Entertainment

We are committed to the challenge of finding, developing and commissioning programs that entertain, surprise and provoke conversation across a range of SBS platforms.

Entertaining programming needs to be smart, original and content rich and should ultimately have a strong focus on diversity and a distinctive SBS flavour.

If performance or presenter based, we need to gauge why you think they're right for the role and if they are suitable SBS talent. It's worth thinking about channels and timeslots - where your idea might play and the imaginative ways of engaging our audiences.

In Entertainment, we currently have Eurovision and the broadcast of the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras 2017.

If you’ve not had work in this genre before, please ensure you have an experienced television producer with a track record in entertainment attached to your project.

Diversity Talent Escalator
SBS and the screen agencies are collaborating to fund a new Diversity Talent Escalator to secure genuine,  flexible, on-the-job, paid learning and immersion for emerging screen practitioners from diverse backgrounds on ALL SBS commissioned programs including documentary, factual entertainment, food, comedy and/or drama programs.

Aside from practical training, the scheme will provide vital networking opportunities, hands-on experience/credit, and increase the chance of securing further work with other companies in the screen sector.
