The Project is headed back to Sunday nights from this Sunday, with an on-air crew to include Peter Helliar, Dr. Chris Brown, Natarsha Belling and Rachel Corbett.
Screening from 6:30pm it hopes to lift flailing figures against The Block and Seven’s upcoming Little Big Shots. If it fires, it will help boost Australian Survivor which is suffering a low lead-in from Modern Family.
“Since it first went to air in 2009, The Project has become an integral part of TEN’s program schedule and the TEN brand.
“Influential, popular and always engaging, The Project is unique on Australian television and offers a different take on news and current affairs. We’re proud of what it has achieved and continues to achieve, and look forward to bringing more of The Project to viewers.
“The new Sunday show will offer an entertaining and engaging look at the news, current affairs and sport of the week that was and the week ahead,” she said.
It’s busy times for the Project‘s crew who have also been working on Saturdays every second week on The Wrong Girl, with the Como studio doubling for the show’s own “Breakfast Bar.” Updated: But the new show will be produced in Sydney.
In 2012 TEN tried a half hour Project on Sundays but it was pulled after 10 months.
Hopefully the only way is up.
