Amanda Duthie will depart SBS as Acting Head of Scripted this week.
Since 2019 she has helped to steer its largest ever drama slate, including 2021 dramas New Gold Mountain and The Unusual Suspects.
A spokesperson confirmed, “Amanda has made an incredible contribution while acting in the role over the last 12 months, during a really busy period with a number of projects in development and production which she has brilliantly steered. She will be missed, but we wish her all the very best.”
Duthie stepped in following the departure of Sue Masters. Prior to being the Head of Production & Development & Studios at the South Australian Film Corporation, she was previously the Creative Director/CEO of the Adelaide Film Festival and Head of Arts & Entertainment at ABC.
Stan declined to comment on speculation Duthie would take up a role in Scripted.
