The girls from The Circle finally got some time to meet with media on Friday, with a lunch at Melbourne’s Riva restaurant on the Elwood foreshore.
It’s been a hectic time since putting the show on its feet for both cast and crew.
Joining them were a number of TEN celebs including Dr. Chris Brown and Charlie Pickering, plus media from print, radio and online. Many remarked on the group’s natural rapport.
TEN Melbourne General Manager Kerry Kingston congratulated the team for their upbeat start and noted that the show was ahead of where the network expected it to be so soon.
But competition hots up from tomorrow when a rejuvenated Kerri-Anne returns to screen following the end of the the Olympics.
Producer Pam Barnes noted that the daily turnaround of sets for both The Circle and The 7PM Project in the same studio was proving to be a challenge, but crews were now getting it down to a fine art.
Denise Drysdale, who had planned to drop back to 2 days a week co-hosting, will now be appearing 3 days a week instead. Initial talk of a fifth guest presenter appears to have been put on hold.
The show airs from 10am-12pm weekdays on TEN.
