Josh is SBS’s Commissioning Editor of Entertainment and Food where he oversees the Entertainment, Factual Entertainment and Food slates.
This slate encompasses network events such as the Eurovision Song Contest, Eurovision: Australia Decides and the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras. Other shows include the popular 6pm quiz show Mastermind as well as Celebrity Mastermind, Going Places with Ernie Dingo, Child Genius as well as myriad live network events. On the Food front, Josh oversees SBS’s popular food programming line-up including SBS Food’s flagship, 200 episode The Cook Up with Adam Liaw, Gourmet Farmer, Food Safari and Luke Nguyen, Palisa Anderson and more.
For Fact Ent/Entertainment: Smart, entertaining, on-charter series to suit a Saturday night audience. Should be 1 hour episodes, not half hours. For Food: We only commission for SBS Food, not SBS main channel. Low cost half hours or 1 hours, with established, authentic and authoritative hosts. Can be travel, comedy, competition – but all shows need to have a finance plan with majority third party financing.
