As tipped by TV Tonight in May, Nine is developing another new drama series with Screentime, producers of Underbelly, Crownies and Cloudstreet.
The 13 part drama series centres around debt collectors to be filmed in Sydney and Wollongong. It will be interesting to see how they can make these sympathetic characters.
Nine’s drama slate for 2012 is already taking shape with Kerry Packer’s World Series Cricket and Sundowner.
It has also finished shooting on Beaconsfield.
Ironically the subject of the new series comes at a time when rumblings about the company’s own $3.6 billion debt continue to grow louder. Nine has until February 2013 to refinance $2.6bn.
