Australian pubcaster SBS has added Josh Martin (pictured) to its unscripted team.

As commissioning editor, entertainment and food, Martin will commission and oversee the production of multi-platform content, effective Oct. 9th. He reports to John Godfrey, head of unscripted at SBS.

Prior to joining SBS, Martin served as executive producer at Australian prodco Essential Media. There, he contributed to the prodco’s factual slate in addition to overseeing its food and lifestyle content.

Martin’s 20-year career has seen him directing and producing a number of food and travel series on SBS, including Gourmet Farmer, Mexican Fiesta with Peter Kuruvita, Island Feast with Peter Kuruvita, Shane Delia’s Spice Journey and Gourmet Farmer Afloat.

“I am delighted to welcome Josh to SBS,” said Marshall Heald, SBS director of TV and online content, in a statement. “Josh’s passion and strong track record of producing engaging and entertaining content will be a great addition to SBS’s non-scripted team as we continue to tell innovative and ground-breaking stories that reflect our diverse world.”
