Jungle Entertainment produces premium comedy and drama for a worldwide audience and we have a history of delivering both successful and innovative productions. 

We produced the first Australian television drama commissioned by FX (Mr. Inbetween), the first ever Australian SVOD commission (No Activity), the first scripted comedy commissioned by any Australian commercial network in 15 years and the highest rating new program in 2016 (Here Come The Habibs), the first Australian narrative comedy in VR and ABC2’s first ever comedy (Review With Myles Barlow).

Our programs are viewed around the world but our No Activity co-production with Gary Sanchez Productions is our first US production. It aired in November 2017, and is co-created, directed and co-written by Jungle partner Trent O’Donnell, and stars Will Ferrell, Bob Odenkirk, Amy Sedaris, JK Simmons and our very own Patrick Brammall.

Jungle Entertainment also has a history of international format sales. Review with Myles Barlow was remade by Comedy Central into the three seasons of Review with Forrest McNeill and A Moody Christmas has recently had a second script optioned by CBS Studios for Fox Networks. 

We get the results that we do because we do everything we possibly can to support the creator's vision.

We are the 2017 Mumbrella Production Company of the Year.
