Philip Smith

Producer

Television producer Philip Smith made his name with a stable of internationally-successful sports programmes. These days, as head of production company Great Southern Film and Television, he has been expanding from comic shows like Eating Media Lunch into other fields — including reality shows (Rescue 1), Moa-nominated telemovie The Kick and 2008 movie Apron Strings

I thought I’d build a company with a couple of good shows and be comfortable. But in a way it’s my nature to grow things. I can’t stop myself. Philip Smith
