As television groups continue to criss-cross the globe acquiring production companies in key markets, Australia’s Seven Network is the latest international player to step into TV production in Britain. The group has formed 7Wonder, a UK joint venture with former Maverick Television executives Alexandra Fraser, Liza Abbott and Simon Ellse. Australia’s most watched broadcast platform says the move is intended to underline its commitment to increasing its international presence in TV production and new format creation. The company is also expected to mine some of Seven’s Oz output for potential remakes. Seven recently launched the 7Beyond joint venture with Mythbusters producer Beyond International which focuses on product for the U.S. market. The initial focus for 7Wonder will be the UK, across all genres.
