Dan Ilic, who directed the effervescent Kate McLennan in those cheeky ‘Race for Gold’ sketches on Sunday, let slip that not everyone was happy to take part in the clips.
“Each of the networks has a representative,” he told TV Tonight. “Nine, TEN and the ABC who are represented for the Gold Logie. The only network that’s not represented is Seven because they didn’t like the creative.”
Adam Hills, Simone Jade-McKinnon and Ian Smith were amongst those who participated in sending themselves up. Smith was especially funny in his sketch. But where was Rebecca Gibney or Kate Ritchie?
Seems the network wasn’t seeing the funny side, leaving Ilic and his team to come up with a clip without any Seven stars. Guess that’s why we saw someone in a koala suit…..?
“So no Kate, no Rebecca but still a funny sketch. You’ll still laugh,” said Ilic.
