Film Victoria and the ABC have announced a new joint initiative, The ABC Content Initiative, which aims to secure a pipeline of TV titles into the state over the next two years. 

The partnership will deliver an estimated $80 million in production expenditure to the state, Film Victoria said in a statement.

Victorian production companies such as December Media and Every Cloud Productions will deliver new and returning projects across drama, comedy, documentary and online.

The first titles announced through the initiative are the fifth series of The Doctor Blake Mysteries and new eight-part drama series Newton’s Law.

An estimated 19 projects are expected to be supported over the next two years, Film Vic said.

Minister for Creative Industries Martin Foley called the initiative “the next step in recognising the contribution creative industries make to our state, and the artistic, cultural, social and economic benefits of our strong screen sector.”

Film Victoria CEO Jenni Tosi said that "this dedicated pipeline of activity will ensure our talented creative and crews can continue to excel in their craft, while Victorian companies are provided certainty to encourage ongoing investment in their businesses.”
