Since its formation in 1999, Stick Figure has developed and produced films and series for over 40 television networks and digital platforms. 

Founded by Oscar nominated filmmaker, Steven Cantor, Stick Figure has specialized in character driven docu-series such as HBO's Family Bonds (HBO), Kimora: Life in the Fab Lane (E!/Style), American Gypsies (National Geographic) and Catching Hell (The Weather Channel.)

In 2013, Stick Figure was acquired by Ora TV, the digital network owned by Carlos Slim, forming a strategic alliance that has added the potential of significant marketing, financing and distribution capabilities to Stick Figure’s productions.
