Exclusive: Andrew Denton’s next project, Project NEXT, has been retitled to Hungry Beast.
Earlier this year the show put out the call for people aged 18-30 to work as reporters, producers, camera/directors, editors, graphic artists, researchers and web content producers.
Leaning heavily (though not exclusively) towards documentary, factual, news and current affairs, Zapruder’s Other Films has been scouring the land for “the next generation” of Australian broadcasters, in both on-air and off-air talent.
Hungry Beast will be a 10 part half hour series to screen on ABC1, ABC2, the web, mobile phones and online.
Denton is an executive producer of the series and is not expected to appear in the show.
Updated: Premieres on ABC1 at 9pm, and also as a daily web program, from 30 September 2009 and available on iView from midnight on Wednesday 30 September. To be shown on ABC2 from Thursday 1 October at 8.30pm. A weekly, topical TV show and daily web program, Hungry Beast is a new look at the world based on one instruction: Tell us something that we don’t know.
