Nunn, along with director Ben Taylor, Netflix and Eleven take us inside Netflix’s hit comedy-drama Sex Education. We hear more about the focus of championing new and young talent, tackling delicate subject areas, the creative direction of the show and what’s in store for season two.

Strauss, along with See Saw Films, Foxtel and Sky will lift the lid on upcoming series The End. Taking us inside concept to screen, we’ll explore the creative ambition, partnerships and challenges of balancing the hard-hitting subject matter of euthanasia with creating an entertaining drama.
