Best Bits clip show for Seven

2016-02-27_1904

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.

  1. Sounds fun. Hopefully it going to like more satirical version Media Watch on ABC with slip-ups, stuff-ups and production issues from the past week. Episode 1 title should be “Nine News Blackout. When somebody forgot to pay the electricity bill… twice]

  2. … And Bringing Sexy Back, Slideshow, Celebrity Splash, Pictures of You, The Big Adventure, The Mole… Yes Seven can get show anything and people will watch

    • It is, believe you me. The network in NZ created this show off the back of a another highly successful news-based panel show that broadcasts on a rival network in order to entice a younger demographic. The first series had an entirely different format, and after that failed, they revamped the show entirely which failed again.

  3. It really is a golden age to be a comedian. The number of TV and radio shows that require comedians is growing exponentially. The age of the Court Jester is alive and well.
