THE WATERCOOLER EFFECT
Network Seven ended 2014 as the number one network for the 8th year in a row (in Total People and Weeks Won) and is still consistently kicking goals in 2015 with its crowd pleasing Reality shows MKR and House Rules, programming stalwarts Home and Away, Sunrise and Better Homes and Gardens, not to mention their AFL broadcasts and popular dramas like Catching Milat, How To Get Away with Murder and Winners and Losers. Behind the scenes of this massive success story are two people: Director of Production, Brad Lyons and Director of Programming, Angus Ross. This month at TV Talks we’ll get the chance to meet Angus and look into the “Dark Art” of programming a commercial TV network in Australia today. We’ll also explore his personal back story, his thoughts about the power of the “Watercooler Effect” and take look into the crystal ball called “The Future of TV” with him.
