170628 SBS NITV Roadshow v2The SBS and NITV commissioning team will be embarking on a national road show where they will discuss and provide updates on their commissioning slate and ambitions for 2017-18.

They will be holding one-on-one Pitch Sessions and a networking presentation.

This is an invaluable opportunity for local industry to hear about future programming decisions, content trends for the broadcaster and most importantly a chance to meet the commissioning team.

Pitch Sessions – from 3:00pm to 5:00pm at Fielder Street Creative

Separate pitches will be taking place for NITV, Unscripted (Documentary, Food and factual-entertainment) and Scripted.

Please read the SBS / NITV brief for pitches document that outlines the type of projects they are looking for prior to requesting a pitch meeting.

Pitches are 15 minutes each.  The commissioners will not have prior knowledge of the proposals so you will need to give your best “elevator pitch” within the 15 minute timeslot.
The following NITV/SBS representatives are available for pitch meetings:

  • NITV – Tanya Orman (Channel Manager) and Cieron Cody (Commissioning Editor)
  • Unscripted (Documentary, Food and Factual entertainment) – Joseph Maxwell (Head of Documentaries) and Susie Jones (Commissioning Editor)
  • Scripted – Sue Masters (Head of Scripted) and Karen Radzyner (Commissioning Editor)
