Best Bits clip show for Seven
Exclusive: A NZ clip show with a panel of comedians is to have an Australian version.
EXCLUSIVE: Seven has given the greenlight to a new panel show featuring TV clips, Best Bits.
The series has been airing in New Zealand on TV ONE for three seasons, currently hosted by comedian Jesse Mulligan.
NZ production company The Down Low Concept (Cover Band, 7 Days) will produce the Australian series, which will feature both Aussie & international TV clips seen across the previous week. A panel of comedians then discuss the clips, adding their own punchlines.
Networks have had mixed fortunes with clip-based shows. Seven has previously screened TV Burp with Ed Kavalee while Nine is reviving 20 to 1 and TEN / Foxtel series Gogglebox is set to screen its third season in April.
Production is expected to start in coming weeks.
