Nine CEO David Gyngell and Advertising Sales Director Peter Wiltshire today begin the big sell of the Nine Network to media buyers around the country.
In Brisbane yesterday they unveiled the first of three presentations across three cities. Sydney follows today and Melbourne tomorrow.
Amongst those detailed are the new factual series on the Australian Federal Police, being produced by Denton’s company Zapruder’s Other Films.
“It’s the most incredible access I’ve ever seen to a program. We are there for things that you just can’t imagine we’re there,” said Gyngell.
What about the Godwin Grech case? The AFP once tried this format many years ago with Crawford Productions. You can read a whole lot more on the show from this May 2008 story.
Nine’s Sundays for 2010, start with Domestic Blitz followed by Sixty Minutes and the third instalment of the Underbelly. Gyton Grantley fronts scam-show The Real Hustle. Other true crime shows include Australian Families of Crime, hidden camera show You’re Nicked and the police dog show Send In the Dogs.
Wicked Love: The Maria Korp Story starring Vince Colossimo and Rebecca Gibney, has had a subtle title change.
Gordon Ramsay’s Gordon’s Great Escapes will also screen and Hey Hey It’s Saturday will be back, but so far without the finer detail. Gyngell also predicted Top Gear‘s numbers would soar from 1 million at SBS to 1.5 million at Nine.
More titles are to be rolled in Sydney today and Melbourne tomorrow.
