New Australian TV studio Dreamchaser aims to showcase Australian content to the world

The new studio Dreamchaser will bring the next generation of Australian stories to the world.

Mumbai: In a bid to create local Australian content that can travel globally, former Nine Entertainment CEO Hugh Marks and Endemol Shine Australia co-founder Carl Fennessy have announced the launch of Dreamchaser.

 It is being positioned as being Australia’s first full-service production and distribution studio based in Sydney, Australia. Marks and Fennessy will serve as joint CEOs.

The new studio will provide a home for Dreamchaser to partner with established and emerging creators to develop programming slates, cultivate distinctive creative identities and bring the next generation of Australian stories to the world.

Backed by global content studio Endeavor Content, Dreamchaser will establish a collection of creative partnerships across the scripted, factual and entertainment genres under one portfolio, with a focus on driving global projects out of the Australian market.

Marks and Fennessy said, “We’re seeing an explosion of global demand for premium content from new and traditional television platforms that shows no sign of slowing. At the same time Australian creatives are at the forefront of many of the biggest shows in the world. There has never been a greater opportunity for global content to be developed and sold from this market. With Endeavor Content’s strategic partnership, Dreamchaser will be a unique home for our creative partners to realise all of their ambitions and for content commissioners to have confidence that Dreamchaser will be the Australian studio where those ambitions can be delivered,"

Endeavor Content’s Co-CEOs Chris Rice and Graham Taylor said, “We are excited for Hugh and Carl to bring their combined industry expertise to launch Dreamchaser, harnessing Australia’s flourishing creative and production communities."

“With Dreamchaser, Australia solidifies its standing as a major global destination for best-in-class content, bringing next-level storytelling from new and established voices from the continent to export there and to the world beyond.”

Joining Marks and Fennessy are a management team including COO Sara Horn, CFO Megan Rees-Williams and head development Monique Keller.

Marks and Fennessy added, “We’re grateful to the amazing and highly experienced team that have agreed to go on this journey with us. “Their expertise and proven track record will help achieve Dreamchaser’s ambition of taking Australian creatives and their stories to the world.”

In the coming months, Dreamchaser will announce a number of new projects, as well as first-look and multi-title picture deals with Australian creatives.
