Docklands is now home to almost all of Nine’s bigger productions since it vacated its historic Bendigo Street studios, with small productions such as Nine News and A Current Affair at its new Bourke Street headquarters.
Global Television has provided technical expertise and all of the broadcast technical systems needed to set up the facility for Nine.
Nine Network Managing Director Jeff Browne said: “We are delighted to continue our partnership with Global Television at Nine’s new state-of-the-art Docklands Studios.
“Already we have drawn on their capabilities and experience for Hot Seat and The Footy Show and look forward to collaborating on numerous successful ‘Made in Melbourne’ programs.”
Global Television CEO Keith Andrews said: “Melbourne has been an important part of the Nine network’s history and Global is delighted to be part of their future at Docklands.
“Global Television is all about bringing compelling content to life, and Nine’s Docklands Studios are an exceptional environment for our studio and broadcast technical expertise to shine, delivering a winning production solution for Nine.”
Nine previously announced a permanent rental of a space at Dockland Studios through to 2015. Productions have also included Ben Elton Live from Planet Earth, Million Dollar Drop and Between the Lines.
