The Daily Telegraph reports that the network is currently looking to lock in talent for the pilot episode of the series, to be shot in August.
Nine has begun touting the program to publicists and talent managers, claiming it’s early evening slot will have a live audience “double the size of Kerri-Anne and the Today Show combined (what live audience?).”
“The show will be the destination for celeb interviews and can offer a decent chat duration that won’t be surrounded by info-mercials,” the pitch promises.
There’s a lot of confusing info in these quotes. Why even mention infommercials if the show is pitched early evening?
Last year Nine attempted both The Nation and the Catch-Up, neither of which worked.
Could this part of Nine’s plans to utilise Eddie McGuire?
