The Australian Broadcasting Corporation, Screen Australia, Komixx Entertainment and bestselling author and broadcaster Simon Mayo discuss their successful cross-border collaboration, on adapting British children’s book series Itch in to a gripping Australian kids live-action television drama. In a global environment where programming for children is challenging, the panel will touch on key universal themes in the series including science, empowering youth, and the current wave of youth activism on climate change. With stunning set locations and attractive co-production opportunities, the panel will also explore what is currently driving the vibrant Australian production industry, why it is a great place to produce television, and how to leverage global partnerships to create content that travels.
