About Matchbox

Matchbox Pictures develops and produces scripted and non-scripted television programs and feature films for audiences throughout the world.

Formed in 2008 by Tony Ayres, Penny Chapman, Helen Bowden, Michael McMahon and Helen Panckhurst, Matchbox is one of the most dynamic production houses in Australia.

In May 2011, NBCUniversal took a majority stake in Matchbox Pictures and consequently acquired full ownership of the company in January 2014.  With a diverse output, the business produces television drama, children’s programming, factual and entertainment content, animation and feature films for the domestic and international marketplace. Matchbox has also developed games and apps to enhance its programs across all available platforms.

Matchbox works with some of the most exciting writers, directors and producers in Australia to deliver content that is internationally renowned.
