Chat back before the cameras
Nine and Seven are believed to be both working on new panel-style formats.
More chat shows in the works?
The success of Spicks and Specks and Talkin’ ‘Bout Your Generation (both directed by Jon Olb) has other networks reaching for the pilot slate.
The Age notes Nine has filmed a pilot for a new panel-style talk show with The Chaser’s Julian Morrow as host and other comedians. Nine is apparently approaching it as a ”workshop” rather than a full-blown pilot. There were previous reports of a panel show for Eddie McGuire as far back as August.
Meanwhile TV Tonight understands Seven has also been chipping away at a new panel-style show.
As long as it’s better than Todd McKenney’s You May Be Right in 2006.
Hitting the right note on these formats is a lot harder than it looks…
