Jonathan Mark Shiff is an Australian TV Producer. Shiff was educated as a lawyer and got a job with the Australian company Crawford Productions where he was trained to be a producer in the 1970s. (According to imdb he graduated from the Swinburne Film & Television School in Australia). By the end of the 1980s he founded his own company and has since then produced two educational and a dozen live action series for Australian TV, the most successful being "Ocean Girl" (1994-1997) and "H2O: Just Add Water" (2006-2010).Because of H2O's success (and in order to make financial ends meet with regulations in an Australian tax-rebate scheme which limit the rebate to the production of 65 episodes) by the end of 2008 he announced that he was planning to produce a full length movie as a close to the series. This never happened. Instead a spin-off series "Mako Mermaids" will be produced in 2012.
