Three Drunk Monkeys in Logie contention for :30 Seconds and My Family Feast

Justin, Scott, Mark July09-WEB.jpgThree Drunk Monkeys, Sydney has two nominations at this year's Logies - My Family Feast is up for Most Popular Lifestyle Program and :30 Seconds is nominated for Most Popular Light Entertainment Program.
My Family Feast is a television series that looks at the lives and cooking traditions of Australian immigrants and their families, as seen through the eyes of host and award-winning chef Sean Connolly. Three Drunk Monkeys managing director Mark Green (pictured above right) and executive creative director Justin Drape (above left) are executive producers on the program, and Drape was one of three writers along with directors Giovanni Pacialeo and Benjamin Gilmour.

The popular cooking program celebrating food, family and the stories of life was a collaboration between Three Drunk Monkeys, Hopscotch Productions and television and film production company Benchmark Films. It aired on SBS in 2009.

Part cultural profile and part cooking show, in each episode Australians with diverse ethnic backgrounds invite Sean into their homes, introduce him to their families, share cultural traditions and teach both Sean and the audience how to cook a family feast with recipes and techniques that have been lovingly passed from generation to generation.

:30 Seconds is nominated for Most Popular Light Entertainment Program. Produced by Andrew Denton's production company, Zapruder's Other Films, :30 Seconds is a six-part half-hour satirical drama series which aired on FOXTEL in 2009. The series - written by Prodigy Films director Tim Bullock and Three Drunk Monkeys creative directors Justin Drape and Scott Nowell (pictured above - centre) - is set in a fictional multinational agency called BND Worldwide. It follows BND's brilliant but troubled creative director Martin Manning (Joel Tobeck, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King) and his staff as they go about their working lives under the banner: "BND. Truth Well Sold." :30 Seconds also stars Peter O'Brien (White Collar Blue, The Bill), Stephen Curry (The Castle, The King), Gyton Grantley (Underbelly) and Kath Bullock (Underbelly).

I'm bored about hearing about the Monkees. I had a mate who worked there, said it was a place full of creative directors but no leaders.
