Profile image for Ross Jennings

Ross Jennings

Producer, Executive

One of NZ’s most experienced and prolific TV producers, Ross Jennings cut his teeth at Avalon in the late 1970s on dramas like Close to Home and Moynihan. After stints as Head of Drama at TVNZ and at Crawfords in Melbourne, he began a long association with Screentime Communicado where he created early reality TV series Middlemore, and Police 10-7. Jennings passed away on 25 March 2016.

I have absolute faith in the New Zealand audience. Once they become comfortable with our own sounds and stories their appetite for local drama will grow and grow ... but you have to give New Zealanders good product, made with heart and passion and integrity. Ross Jennings, in a June 1992 Evening Post interview
