Nine of the Hungry Beast team will remain with Zapruder’s Other Films after the season final airs this Wednesday.
Dan Ilic, Monique Schafter, Nick Hayden, Elmo Keep, Patrick Clair, Nick McDougall, Kirk Docker, Marc Fennell and Aaron Smith will develop an online project with the independent company.
“As well as being fresh TV content, we always looked on Hungry Beast as a way to find and develop new television talent,” Zapruder’s Head of Development and Production, Anita Jacoby said.
“And we did find people with great skills, who were bursting with ideas. We have put in a lot of training with them across the two series and we didn’t want to see that go out the door.
“So we looked at ways of keeping that talent and playing to both individual strengths and the way the market is heading.
“There is no doubt that online content is making a big noise and we want to explore that by taking creative risks and moving onto new ground.”
The ABC is yet to indicate if a third series of Hungry Beast will be picked up, or the future of the remaining HB team.
