Bailey Mackey

Producer [Ngāti Porou, Tuhoe, Rongowhakaata]

Bailey Mackey's first television job was as a reporter for Māori news programme Te Karere. Later, while Head of Sport for Māori Television, he created long-running sports show Code. Mackey established companies Black Inc Media and Pango Productions, and co-created high profile 2012 reality series The GC. He also sold the format for Pango's hit show Sidewalk Karaoke to global company FremantleMedia.

He's like a guy with three brains — the one in his head, the one in his heart and the one in his gut — and that's what you need to make it in TV production internationally. Kiwi television veteran Julie Christie on Bailey Mackey, in The NZ Herald, 19 June 2016
