Eureka Productions is an Australian-American television production company majority-owned by Fremantle. Launched in 2016 by former Endemol Shine Australia executives Chris Culvenor and Paul Franklin with backing from Fremantle, the company primarily develops and produces non-scripted and reality programming in Australia and the United States. Since 2022, Eureka has been responsible for all of Fremantle's non-scripted output in Australia.


The company was formed by Chris Culvenor and Paul Franklin, both executives with Endemol Shine Australia, setting up Los Angeles and Sydney offices in 2016.[2] The company also formed a partnership with Fremantle to co-produce international projects, with the studio taking an investment in Eureka.[3] In 2018, Eureka signed a deal with Lionsgate to be the exclusive distributor and producer of Lionsgate entertainment and unscripted series in Australia.[4]

In 2021, Fremantle acquired a majority stake in Eureka. In 2022, Fremantle restructured its Australian operations to make Eureka responsible for all of its non-scripted output, assuming production duties for existing series such as Australian Idol from Fremantle Australia (which will primarily focus on scripted dramas and factual programming under new CEO Greg Woods).[5][6]
