Eyeworks New Zealand is one of the leading independent TV and Film production companies in New Zealand. The company successfully produces scripted and non-scripted entertainment, and drama series, for all major New Zealand channels including hit shows such as the top rating Secret Lives of Dancers, New Zealand’s Hottest Home Baker, Missing Pieces, and The GC, one of the most talked about series in New Zealand. Additional titles include The Life and Times of Temuera Morrison, Women In Blue and Family Secret. Eyeworks New Zealand also produces the award-winning local version of The Block.
New Zealand was the first country in the English-speaking world where Eyeworks established a foothold. New Zealand has proven itself to be a test market where formats have been successfully launched and have proven themselves capable of finding their way to other countries. In addition the high production quality and strong focus on innovation has lead Eyeworks New Zealand to establish a name for itself in the American market.
The company has built up a strong international format catalogue including such titles as The Chair, Shock Treatment (also a big hit in Belgium and nominated for a Rose d'Or), So You Wannabe A Popstar (nominated for a Rose d'Or, two series successfully aired in The Netherlands), One Land, Crash Course, Treasure Island (twelve series in three countries), The Ultimate Coyote Ugly Search (three series aired on CMT in the USA) and Miss Popularity (aired in twelve territories). Another format success is Missing Pieces which follows the personal journeys of people who are searching for someone for a very special reason.
The focus of Aucklands creative team will continue to the successful launch of programs in the New Zealand market, that have great potential in the rest of the world.
