Seven is banking big on reality again in 2024, including partnering with the UK's Channel 4 to bring the British reality format 'Made In' to Sydney's Eastern Suburbs.
An expansion into crime drama via WTFN and four new series from Auckland production house Stripe Studios headline Fred Media's slate for next month's MIPCOM, with the distributor adding nearly 140 hours of content to its catalogue.
Despite focusing on Australian news events, distributor Fred Media has secured a series of international sales for parent company WTFN's 'Code 1: Minute by Minute', including to Warner Bros. Discovery in the UK.
Distributor Fred Media has fielded further European interest for factual entertainment series Space Invaders, with More4 in the UK and 6ter (a Groupe M6 FTA channel) in France acquiring both seasons of the Nine Network program.
New spin-offs of 'The Voice' and 'House Rules' join a host of returning franchises on the Seven Network's 2022 slate, which features a renewed focus on light entertainment. Of the titles announced as part of the upfronts, Screentime's 'Claremont' was the sole local drama.
