What will the future of television look like for creators, critics and the audience? Come to Sydney’s Giant Dwarf Theatre tomorrow night to the Junkee Take On: Changing the Chanel panel discussion featuring Claudia Karvan, Patrick Abboud, Tim Clucas and Nakkiah Lui.

The second in our Junkee Take On Series (the first one was a sell-out), we’ll be slinging around some ideas about the digital revolution happening on our screens, what it means for us, and where it is going.


CLAUDIA KARVAN is an actress, writer and producer whose name has already made you deeply nostalgic for The Secret Life Of Us. More recently she’s starred in Puberty BluesThe Time Of Our Lives, and co-wrote and produced the Logie Award-winning drama Love My Way.

PATRICK ABBOUD is a producer and reporter on SBS2’s The Feed and a VJ on SBS’ Dateline. He has also been the director and co-host of the Mardi Gras broadcast on SBS for the past two years. 

TIM CLUCAS is one of the most experienced television executives in Australia. He was Head of Production and Development at Network Ten and worked on top-rating shows like Big Brother, The X Factor and Masterchef; for five years he was the Director of Programming at FremantleMedia; and now he is a consultant to the industry on programming, audience and strategy in the broadcast and digital environments.

NAKKIAH LUI is a writer and star on ABC’s brilliant Black Comedy. She is also know for her theatrical work Kill The Messenger, which staged at Belvoir.

MATT RODEN, our TV critic who recently declared TV was “broke for the better”, will be leading the discussion.
