New roles at Electric Pictures.
After five seasons at the helm of the Aussie Gold Hunters series, growing it into one of Discovery’s most successful titles for Discovery Channel ANZ, Quest and Discovery+ UK, Robin Shingleton has been promoted to Executive Producer at Electric Pictures. He will EP the eighth season of Aussie Gold Hunters, related spin-off series, and a raft of productions in development at Electric Pictures.
Replacing Shingleton as Series Producer for Aussie Gold Hunters is Jason Giberti, ex Raw TV in the UK, and series producer of Discovery’s Gold Rush.
We look forward to working with Robin on new projects in development, and are excited to have Jason’s outstanding track record to help strengthen the global success of Aussie Gold Hunters. Jason’s experience on similar productions in the US and UK will play a pivotable role in evolving Aussie Gold Hunters editorially, as we celebrate the recent delivery of the 100th episode of the series.
Other developments see our fabulous Head of Production, Sharron Ashworth, depart after nine years with the company. She will be taking up a Senior Account Manager position for a full-service creative agency. Sharron has made a major contribution to the success of our productions over the years, and we wish her every success for the future.
