Castle Pictures, Inc. is a creative, passionate and diligent new production house based in Manhattan that creates original scripted and unscripted content for global distribution. We use moving images to tell stories, both real and imagined, that reveal a fresh perspective on humanity – our drive, ingenuity, curiosity, frailty, worst fears and greatest triumphs.
The company was founded in 2011 by Christopher Cassel (pron. “Castle”), a Primetime Emmy award-winning producer, writer and director who has spent the past decade circling the globe to bring the world’s greatest characters, memories and wonders into living rooms everywhere for networks including History, Discovery, Science, Animal Planet, A&E, TLC and Bravo. Most recently, Chris served as supervising producer and writer on "Rising: Rebuilding Ground Zero," a six-hour mini-series event that premiered on Discovery Channel and Science Channel in August 2011. Steven Spielberg presided as Executive Producer.
Castle Pictures is developing a promising slate of epic, immersive and transformational stories borne out of exploration, travel, history, the natural world, engineering, sports and every day American life.
Castle Pictures takes audiences into worlds they couldn’t otherwise reach…while revealing something new about their own world.
Castle Pictures is life…on screen.
