Amongst the new shows announced for Foxtel in 2009 is a local version of hair-styling reality series Shear Genius. The US version featured Aussie born Tabatha Coffey, whose blunt style won her enough interest for her own series Tabatha’s Salon Takeover. Will Foxtel bring her here for this?
It’s lucky for Foxtel that Nine decided against producing Million Dollar Salon, as it had planned earlier this year.
Andrew Denton’s produced 8 part satirical drama set in the advertising industry is titled 30 Seconds.
There is also the fifth series of FOX8’s Australia’s Next Top Model, to be hosted by Sarah Murdoch, a new action game show, The Phone, hosted by Justin Melvey, Peter Moon’s comedy Whatever Happened To That Guy, and an Australian version of the reality program designed to unearth a new boxer, The Contender Australia.
As previously reported FOX8 will also premiere the latest series from Buffy’s Joss Whedon, Dollhouse, the new comedy starring Australia’s Portia de Rossi, Better Off Ted, and further series of reality programs Project Runway Australia and Football Superstar.
