CJZ produces more original prime-time series than any other production company in Australia. The group was formed with the 2012 merger of Cordell Jigsaw and Zapruder’s Other Films, two leading Australian indies.
In December 2013, CJZ also acquired major NZ production company Greenstone TV creating an independent international production group. The combined catalogue of both companies now provides the group with a high quality slate and depth in the international market.
Signature programs include hit entertainment show The Gruen franchise (ABC) winner of the 2013 Rose d’Or for Entertainment, Bondi Rescue (Ten), and the ground-breaking format Go Back to Where You Came From (SBS) that won an International Emmy Award in 2013 and the 2012 Rose d’Or as the best television program in any genre and is now the most awarded factual program ever to come out of Australia.
