Sunday Drama battle looming
The battle for Sunday nights in local drama is coming...
A Place to Call Home begins on Sunday for 13 weeks.
But ABC is also running promos that indicate local drama is returning to Sunday nights.
For some time ABC has been criticised for not programming its premium drama on Sundays, and its its defence, Friday night dramas Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries and The Doctor Blake Mysteries have done very good business.
Late last year a series of telemovies were screened on Sunday nights with mixed results.
Coming from late May on ABC1 are Cliffy, Paper Giants: Magazine Wars, Serangoon Road and the series The Time of our Lives.
With so much strong content from all our networks everybody is vying for the 8:30 slots but unfortunately there are only so many days in the week.
PVRs at the ready!
