Former Endemol Shine unscripted execs Chris Culvenor and Paul Franklin have formed a new LA-based production company Eureka, and are set to open a Sydney office in March.
The duo, who previously worked at FremantleMedia Australia, have formidable credits including MasterChef, Junior MasterChef, The Biggest Loser, The Voice, The Apprentice and Project Runway.
They have also partnered with FremantleMedia (International) to develop and produce projects.
“At Eureka we’re very excited to bring together the talented creative community that we have collaborated with over the last decade to create series that captivate and surprise audiences,” said Franklin.
Rob Clark, Director of Global Entertainment, FremantleMedia, added, “Chris and Paul are two of the industry’s most highly regarded creatives. Their track records in production, development and sales complement our businesses in the US and Australia and we’re looking forward to creating and sharing ideas across our international network.”
