TV Tonight hears the new clip show in development at Channel Seven is to be called The Ultimate Countdown.
The new show, currently at pilot stage, looks set to be the network’s own 20 to 1 though it is believed to have a point of difference that will attempt to make it unique. Hopefully that’s more substantial than that ridiculous “You voted Australia” on TEN’s failed Spearman Experiment.
This week Seven axed The White Room, which will not return to schedule despite a pilot and one more episode in the can. ICU has also been pulled after tonight, to return at a later date.
But the network shows no signs of slowing down on local production.
The Bounce and its NRL counterpart are in pre-production, while Seven is also planning a new drama based on the 1988 Walsh St police shootings.
