GO! will return a new season of Fringe and Curb Your Enthusiasm “soon” and launch new shows The Hard Times of R.J. Berger and reality series I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.
The Hard Times of R.J. Berger is an MTV series about RJ Berger (Paul Iacono), the unpopular kid at school whose appendage makes him the centre of attention. Shades of a teenage Hung, with a hint of The Wonder Years.
But GO! has also on-sold some shows to Foxtel that it had promised it would air including the US version of Shameless starring William H. Macy, and the third season of The Vampire Diaries.
Hart of Dixie, which features Rachel Bilson as a big time NYC doctor who is forced to move to country Alabama, will also premiere on Foxtel instead of GO!
This isn’t the first time shows from the Nine Network have been on-sold to Foxtel, with Gossip Girl and Smallville as previous examples.
In September Foxtel’s Brian Walsh told TV Tonight that it had made deals with the three commercial Free to Air networks for new content.
