“When there’s so much television around, there is a danger that you start to passively, even unconsciously, copy tropes. And you begin to think that that’s what’s right,” she says.

“But actually, it’s not. It’s just what’s familiar, and that doesn’t necessarily make it true or good”.

Having created her first television show at only 26, and now executive producing and writing on Succession, one of the most talked about series of the past few years, Prebble is an expert at creating compelling drama.
