STUDIO: Astronauts Wanted


Astronauts Wanted is a joint venture between Judy McGrath (former Chairperson/CEO MTV Networks) and Sony Music Entertainment.

The studio believes that before format, platform, cast, before everything else comes compelling stories and characters. Because nothing works if the story doesn’t.

The studio uses its own social media platforms and channels like one giant creative incubator: a place to experiment with everything from new talent to new formats to new platforms. This learning deeply informs the development and helps a project stay ahead of the ever-shifting media landscape


  • Focused on developing premium episodic series, built for traditional or OTT platforms; Movies, and Experimental storytelling on social platforms
  • Launched “Fight Club”, an incubator to launch transmedia projects
  • Based in Los Angeles and New York 
  • 1480 Vine Street, Los Angeles, CA 90028
