Seven moves into UK production

Australia’s Seven Network is moving into UK production by setting up a local indie with a trio of former Maverick Television execs.

7Wonder will be based in London and helmed by Alexandra Fraser, Liza Abbott and Simon Ellse, who previously worked at Embarrassing Bodies prodco Maverick.

Our success is built on our ability to create and own compelling content, and to deliver that content to the biggest audiences across our media platforms,” said Tim Worner, CEO of Seven parent Seven West Media. “7Wonder underlines a key part of our strategy for today and in the future: the expansion of our presence in the production of content.”

Seven recently branched out into the US through a similar production pact with UK-Australian producer Beyond.
