Aussie writer to be honoured by US Publicists

Australian writer and NCIS Executive Producer Shane Brennan will be honoured for his extraordinary 'showmanship.'

Australian writer and NCIS Executive Producer Shane Brennan will be honoured by America’s ICG Publicists.

Brennan, who also oversees NCIS: Los Angeles will be feted at the publicist society’s 2010 awards in March, receiving a small-screen showmanship award.

“Shane has been described as a whirl of energy, producing, writing and editing episodes of two of television biggest hits,” awards committee chairman Henri Bollinger said. “He also has a keen sense of what will attract an audience. Something we call showmanship.”

Last year’s recipient was Chuck Lorre.

Brennan joined Crawfords Productions as a scriptwriter on Cop Shop and later wrote for State Coroner, Embassy, The Flying Doctors, All Together Now, The Man From Snowy River, Stingers, McLeod’s Daughters and Blue Heelers.

Brennan says he finally left Australia after he and a friend were told a programme idea they pitched to a local TV network was ‘stupid.’ A similar idea later emerged via another writer with Cold Case.

  1. Well Done to him, he really has turned NCIS into one of the powerhouse dramas on TV in the last 2 years. Its rates what, 21 million + per week in the US and didnt drop any of its audience against the American Idol Premiere.

  2. Shane Brennan is one of Australia’s greatest ever entertainment exports. The success of NCIS in Australia and the US and elsewhere is simply amazing.
    He must be a squillionaire by now?
