If you are interested in finding out more then please do get in touch.

Email the Little People UK Media Team at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

The Little People UK Media Team have been contacted by a BAFTA Winning Innovative TV Production Company Studio Lambert. They are currently producing their second TV Series of the hit show 'The Big Life Fix’.

This show features a skilled team of Scientists, engineers and designers who create bespoke technology to transform people's lives for the better. 

They are looking for people who could benefit from a tailor made invention; perhaps there is something you feel you can't do, because of your condition, that you feel you should have the opportunity to do, or your condition prevents you from doing something you love or used to love to do. Essentially their scientists, engineers and designers are looking to help an individual, or a group, who feel their lives could be improved by their brilliant team.

 So we at LPUK Media Team feel this is an amazing opportunity for us and we are appealing to our members to have a long hard think about how your lives could be helped, transformed or improved by an invention. For example, our very own Warwick Davis suggested some sort of device to fix in the bath, that would allow him to relax and chill after a stressful day, preventing him slipping down the bath and nearly drowning.  I'm sure we can all relate to that one. 

So come on LPUK please get your thinking caps on and send us all your ideas. This could be be life changing.
