ABC’s The Gruen Transfer is set to springboard to the world.
The show has been picked up by US format distribution company, Fox LOOK, a division of Fox Networks Group.
It will be renamed The Big Sell and is likely to be hawked at trade fair MIPCOM in Cannes next month.
The Zapruder’s Other Films show has been going from strength to strength, netting big audiences not only during the Election campaign, but afterwards.
FOX Look is under the direction of Aussie ex-pat David Lyle.
“As an Australian working in the international TV business, I have been very aware of how well The Gruen Transfer has done in beating the opposition, season after season,” he said. “A smart, witty, contemporary show that demonstrates such strength deserves to be an international hit. Just as Australia’s success with Masterchef turned heads elsewhere, so The Big Sell should be Australia’s next big export success.”
