Event Details


Our first Junkee Take On, about taboo topics in comedy, was a sell-out success; you can watch the highlights here

For the next Take On, we present CHANGING THE CHANNEL:


"There’s a digital and political revolution happening on your screens. 

With the move from TV to the web and the rise of new platforms, there are more shows to watch, more ways to watch them, and more ways to spoil them, too.


There's a greater variety of voices on our screens, but whose stories still need to be told? Can TV be an instrument of social change? How is Australia’s output stacking up against the rest of the globe?


And what will the future of television look like for creators, critics and the audience?"


 Join our panel of experts as we take on TV in Australia and beyond; how television can change the world; the evolution of an industry; and all that lies between:


CLAUDIA KARVAN: An actress, writer and producer, Claudia was inducted into the Australian Film Walk of Fame in 2007 for her contributions to the Australian film and TV industry. She starred in The Secret Life Of Us, Puberty Blues andThe Time Of Our Lives, and produced and starred in Love My Way and Spirited.

PATRICK ABBOUD: Pat is a Walkley-nominated storyteller and documentarian working across TV, radio and online. He reports and produces for The Feed (SBS2), which he created the initial concept for, and is a VJ on Dateline (SBS). He co-hosted and directed content for both the 2014 and this year's SBS Mardi Gras broadcast, and runs his own production company.


TIM CLUCAS: Tim is one of the most experienced television executives in Australia. After seven years as the network head of production and development at Network Ten, and five years as the director of programming at FremantleMedia (where he worked on top rating shows like Big Brother, The X Factor and Masterchef), he is currently a consultant to the industry about programming, audience and strategy in the broadcast and digital world. 


NAKKIAH LUI: A writer, playwright and actor, and Gamillario and Torres Strait Islander woman, Nakkiah starred in and co-wrote for ABC's Black Comedy.Recipient of numerous awards for her work across the arts, she was a playwright in residence at Belvoir from 2012-2014, where her most recent play Kill The Messenger enjoyed an acclaimed run. 


The panel will be moderated by Junkee TV critic MATT RODEN, with more guests and special contributors to be announced.
