Join start to finish TV show creation in new podcast
NOVA Entertainment and the Daddos team up to take you behind the curtain with the new podcast So You Want To Make A TV Show.
So You Want To Make A TV Show is a new Nova Podcast that takes you behind the curtain of the creative process, showing you exactly what it takes to go from a blank piece of paper to someone screaming ‘action!’
Launching on 6 April, join Andrew and Cameron Daddo as they create their very first TV show by roping in industry heavyweights including an Emmy Award nominee and Golden Globe winner, to help them to make their vision a reality.
This series is an eye-opening look at the work that goes into creating the ‘magic’ of television.
Australian television royalty, the Daddo brothers have carved out successful acting and presenting careers since bursting onto our screens in the 80s.
Andrew Daddo has had a crack at just about every aspect of the entertainment industry, from TV and radio to podcasts, authoring 28 books for kids of all ages – and even acting. So You Want To Make A TV Show is a testament to that.
“I think we’ve all had that moment where we thought we’ve come up with something brilliant, and within minutes or hours you quit because of the pitfalls and holes in the logic,” Andrew said.
“What I love about this podcast is that Cam and I managed to hang on whilst set adrift, somehow managing to make something that’s fun, but also quite insightful. It’s proof that the team is bigger than the individual.”
“Our simple idea was the first step – the footings if you like, then everyone else added their pieces… together, we seem to have plugged a few of those holes and the house we’ve built is pretty nice. Wobbly, but nice.”
Cameron Daddo shot to prominence as host of the dating show Perfect Match Australia and when he met his wife, model Alison Brahe.
With two TV Week Logie Awards to his name and as his TV, film and stage career was taking off, Cameron and Alison decided to try their luck in LA.
Over the next 25 years, Cam appeared in countless high profile TV shows and films. On his return to Australia in 2017, he joined smoothfm as an evening announcer and continues to be seen on stage and TV. He has also won a loyal following by hosting the popular podcast Separate Bathrooms alongside his wife Alison.
“I’m always curious about the ‘what if’s’ in life. Andrew and I put ourselves out there on the edge of a creative idea. What would happen if we sat down with a blank sheet of paper in front of us with the intent of creating our own TV show or movie? What if we recorded the conversations?” Cameron said.
“We’re both creative beings, we’re brothers, and we enjoy each other’s company, but we’ve never worked together. We’re both deeply ingrained in the podcast world, so why not delve into the world of making an original TV show? The NOVA podcasting team are innovative, creative and were willing to take a chance, so it was a perfect fit.”
Rachael Corbett, NOVA Entertainment’s Head of Podcasts and Digital Content said, “There are so many conversations, brainstorms and rejections that take place before a television series makes it onto your screens and we wanted to give people an understanding of that process.”
“The Daddo brothers have had a huge amount of experience in all forms of media but they’ve never made a TV show so we wanted to follow them and see if we could actually go from a blank piece of paper to fully-fledged TV show concept in less than ten episodes.”
