Seven is also promising local commissions to be revealed at a later date.
Discovery’s general manager, ANZ & Pacific Islands, Rebecca Kent said: “At Discovery our passion lies in sharing the best real-life stories with our audiences. Producing globally renowned content that is engaging and inspiring is what we love to do and working with local partners to entertain as many Australians as possible is the icing on the cake!
