Mako Mermaids screens Friday July 26th at 4pm on Network Ten

July 3, 2013

Any parents of school age kids out there? I’ve just wrapped the new children’s TV series Mako Mermaids by legendary producer Jonathan M. Shiff (Ocean girl, Wicked Science, H20: Just add water, The Elephant Princess, Horace and Tina, Pirate Islands and the list goes on). The series is co-composed by the extremely talented Ricky Edwards and is a 26-part half hour series to be screened locally on Network Ten, and internationally pretty much everywhere! I was on board full time from Episode 9 but I also co-composed Ep5. ‘Mako’ is a spin-off from the wildly successful ‘H2O: Just add water’ which went gang-busters internationally (google it!)

It’s a great show. I would have lapped this up as a kid and my son loves it. Sit down with your kids and check it out.
