Appetite – behind the scenes

Appetite creator/co-director/co-writer Mohini Herse and the writing team of Grace Tan and Neilesh Verma talk about crafting their new SBS Digital Original series.

Fresh from receiving news that Appetite had been selected for Canneseries, the creative team revealed how they explored the gig economy through food delivery apps for the series.

“The writers’ rooms were really great because it involved a lot of research and a lot of consultation and it meant that we wrote from a place where we were trying to tell this story that was grounded in character,” explains Grace Tan.

In this behind-the-scenes video, the team discuss their inspiration for their characters, the origins of the concept and the challenges of writing to a short form format within the mystery genre.

Appetite is screening on SBS and SBS on Demand from 22 April 2023.
