NCIS: LA Showrunner and HUMANITAS Trustee Shane Brennan to head Australian Writer's Guild

Former NCIS: Los Angeles creator and showrunner Shane Brennan has been named president of the Australian Writers' Guild.

The appointment is a relatively prestigious one for the guild; Australia has long history of sending creative talent to Hollywood but rarely gets an opportunity to secure that talent back on home soil. Brennan has been a guild member for almost 40 years, and has spent the last 14 years in Hollywood working on a number of projects but notably the NCIS franchise, and the spin-off NCIS: Los Angeles, for the CBS network. T

he guild's CEO Jacqueline Elaine noted Brennan's appointment reflected the "calibre and commitment" of the guild's board.
