Cordell Jigsaw Zapruder (CJZ) announced the formal departure of Andrew Denton after the merger of Cordell Jigsaw and Zapruder’s Other Films eighteen months ago. Denton leaves CJZ with over a dozen shows on the production slate and an exciting range of content across most networks. CJZ retains a first look deal with Denton in the event he decides to move back into television.
Since its establishment, Zapruder’s produced a slate of original Australian-developed and produced shows including Enough Rope, Elders, and three series of Hungry Beast, which Denton mentored. The company also announced the production of Wanted, a new prime-time format with the Ten Network. Shitsville Express will soon begin screening on ABC2 and Gruen Nation starts soon on ABC1.
