Running Free Live: Think Bigger! How to spin a single idea into a franchise | Refresh your TV format

Now’s the time to think big with your ideas and ditch the endless cycle of development.

Refresh your thinking in this session featuring the amazing Australian producers who make a living out of creating and reinventing formats for audiences in this country and around the world.

How did the idea of renovating one room become 'The Block' – a hugely successful returning series? What do you need to do to create a quiz like 'The Chase' that shows on screens around the world? Is it really possible for an Australian comedy to be successfully adapted for international audiences?

All of these questions – and more – will be answered during this session.

This session is followed by the opportunity to network and ask questions of our guests in our Zoom chat room (the Zoom link will be posted here on the day of the event).
