With the start of the new year, we take a look back at the top 25 media personalities who stood out in the Australian media landscape in 2015.
Director of Network Production, Seven
With international imports relevance to Australian broadcast TV on the decline and Seven making a strong play internationally with production houses established in the UK and the US, production is rapidly taking on an ever-increasing importance at Seven, with Lyons at the heart of it. In the US, 7Beyond has a series My Lottery Dream Home set to enter production for Scripps channel HGTV in early 2016 and the 12-part factual Boy To Man under way for The Travel Channel. The UK JV
7 Wonder, meanwhile, has just picked up its first children’s commission, the 25-part Do You Know? for CBeebies. Locally, a production highlight for Lyons was undoubtedly the very well received new hit series 800 Words. Heading into 2016, Seven is primed for success with the two-part bio-drama Molly, and the promising new Jessica Mauboy music-focused drama The Secret Daughter.
