BBC Studios Australia is looking to expand further into premium scripted production and partnering on local projects. They have just appointed Warren Clarke (Executive Producer ‘Wellmania‘) as Head of Scripted as they develop more premium productions and Australia specific versions of existing shows.
Kylie Washington, GM and Creative Director, Production said:
“This is an exciting time for BBC Studios, we have big ambitions for the scripted side of our business with some announcements coming later this year. There is a real appetite globally for Australian produced drama. Warren’s local creative expertise, coupled with BBC Studios’ brilliant drama catalogue, international contacts and proven ability to fund content, mean we are in a great position to capitalise on that.”
More production means more jobs! This is great news for the local industry.
Watch this space…
