Cognisant of the rapid changes in the broadcast environment these days, Northern Pictures head of factual Karina Holden believes one should never rest on one’s laurels. Rather than just use the phrase as an empty sentiment to describe an upcoming production slate, she practises what she preaches as evident by her own 2013 jump from a comfortable job as a commissioning editor at the ABC.
Karina Holden is the head of factual entertainment at Northern Pictures.
Her list of credits include Go Back To Where You Came From for SBS, and Changing Minds for the ABC.
Her new show is Luke Warm Sex, a six-part series which follows comedian Luke McGregor as he tries to get better at sex with help from sexperts, therapists, scientists, tantric practitioners and sexual empowerment coaches.
There's something to be said about getting your education on all things sex from a complete stranger. No emotional attachment, less embarrassment, the opportunity to ask questions and even if judged know you may never see them again.
Then there's the chance to challenge your anxieties about intimacy, touch and all things sex on national TV. If that's not confronting then I'll walk naked through the Bourke Street Mall.
Welcome to LUKE WARM SEX.
