Zemiro = Z Force

zemiroJulia Zemiro will feature as Zelda Forsyth (Zed), a multi-talented accident-prone special agent in a new pilot to be filmed by Renegade Films (RocKwiz, Ned Kelly Uncovered).

  1. Bobby O, last time I checked, Myf was on one of the ABC’s top rating shows. Which is made in Melbourne.

    Is that “successfull” (sic) enough for you?

    Her radio show being dropped by Triple M reflects on that station’s Channel-Nine-like inability to believe anyone except ratings-surveyed bogans are listening, not on her talent.

  2. I’m not particulary impressed by this woman, she reminds me very much like Myf Warhurst – and we’ve seen how succesfull she’s been in Melbourne – Not!!

    By they way i found her hosting of Eurovision “Crap” give me Graham Norton anytime!

  3. Hmm, the Zemiro pilot sounds, err, crap. Sorry, Renegade, still love you and all, but please, please, just remember “Funky Squad” and save some cash for something better.

    Emma Freeman directing “Hawke” spells WIN for me. Should be a good watch. Depending, of course, on who they cast as Hawke. Please, not a comedian. Or Max Gillies.

    Inside The Firestorm, meanwhile… hasn’t Masters already done a Four Corners piece on this with a similar title? Or am I mistaken? Either way, at least we have an airdate – February 6th 2010.
