Winners and Losers sneak peek during Rafters finale

Seven will cleverly give viewers a Sneak Peek of their new drama Winners and Losers during the finale of Packed to the Rafters.

The new drama is promised for 2011, and centres around the lives of four young women who are bound together by their shared experience of being “the losers” in high school. Ten years later, they meet at their high school reunion and their friendship is re-ignited.

The series features Virginia Gay, Melanie Vallejo, Melissa Bergland and Zoe Tuckwell-Smith, with Denise Scott, Blair McDonough and Francis Greenslade also starring.

Following the finale tonight, the clip will also be available for a limited time at

Winners and Losers, currently shooting in Melbourne, is one of two new dramas promised by Seven next year.


  1. Secret Squïrrel

    @Cam – you’re right but cookie-cutter characters are rife within drama. If this was the US the geeky glasses-wearer would also be more emo-ish.

    Just have a look at how many US shows go with this standard template for the 4 main characters: two white males, one “ethnic” male, one white female. One of the white actors will be a little different, usually nerdy/geeky, maybe a specialist or consultant (for cop-like shows). If there is a consultant or someone who’s been brought in from outside, there will be sexual tension between them and one of the leads which neither of them will admit to.

    The “ethnic” char used to be African-American (Hollywood saying sorry for slavery) but these days might be Central American or Asian. If so then the boss will be African American.

    If you need a group of five for your drama you must add another female who may be non-white (and must be if you have a group of six since the sixth will be another white male).

    There are surprisingly few shows that deviate from this.
