News Junkies rocks Sydney

The News Junkies team are assembling in Sydney this weekend to attend a Screen Australia web series workshop.

The workshop will see all the web series teams, who won support from Screen Australia's Gender Matters Brilliant Stories program, come together to work with screenwriter Mike Jones, Mamma Mia co-founder Mia Freedman, and multi-award winning television and digital content producer Jackie Turnure.

Emma Masters has been in Melbourne and will fly in and join Kristy O'Brien who is travelling direct from Darwin. Their co-creator Lucy McNally is a Sydney-sider already.

The three women intend to use the opportunity to work together in person, following countless skype calls and sharing documents online.

News Junkies follows Bondi princess and rookie journalist Elle Walker as she deals with working in a tabloid newsroom in Darwin.

Weave Films received development support from Screen Australia's Gender Matters program to develop a pilot script and outline for the series.
