Production has begun on Lune Media’s three-part documentary series Could You Survive on the Breadline?, developed and financed by SBS with the support of Screen Australia and Screen NSW.
Filming will take place in Sydney and regional New South Wales.
Lune Founder and Managing Director Leonie Lowe said, “I’m delighted to be working with the brilliant team at SBS and would like to thank Screen Australia and Screen NSW for their support. The series is another of our concepts developed to help lead conversation and debate on crucial community issues.
“We are committed to exploring ways to do things differently, to set in motion change and to deliver award winning work Lune Media is known for.”
Could You Survive on the Breadline? is executive produced by David Galloway and Leonie Lowe whose credits include Fight for Planet A, War on Waste, Bullied and Struggle Street. Series Producer is Ashley Davies (Struggle Street S3).
Head of Content at Screen Australia Sally Caplan said, “Lune Media have a strong track record of delivering topical information in an accessible way and I look forward to seeing them explore the nuance around financial disadvantage in upcoming SBS series Could You Survive on the Breadline?”
Screen Australia and Screen NSW previously announced finance for Lune Media’s one-hour documentary Can You Prevent Suicide? (working title) also for SBS which is part of the Australia Uncovered strand to-air later this year. The program will investigate why suicide is happening and reveal what is being done across the country to try and solve the problem.
The documentary was developed by Executive Producer / Writer Paul Scott and is co-executive produced by Jodi Boylan, David Galloway and Leonie Lowe.
Launching over the Easter break is Lune Media’s COVID-19 pandemic one-hour specials (2 x 60mins), What the Hell Just Happened? and What the Hell Happens Next? on 10, executive produced by David Galloway, ex-Foxtel production lead Duane Hatherly and director Jodi Boylan.
