1 form y separately published work icon Camelot Louise Fox , United States of America (USA) United Kingdom (UK) : Starz GK-TV , 2011 Z1845921 2011 series - publisher film/TV fantasy historical fiction

An American and British co-production, Camelot, created by British script-writer Chris Chibnall, sought to update the legend of King Arthur for a modern audience. Though reasonably successful with both audiences and critics, it was cancelled at the end of the first season.

Four of the ten completed episodes were co-written by Australian-born script-writer Louise Fox, who began writing for television with sketch comedies Full Frontal and Fast Forward, as well as scripting (with Philip Dalkin and Esben Storm) the second series of fantasy sit-com The Genie from Down Under.

1 7 form y separately published work icon Love My Way Claudia Karvan , John Edwards , Jacquelin Perske , FOX8 (publisher), Channel W (publisher), Showtime (publisher), Jacquelin Perske , Tony McNamara , Marissa Cooke , Brendan Cowell , Louise Fox , Fiona Seres , Blake Ayshford , Sarah Lambert , ( dir. Jessica Hobbs et. al. )agent 2004 Sydney Australia : Southern Star John Edwards FOX8 Channel W Showtime , 2004-2007 Z1238717 2004 series - publisher film/TV

The first Australian drama series to be made specifically for pay television, Love My Way follows the lives of a group of thirty-somethings who explore issues of friendship, step-parenting, divorce, and relationships. It deals with the randomness of life and the need many of us have to carve out a place in the world.

Central to the series is Frankie Paige, who attempts to negotiate the web of contemporary relationships, juggle the priorities of family obligations, and be both successful at love and fulfilled professionally, while hoping that 'happiness' might occur if all the other things fall into place. She lives with Tom, a once-successful chef who now cooks at the local rehabilitation hospital. Just down the road in a much nicer house lives her ex-husband (and Tom's brother), Charlie. An emotionally stunted architect/surfer now married to Julia, he and Frankie still have a relationship through their daughter, Lou. Throughout the series, these principal characters are pulled and strained by desires and contradictions that appear to be part and parcel of modern life.

1 form y separately published work icon The Shapies Brendan Luno , Anthony Watt , Bob La Castra , Robert Adams , Louise Fox , Stu Connolly , Mark Traynor , Roger Moulton , Helen MacWhirter , John Moss , ( dir. Mark Traynor et. al. )agent Australia : Light Knights Entertainment , 2002 Z1883542 2002 series - publisher film/TV children's fantasy

The adventures of a group of geometric shapes that live in Zac's toybox. The first series focuses on the attempts to reunite the divided group of Shapies in the new territory of Zac's bedroom; the second series focuses on more general adventures and the Shapies' side hobby as a rock group. The program was aimed at four- to eight-year-old viewers.

The production company website makes note of a program called Shapies Jnr, which seems to be a new production, based on the original concept but aimed at a younger audience. However, no information on this second program exists outside the production company website itself.
