About me

Lisa Gray is an award-winning Executive Producer and content creator with extensive experience across both television and multiplatform technologies. Her diverse background has fostered her distinct focus on dynamic and resonant content for today’s hungry audience, and as one the country’s leading interactive producers, she is committed to engaging and empowering that audience through the exciting opportunities created by our shifting new media landscape. A passionate advocate for social media and interactive storytelling, she is highly regarded for her ability to facilitate cross-industry collaborations and driving property diversification across new medias. Lisa’s expertise and unique international perspective has been sought for numerous industry panels, presentations, and correspondent and mentoring roles both locally and internationally for the likes of MIPTV, MIPCom, SPAA, Mumbrella 360, X Media Lab and the Australian Film Television and Radio School. She has also judged for both the International Emmys and the International Digital Emmys. As Head of Content for The Feds since 2007, she has spearheaded the development of a number of television projects and interactive initiatives for the Australian, UK and US markets encompassing everything from branded content to factual to entertainment to online experiences. She executive produced the award-winning interactive music format Stay Tuned (now sold into 20 countries) and The Feds’ first international commission, piloting The New Crowd for MTV US. In 2014, Lisa secured the MIPFormats International Pitch Prize with the hybrid format Zombie Bootcamp, currently in development with Warner Brothers International. Prior to this role, Lisa worked as a Senior Video Producer for 3 Mobile and was responsible for their first in-house daily news and entertainment show, Now on Planet 3, streamed directly to mobile devices. Having worked across a diverse range of genres in television broadcast over the years including drama, documentary, branded entertainment, light entertainment, reality, music and live studio television, Lisa has a deep appreciation for the power of good, old-fashioned storytelling whatever the form. She is well versed with Australia’s state and federal government funding initiatives and is a regular attendee of major industry conferences and events both locally and overseas. Off the clock, she loves her fishing, footy, red wine and as a die-hard romantic, won’t ever say no to a good rom-com.
