Pierre Puget is a French writer and director based in Berlin.

After film school, Pierre worked in Brussels for eight years as a broadcast TV and commercial director.

With a growing desire to create fictions, Pierre moved to Berlin in 2015 to be a participant in the Serial Eyes programme for TV writing. There, he met an impressive network of international writers and learned a lot about his craft.

In 2017, Pierre wrote and shot the pilot for PING PONG, a short comedy format about Berlin.

In 2018, his WW2 horror TV series DIE STADT (co-written with Elena Lyubarskaya) received funding for development from the French CNC.

Pierre also works as a script consultant and teaches screenwriting.

He co-founded and still preside over SEAN, the Serial Eyes Alumni Network, organising many events all over Europe.

Pierre is currently developing TV and movie projects, in English or French: NOS FANTÔMES, a science-fiction drama series for 24-25 Films (Paris); AFTER THE CRASH, a Tv movie for Film Network (Cologne); EQ, an anticipation thriller series for Same Player (France), TSINGTAO! a period drama for TV60 (Munich), and a few more crazy ideas.
