About Stephen Peters
I have been a television producer and executive for over twenty five years with a career spanning virtually all aspects of television production. I'm a MULTI-AWARD WINNING executive producer and have overseen some of the highest rating programs on Australian television. I've produced current affairs, lifestyle, reality, documentary and studio light entertainment. I was the executive producer for the first series of Logie winning ‘Australian Idol’ for Channel Ten and Fremantle Media (at the time, the finale was the highest rating show ever on channel Ten). I was the Creative Development Director for Endemol Southern Star and also set up the Australian office for multi-national production company Eyeworks TV and was Head of Television. I was also the creator and executive producer of the Eyeworks series ‘Gangs of Oz’, series1&2 for the Seven Network and was the executive producer of the record breaking and Astra award winning factual series 'Kalgoorlie Cops'? on Foxtel. Previously I was executive producer for numerous programs with the Nine Network including Logie nominated ‘Australian Survivor'?, 'Weddings'? and the creator of a number of original formats (seven broadcast series and two pilots) including the award winning women’s prison factual series ‘Doing Time’. I've recently produced three episodes of Murder Uncovered for the Seven Network (including winning a Queensland media Clarion Award- feature documentary) & as EP for the Nine Network on 'True Medical', 'Inside Crime' and 'This time next year- series 2' I have a solid understanding of local and international television markets and fondness for a good format and have a passion for creating original content based on good story-telling. I'm also currently developing projects in the digital and social media space. I'm dedicated to producing quality television as a highly experienced company executive and I believe the way forward is in innovation in storytelling and content.
