Australia’s Seven Network has invested in U.K.-based scripted specialists Slim Film + Television. Seven confirmed a major shareholding in Slim, the company behind drama series Legacy (BBC), comedy The Art of Foley, among others. The new venture reflects Seven’s shift towards increasing production of new programs and formats, particularly for the British and international markets. As part of Seven’s investment deal, BBC Worldwide, which held a 25% stake in Slim, is exiting the company.
