Taking Playmaker Global, armed with good writers

Sara Richardson adds another twist to her development exec career as she moves back to Playmaker and a role between Sydney and LA owners.

Development executive Sara Richardson has been enticed back into Playmaker Media after three happy years as network drama executive at Ten. As she said in an interview with Screenhub, ‘It was a very, very sad goodbye. I absolutely loved my time with Ten. I worked with Rick Maier on Wrong Girl, developing and producing from his side. It was invaluable working in a Network, with all its decision making parts.’

Now she is about to become an executive producer, ‘working across the extensive Playmaker slate both in Australia and with Sony Pictures Television International’s LA creative team,’ in the words of the release.
