Playmaker productions are created with the belief that empowered writers and unbroken authorship are the key to great television drama.
Scribe is an ongoing Showrunner development initiative which brings together some of Australia’s most talented drama writers to nurture both their ideas and their producer capability. Scribe sees groups of leading Australian writers develop drama series concepts together over an extended period of time.
Since the Scribe initiative commenced in 2011, four original primetime drama series have been produced for Australian networks. Participants have included Drew Proffitt (House Husbands) Matt Ford (Slide, Hiding) Shelley Birse (The Code), and Sarah Lambert (Love Child).
