Associate Producer: 2010-2011
Series Producer: 2012-present
Lucy Addario (née Surgeon) grew up in Sydney, and attended an all-girls Anglican school in the Sydney suburb of Wahroonga. After finishing her studies, Lucy went onto Macquarie University and completed a Communications degree.
In 2002, Lucy became the assistant to Di Drew, the producer of All Saints at the time. She eventually worked her way up the various roles in the production department, working as both a post-production supervisor, in 2003, for two years and then a production liaison.
When Di Drew left the series, Lucy became the Associate Producer of All Saints and therefore the 2nd in Charge, under Series Producer, Jo Porter. Lucy remained in that role until the conclusion of the series in 2009.
After the conclusion of All Saints, Lucy moved into the Home and Away production department, and became the Associate Producer of the series. After Cameron Welsh quit, Lucy was promoted and became the Series Producer.
Lucy’s first episode as Series Producer aired on 16th April 2012 (Ep#5496). Alongside the Series Script Executive at the time, Louise Bowes, the pair were responsible for the Braxton era, which resulted in a mammoth surge in the ratings, sending Home and Away to the top of the ratings, and winning it the Logie for “Most Popular Drama”, an award that it hadn’t won since 2008.
Currently, Lucy continues on as Series Producer of Home and Away, comfortably heading into her sixth year in the chair.
