9HD guide: Invasion, Taken, E-Ring

Failed sci-fi Invasion finally gets its Aussie premiere at 9:30pm this Thursday on 9HD.

Created by former pop star and actor Shaun Cassidy, the show told the story of the aftermath of a hurricane in which water-based extraterrestrials infiltrate a small Florida town. Cassidy also created American Gothic and Roar starring Heath Ledger. Starring Prison Break’s William Fichtner, Invasion was originally promised by Nine for 2006.

9HD is also showing E-Ring, a Pentagon drama from Jerry Bruckheimer starring Benjamin Bratt and Dennis Hopper, plus the failed series The Mountain about a ski resort bequeathed to two brothers.

Nine also has another attempt at screening Steven Spielberg’s Taken mini-series featuring Dakota Fanning.

  1. so does that mean Nightline gets shown first on 9HD before the main channel? Like time-shifting in reverse, something 7 and 10 should make use of too.

    Although that is quite a normal custom on UK digital TV to screen shows first on the multi-channel before the main one obviously to drive the uptake of digital –
