Mipcom: Itv Studios Australia enters its biggest production year ITV Studios Australia is set to enter its biggest production year to date with four new and returning shows commissioned by Nine Network, in addition to several more previously announced.

Following the stand out success of Love Island Australia on 9Go – which smashed viewing records and became Nine’s most streamed show of 2018 outside sporting events – a second season of the fun and flirty dating show is being lined up for 2019 to air on Channel 9. Other returning entertainment favourites to be produced by ITV Studios Australia include Talpa Global’s phenomenal talent show The Voice (season eight) and the inter-generational game show Talkin’ ‘Bout Your Generation (season two).
ITV Studios Australia will also make its first ever foray into scripted content with the revival of the enormously popular, multi award-winning 90s drama, SeaChange. As a co-production with Every Cloud Productions (Miss Fisher Murders, Mystery Road) SeaChange will be steered by the show’s original creator Deb Cox, alongside CEO and Co-Founder Fiona Eagger, who will serve as Executive Producers alongside David Mott, CEO of ITV Studios Australia and Sigrid Thornton. It will commence production in 2019.

SeaChange will star its original lead, Sigrid Thornton, as Laura Gibson, a city lawyer who moves to a sleepy seaside town called Pearl Bay with her children, after her professional and personal life breaks down. It was the winner of three coveted Logie Awards for Outstanding Drama Series (1999 – 2001), becoming one of Australia’s most iconic franchises. The series will see a number of previous characters returning to screen, alongside some new faces for a new generation of fans.

David Mott, CEO ITV Studios Australia said, “I couldn’t be more delighted that our deepening relationship with Nine Network has led to several of Australia’s favourite shows returning to air in 2019 including the record-breaking SeaChange, with our partners at Every Cloud Productions, as we diversify our Australian operation into scripted.”

The commissions follow the recent announcement of the first seasons of ITV Studios Global Entertainment’s Sunday Night Takeaway and I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! for Network Ten, as well as Mad as Hell (season 10, ABC) and The Chase (season seven, Seven Network).
