Michael Carrington, former ABC Australia content chief, launches indie

TV industry veteran Michael Carrington has launched a new production company in partnership with Wagtail Productions. The firm is called SeeView Productions, and aims to bring high-quality scripted content to Australian and international audiences.

The Australia-based firm is led by Carrington and Wagtail’s Angela Faria, a producer who has worked on numerous TV and film projects, including feature documentary Sheer Will. Carrington, whose career has taken him via the BBC, Turner Broadcasting and Banijay Group, was director of content at Australia’s ABC until September 2022.

SeeView’s first project will be a contemporary black comedy titled A Gift and a Curse. Created by Angela Faria and Craig Proudley, the series explores various aspects of mental health, particularly through the lens of young adult experiences.

Speaking about the new partnership, Michael Carrington said, “I’m thrilled to be partnering with Angela Faria and Craig Proudley on our first project. We share a passion for delivering compelling content that resonates with audiences, and I believe that this partnership will allow us to achieve that goal.”

Angela Faria added: “Working with Michael Carrington is a fantastic opportunity, and together with my co-creator Craig Proudley, we’re looking forward to bringing our combined expertise and vision to life in A Gift and a Curse.”
