Could Andrew Denton be coming out of ‘retirement’ with a project for Stan?
That’s the question Fairfax Media is speculating today after the former ABC presenter and producer was seen lunching with Nine CEO, David Gygnell:
Gyngell was overheard enthusing to Denton that he was “excited” by the prospect of working with the television pioneer, who appears to be coming out of “retirement” despite quitting his production company Zapruder back in 2013.
But TV Tonight understands Denton is a consultant for the Nine / Fairfax streaming service, and has been for several months.
Whether that involves adopting an ‘on-air’ role is less clear.
Current arrangements sound like a win / win for both parties.
