TV series offers more than 500 jobs for QLD

THREE TV series will be filmed in Queensland in 2015, creating more than 500 jobs and injecting millions into the state.

The Newman LNP Government’s investment in TV production will see Queensland’s screen industry boom.

Arts Minister Ian Walker said the popular Mako television show would return with filming of a third series of Mako: Island of Secrets starting on the Gold Coast in 2015.


Series two for The Code, an ABC political thriller, and The Family Law, a six-part series to show on SBS, will also be filmed in Queensland.

“In the past couple of years we’ve brought Unbroken, San Andreas and Modern Family to Queensland, with Pirates of the Caribbean filming here next year,” Mr Walker said.

“We’ve achieved a lot, but there’s a lot more we want to do.

“Screen Queensland is investing about $1.5 million into these three new TV productions, which are expected to reap returns of about $10.9 million in Queensland Production Expenditure to the state’s economy and create hundreds of jobs.”
