The current SBS Entertainment/ Factual Entertainment commissioned slate includes RocKwiz, Eurovision and Global Village. Other recent programs have included Behind the Front Door, a factual entertainment series where people discover remarkable stories about their neighbours and Sex: An Unnatural History marking 50 years of the sexual revolution in Australia. Murundak: songs of freedom is a feature length documentary following The Black Arm Band, composed of many Australia’s finest Indigenous performers, as they tour Australia. It’s an exciting mix of programs across the schedule.We are committed to a number of on-going shows, so there are very limited opportunities for new commissions at present. Consequently ideas and formats need to be extremely strong to be considered.
We want programs to have a distinctive SBS flavour, which means they should feel contemporary and be reflective of modern, multicultural Australia. If they are focused on talent we want to know who that talent is and to be sure you have them on board. Your ideas should be smart and content rich. We prefer the possibility of returning series and runs between 6 and 12 episodes.
We are not looking for:
Series featuring people on a 'journey of discovery'
Mates travelling the world to have amazing experiences
Drama, Comedy and Entertainment Proposals
