Set to screen twice a week from Feb 12 it will air at 10:30pm.
The show is designed to be a mix of news and views on the day’s most talked about topics, drawing on internet and interactive viewer material.
The show is the brainchild of Sunrise whiz-kid Adam Boland. Seven is also developing another HD variety fronted by Andrew O’Keefe.
The Seven Network is proud to reveal details of 7HD’s highly anticipated signature program.
The NightCap is a twice weekly chat show – broadcast LIVE from Seven’s High Definition Studio at Sydney’s Martin Place. It will screen Tuesday and Thursday nights from 10:30pm.
Host Matthew White will be joined by Jessica Rowe and Paul Murray for every edition. Big Brother Runner-up Zach Douglas will join the panel each Tuesday night, while Sunrise’s Monique Wright will take the chair on Thursdays.
Every show will feature a special fifth guest host – ranging from celebrities to politicians to sports stars. The NightCap also intends to have a global feel – with Nuala Hafner reporting LIVE from London.
The final member of The NightCap team is Beau. The American Blues singer will croon and serenade the panellists and guests throughout the show.
The NightCap is the brainchild of Adam Boland, the Executive Producer of Sunrise and The Morning Show. He says it’s designed with HD in mind.
“It makes sense we embrace new technology. I want The NightCap to be the most interactive show on television – with webcams, live talkback calls and video streaming. Here comes the future.”
The program will tackle the day’s big stories – before inviting direct input from viewers and guests alike.
“We won’t be doing news in the conventional way,” Boland says. “We intend to take a stand on things. We intend to be jam-packed full of attitude – and we intend to make a noise. But don’t worry, we also intend to have plenty of fun.”
The NightCap is the first of a number of Seven original productions to be shown exclusively on 7HD. The Nightcap starts on Tuesday 12 February.
