The Sunday Telegraph reports two production companies have merged.
Zapruder’s Other Films and Cordell Jigsaw have merged.
The decision to bring the two companies together was finalised last week.
Zapruder’s Other Films is helmed by Andrew Denton and Anita Jacoby and produces such titles as Gruen Planet, Can of Worms, Randling, Hungry Beast, The Joy of Sets, Country Town Rescue while Cordell Jigsaw, helmed by Michael Cordell and Nick Murray, produces Bondi Rescue, Go Back to Where You Came From, Recruits and Mega Truckers.
A source said it was a strategic move to enhance their capabilities against the “big boys”, Southern Star, FremantleMedia Australia and Shine Australia.
It’s not clear yet what name the new enterprise will acquire or whether they will continue to operate as separate entities.
Update: To be known as Cordell Jigsaw Zapruder’s (CJZ).
