Monster Bug Wars - History - Netflix

The company was founded by producers Carmel Travers, Iain Finlay and Chris Ardill-Guinness, as well as consultant Phil Gerlach and accountant Mikael Borglund, briefly titled CIC Productions, initially with the intention of making only one program, Beyond 2000 after which the company took its name. The company took responsibility for distributing the series, finding success in selling the program overseas, including to Discovery Channel in America and an American adaptation for FOX. Early programs produced by Beyond include Just For the Record and Jack Thompson Down Under for Network Ten and Chances for the Nine Network. Beyond's relationship with Discovery Channel saw the company commissioned to produce a number of the channel's early programs, including a nine-season run of Invention and eventually the company's most successful program Mythbusters. In 2009, Beyond acquired distribution company Magna Pacific from receivership. In 2013, Beyond formed a joint venture with Seven West Media called 7Beyond to produce programs in North America. 7Beyond shows include My Lottery Dream Home and My Kitchen Rules.
