Bauer’s TV WEEK is using its latest issue to celebrate women, with the release of its inaugural list of Next Gen Women of Australian television.
The 13-page feature story showcases 37 women who are leading in their field within the Australian television industry. From actresses to writers, producers to reality stars, these women epitomise the modern face of Australian entertainment.
Curated by TV WEEK Editor Thomas Woodgate, the feature is a ‘who’s who’ of the next generation of women changing the face of Australian television.
This year’s list features an array of incredible talent including Picnic at Hanging Rock star Samara Weaving, LA based actress Eliza Scanlen of HBO series Sharp Objects, co-writer and lead actress of Top End Wedding, Miranda Tapsell, and comedian Hannah Gadsby.
The feature follows Screen Australia’s recent update to their 2015 Gender Matters initiatives promise; Australians are now seeing women occupy at least 50 per cent of creative roles in Australia.
Woodgate commented: “We are very excited to share this incredible group of women with our readers. Australia’s amazing young talent are not only doing us proud on the international stage, but also in our own backyard.
“TV WEEK is a passionate supporter of diversity in entertainment, and it’s wonderful to see such a creative group of game changing women leading the charge in this industry. This is the first time we’ve created this special and we hope we to continue it in years to come.”
