There is increasing speculation about the future of The Renovators, with comment from TEN about the show’s possible future.
Now the site of the Rosebery warehouse is set for a renovation of its own with an application to develop apartments on a larger site to be known as Overland Gardens. The proposal consists of an eight storey residential building of 111 units.
TV Tonight understands the show’s warehouse, fitted out into Australia’s largest television studio, has a lease for its first season but discussions are underway as to whether a warehouse would comprise a second season.
Yesterday Chief Progamming Officer David Mott told the Herald Sun the show had been enormously disappointing.
“Discussions continue with Shine over certain aspects of the show – whether there’s life in it or not, how it could become another program or evolve into something else, whether there’s some brand heritage in it.
“They’re the conversations we’re having over it at the moment.”
Last month TEN said the show would be returning for 2012, but now there are doubts about its prospects.
“You pick yourself up, dust yourself off and move on. That’s what we’ll be doing,” said Mott.
“We’ve always remained positive and we’ve been very faithful to the loyal viewers who have been there with it and also to our advertisers.”
Six homes will go to auction between Tuesday 27th and Thursday 29th September by agents Century 21.
