Discovery Networks International announces new commissions

Discovery Network International’s Phil Craig orders series from Essential and WTFN

•  Two new Australian productions for 2016 from Essential and WTFN

Discovery Networks International has unveiled several high profile commissions including two new Australian productions slated to air in 2016. The announcement was made by Discovery Networks International executive vice president and chief creative officer, Phil Craig at the 2015 Edinburgh International Television Festival:

“After spending a lot of time working in Australia, and getting to know the quality of the Australian production community, it’s a special pleasure for me to announce that two of Discovery’s most important new global commissions are coming from Oz”, said Craig.

“Popular Science is a foundation of Discovery Channel and I’m certain that Essential’s Question Everything is going to both amaze and entertain millions of our viewers around the world. Sydney Harbour Uncovered is a fascinating, gorgeously-photographed portrait of the world’s most iconic harbour cities, focusing on the amazing and diverse people who make it work, and the epic, ever-challenging jobs that they do. As I was briefly a Sydneysider myself, it’s also, if I’m honest, my own love letter to this most beautiful of cities.”

Question Everything is a 6x60min pop-science series produced for Discovery Networks International by production company Essential Media and Entertainment.

Sydney Harbour Uncovered is a 6x60min observational documentary series produced for Discovery Networks International by production company WTFN.
