Shane Brennan supports Playmakers’ Scribe Showrunner Initiative

Scribe was launched in 2011 with the support of Screen Australia’s Enterprise Program.

Inaugural participants Matt Ford (Panic at Rock Island, Slide) and Shelly Birse (Lockie Leonard, Wildside) are both currently in broadcaster funded development on their own Scribe projects.

Another Scribe success story is the newly announced Nine Network series, House Husbands, co-created by Drew Proffitt and Ellie Beaumont.

House Husbands is a 10 part drama series about four Australian families with one thing in common: the men are in charge of raising the kids.

Filming commenced in Melbourne this week.

In the next few weeks, Shane Brennan will mentor three of the 2012 participants: Blake Ayshford (Love My Way, The Straits), Sarah Lambert (Love My Way, Dance Academy) and Giula Sandler (McLeod’s Daughters, Rescue: Special Ops).
