CARLY HEATON, Drama Development Executive at Foxtel will be receiving pitches at SMC 2018.

Foxtel seeks returning series or short runs and looks for high concept stories, high production values, the ability to attract big names in front of and behind the camera and unique stories and worlds that can’t be found on Free to Air TV, e.g. why would people pay for something they can get for free?

Research their channels and the kinds of shows they commission. Previous and current drama series on Foxtel include: The Kettering Incident, Wentworth, A Place to Call Home, Secret City and the recently released television remake of the classic feature film Picnic at Hanging Rock.

The Screen Makers Conference is a key project of Adelaide's Media Resource Centre to accelerate the careers of emerging and regional screen content makers.
