Tony Jackson Executive Producer
Tony Jackson has spent more than 25 years making television, earning his first stripes at the BBC as a teenager before building his reputation and risking life and limb making docos of career criminals in London’s East End. He went on to secure one of the best jobs in the world, travelling the globe directing and producing much of Lonely Planet’s television output for almost a decade. His personal highlight was the SBS ratings hit Going Bush with athlete Cathy Freeman and actor Deborah Mailman; the low point a near-death experience caught on camera in Doha – an event swiftly turned into a viral short-form video. When not crashing into the back of Qatari taxis, Tony has a penchant for safari suits, Kurt Vonnegut and Northern Soul.
David Collins Development Producer
David scored his first gig on British magazines by second-guessing where the apostrophes might go, stumbled into web publishing while hitchhiking down the digital superhighway, and accidentally shuffled into television by co-founding Lonely Planet Television in 2001. Since then he’s written and developed more than a dozen successful TV series. He is inspired by cavalier talk, random acts of kindness, and dirt underneath his fingernails.
