Chariot believes in the remarkable power of story to enlighten, inspire, energize, and motivate. The recent wave of success of movies & TV featuring diversity both on-screen and behind the camera demonstrates that worldwide audiences are hungry for original stories. To satisfy this hunger, we expand popular culture by integrating multi-dimensional stories of Muslims into universal narratives. By personalizing the lives and experiences of a holistic and vibrant cross-section of Americans, we create the emotional connections that are the essence of great storytelling and the basis of human community.
We create first-class content that contains authentic Muslim characters or Muslim-related themes. Chariot develops and produces scripted and unscripted commercial television series and feature films from new and existing intellectual property. With a rapidly growing list of new broadcast platforms, the industry has evolved to where networks and studios are increasingly turning to outside content creators like Chariot to provide unique, socially-relevant material for film, TV, and web content.
