Welcome to Kiss & Go, a burgeoning production house based in Melbourne, Australia, run by husband-and-wife team, Fiona Harris and Mike McLeish. Fiona & Mike decided that being married and having two kids just wasn’t anywhere near as fulfilling or chaotic enough, so they made the decision to also become creative collaborators.
At Kiss & Go, our mission is simple: Make Good Stuff With Good People.
We are creators, writers, producers, performers and collaborators who make original, contemporary content for stages and screens of all sizes.
In 2019, our web series, The Drop Off, was acquired by Channel 9 to be screened as a telemovie (broadcast date TBC). We’ve also adapted The Drop Off into an adult fiction novel, which is due for publication in 2020 with the champions at Echo Publishing .
Kiss & Go’s second project, The Cliffs, a live action children’s series, was approved for ACTF development funding in May 2019, and is our first kids’ series to go into development.
We’re very excited.
