SeaChange Revived by Nine Network


ITV Studios Australia has four new and returning shows—including its first scripted series, a revival of the ’90s drama SeaChange—commissioned by Nine Network.

ITV Studios Australia will make its first foray into scripted content with the revival of the drama SeaChange. As a co-production with Every Cloud Productions (Miss Fisher Murders, Mystery Road), SeaChange will be led by the show’s original creator, Deb Cox, alongside CEO and Co-Founder Fiona Eagger. It will star its original lead, Sigrid Thornton.

Love Island Australia broke viewing records and became Nine’s most streamed show of 2018 outside sporting events. Now, a second season of the dating show is being lined up for 2019. Talpa Global’s The Voice heads into season eight and the inter-generational game show Talkin’ ‘Bout Your Generation will be in season two.

David Mott, CEO of ITV Studios Australia, said, “I couldn’t be more delighted that our deepening relationship with Nine Network has led to several of Australia’s favorite 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.”
