Blank Canvas: Series Trailer

Blank Canvas is a newly created SAP Original Series by Emmy-winning showrunners, writers, and directors from shows including The Daily Show, The Late Late Show with James Corden, The Soup, and many more. 

We launch with a three-episode miniseries. Each episode focuses on a broad topic, and each segment investigates a particular angle to that topic intelligently, humorously, and, most importantly, conversationally – all on a canvas that brings to life the stories of industries, companies, and individuals driving change. 

Blank Canvas: Socially Conscious Sports

Passionate fans have pushed professional sports to put social justice initiatives front and center. This show takes an in-depth look at how European football, the NHL, and the NBA were vocal about social issues in 2020, with interviews with NBA executives and golf superstar Cameron Champ providing an inside look at how athletes and executives are experiencing changes in the industry.

Blank Canvas: Fashion Forward

From footwear to jeans to high fashion, the fashion industry is making positive environmental changes due to pressure from passionate consumers pushing for change. With profiles of companies such as Allbirds, Adidas, Levi’s, and Gucci, plus interviews with supermodel Karlie Kloss and Eon CEO Natasha Franck, this show takes an in-depth look at how the fashion business is changing. 

Blank Canvas: Serving Sustainability

From food waste in America to plastic packaging waste in Ghana, this show explores how the food and beverage industry is confronting major environmental challenges and how passionate consumers are driving positive changes in the industry. Looking at tuna company Bumble Bee’s sustainability initiatives, Coca-Cola’s efforts to fight water waste, and the European Plastics Pact, this episode of Blank Canvas shows how businesses, consumers, and governments are working together to make environmental changes. And an interview with World Wildlife Federation’s Erin Simon provides a look at changes to come.
