Australian production company Cordell Jigsaw Zapruder (CJZ) has entrusted its growing programming catalog to London-based TCB Media Rights.

Previously, CJZ content distribution was handled in-house. Head of sales Kristin Burgham will be involved in overseeing the handover to TCB.

Programming in the catalog includes Go Back to Where You Came From, Bondi Rescue (pictured above), Gruen Planet, Gruen Nation, Gruen Sweat, and Jabbed from J.V. Genepool Productions, as well as titles from the recently acquired Greenstone TV, including Coastwatch Oz, Nabbed and Dog Patrol.

Bryan Hall will continue to look after Greenstone TV sales in Australia and New Zealand.

“Our recent Greenstone TV deal, joint venture (Genepool Productions) with Emmy-awarding winning producer, Sonya Pemberton and ongoing growth means we are now producing more of everything; factual, factual entertainment, comedy, kids, with a particular focus on pushing our drama, and formats,” said Matt Campbell, CEO of CJZ. “TCB founder and managing director, Paul Heaney, has a solid understanding of our business and is hugely respected by his extensive network of clients.”

“I have seen the level of quality content being produced out of Australia and New Zealand get better and better over the last 15 years and have hugely enjoyed finding new audiences for it all over the world,” added Heaney.
