Following an acquisition of shares, production company Endemol Australia merged with Shine Australia on July 26, 2015.

They produce multiple Australian television programs across many networks, including popular franchise MasterChef Australia.


In January 2010, Shine Australia was founded as a part of Shine Group, catering to the Australian and New Zealand market. It is jointly led by CEOs Mark Fennessy and Carl Fennessy, who had previously worked at FremantleMedia Australia and Crackerjack Productions.[2] Shine Australia is not to be mistaken for long serving entertainment and talent company Shine International Entertainment who own the registered trademark and have been operating in Australia since 1932.

On 24 February 2016, producer Imogen Banks began to head a new division of Endemol Shine Australia called EndemolShine Banks, which will be used for drama productions.[3]
