Here’s one for true fans of Australian television, an interview with Posie Graeme-Evans on the ABC’s Talking Heads.
Graeme-Evans co-created both McLeod’s Daughters and Hi-5 for the Nine Network, and rose high in its ranks as Director of Drama for Nine from 2002 to 2005. In such a blokey industry, she is one of too few women in television to have held a managerial role.
Earlier this year Nine bought the production company Kids Like Us and the Hi-5 brand with Southern Star.
It screens at 6:30pm Monday October 6th on ABC1.
This week on Talking Heads, Peter Thompson talks to Posie Graeme-Evans, creator of the smash hit TV shows McLeod’s Daughters and Hi-5, which can now be seen around the world. Her medieval romance novels are best sellers. In one sense she lives in a fantasy world, dreaming up stories, but to sell those ideas she’s had to become a formidable wheeler-dealer.
