What We Do

Juiced TV is an Australian first entertainment initiative that benefits the health and wellbeing of sick kids and their families in hospital, one episode at a time. 

The program began in January 2015 at the Queensland Children’s Hospital. Since then it has directly touched the lives of more than 2,700 patients and their families by improving the hospital journey and creating a unique way for them to engage and communicate with one another.

Juiced TV is broadcast throughout the Queensland Children’s Hospital in each ward via the Patient Entertainment System. Each episode is also made available online via our website and YouTube channel to allow our kids and families to share their positive memories with others. 

We have received a great amount of support from local and international bodies in the past two years. The entertainment, experiences and guests we welcomed to the hospital for our kids has included Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston straight off the set of Thor, Justin Timberlake, Johnny Depp appearing on the show as Captain Jack Sparrow, and most recently Their Royal Highnesses, The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall.

The Juiced Crew

Pip Russell Founder / Managing Director

For 9 years, Pip fronted two of Network Ten’s national children’s shows Toasted TV and Totally Wild. During this time she had many adventures and gained extensive production skills working on national and international shoots, while using her public profile to champion many charitable organisations.

Pip’s deep passion for supporting meaningful causes has seen her volunteer in remote villages in Africa and with local organisations, raise over $20,000 for cancer research at the Queensland Institute of Medical Research, and present a documentary on Australian Aid in Cambodia.

In 2014, she traded in commercial television to launch Juiced TV and change the way that sick kids experience hospital.

Since launching the program, Pip has been an ambassador and guest speaker for many events including Advance Queensland Initiatives, Australian Women's Leadership Summit, Small Business and Women in Business functions.

Having recently been awarded the 2018 Queensland Local Hero, Pip looks forward to celebrating this recognition by achieving the goal of expanding Juiced TV to 10 regional children's wards throughout Queensland this year, as well as to interstate hospitals.

Steph always knew she needed a job that would harness her creativity and allow her to connect with people with purpose, so leaving her hometown of Adelaide to join the Juiced Crew was an easy decision.
 Steph has spent the last few years earning her Bachelor of Journalism degree, travelling the world, and managing and reporting for online publication, ‘Who Won’, showcasing Adelaide’s senior high school sports competitions.

Her passion for TV production, engaging with people and sharing their stories was heightened after assisting on the Channel Seven production ‘SA Life’, and Steph has now brought her bubbly energy to the hospital to improve the lives of sick kids.

She loves nothing more than bringing together the special guests, entertainment and external hospital experiences that make Juiced TV what it is!
