Entertainment

At SBS, we are tasked with informing, educating and entertaining all Australians in a way that reflects Australia’s multi-cultural and diverse society. Our entertainment slate include Landmark events such as Eurovision and Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras, as well as factual entertainment series Child Genius.

Entertainment and Factual Entertainment programming needs to be smart, original and of course, entertaining with a strong focus on diversity and a distinctive SBS flavour. We are looking for new cost-effective formats or series that play with form and content and ideally are cross platform. They need to be bold, and cut through the noise. These formats could be studio or field based. They could be fixed rig, hidden camera, social experiments or presenter led. We are committed to identifying and nurturing new diverse on-air talent.

Entertainment and Factual Entertainment shows or events need to be distinctive and appeal to an audience that may not traditionally watch SBS platforms.
