What is the gold standard for television development? Is our process here in Australia good enough or do we need to do things differently to be competitive in the globalised commissioning environment?

Join a panel of some of Australia’s most prolific creators including; Tony Ayres (Executive Producer at Tony Ayres Productions and Creator of international smash-hit Clickbait), Debbie Lee (Director of Scripted Development at Matchbox Pictures), Sally Riley (Head of Scripted at ABC) and Belinda Chayko (award-winning Showrunner and Writer for projects including Safe Harbour, Stateless and Fires) as they discuss one of the most pressing issues faced by the Australian industry - what should writers rooms of the future look like and what do we need to change in Australia to develop successful projects that are picked up in the international market-place.
