The Secret Daughter
Jessica Mauboy returns in the role of Billie Carter, the part-time country pub singer whose life was changed forever after a chance meeting with a wealthy city hotelier.
Season 2 picks up after Billie has turned her back on the Nortons and a record deal and is running back to Walperinga, wondering who she is and where she belongs.
So begins Billie’s journey of self-discovery… family and friendship, country and city, rich and poor, career and love – can Billie have it all? Only time will tell…

“Every truth has two sides; it is as well to look at both, before we commit to either” (Aesop)

Created and written by BAFTA- and Golden Globe-nominated producers and screenwriters Harry and Jack Williams (The Missing), LIAR tells the story of a night that changes the lives of Laura Nielson (Joanne Froggatt) and Andrew Earlham (Ioan Gruffudd) forever.

Laura is a smart and dedicated teacher, not long out of a relationship and unsure about getting back on the dating scene. Andrew is a renowned surgeon whose son is a pupil at Laura’s school. An initial attraction leads to a date, but neither fully realises the far-reaching consequences that their meeting will have on each other or their families. Truth and consequences go hand in hand in a tense and gripping thriller that examines both sides of a relationship and both sides of the truth. Are there really two sides to every story?

Liar explores the devastating cost of deceit on both the couple and their friends and family, as secrets and lies are laid bare.

Liar stars Joanne Froggatt, Ioan Gruffudd, Warren Brown, Zoe Tapper, Shelley Conn and Danny Webb.

The compelling, six-part thriller from Two Brothers Pictures is their first commission for ITV and is being produced in conjunction with SundanceTV. The series is executive produced by Harry and Jack Williams. Lead director is BAFTA winner James Strong, who also serves as executive producer.

The Grand Tour
The Grand Tour is Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May’s new series on Amazon Prime Video.

Jeremy, Richard and James have committed to three series of The Grand Tour on Amazon as part of a landmark global TV deal and have been travelling the world with the Grand Tour team, filming the series in locations across the globe.

Each episode features studio recordings in front of a live audience, as the team pitch their giant travelling tent in a different location each week as part of their Grand Tour of the world.

Episode 1 – The Holy Trinity (California)
The Grand Tour kicks off in California, USA, when Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May take their famous studio tent to Dry Rabbit Lake. Hundreds of fans from across the U.S. travelled to the desert, near Lucerne Valley, outside of Los Angeles, California to be part of the first ever episode of Jeremy, Richard and James’ new show for Amazon Prime.  

Michael Hutchence: The Last Rockstar

“This is not Michael Hutchence defined by how he died but by how he lived: a brilliant musician, a brilliant man, a loving father, a true rockstar,” said Executive Producer Mark Llewellyn.

“This is not a biopic treading over old territory – this will make headlines around the world. New music, new revelations, and the most beautiful home video and insights from his closest friends and family; most of whom have never spoken publicly before.

“Michael left more questions than answers when he left us, and this documentary will provide those answers and much, much more.”

Michael Hutchence – The Last Rockstar is the true story of Michael, the man – the loving father of Tiger Lily and one of the greatest performers the world has ever seen.

Following an extensive, two-year Seven News investigation spanning four continents and five countries, hidden bank vaults housing Michael’s prized treasures are unlocked; his diary is opened; his final lyrics, recorded but never released, can finally be played; and for the for the first time intensely private photographs and family videos, Michael’s haunting last message, hand-written in the hotel room where he died, and his secrets are finally revealed.

And Michael’s extraordinary new songs, penned and recorded by the INXS star before his death but never heard… until now.

This is the final chapter to an extraordinary life, much of it told through incredible, never-before-seen private home videos recorded by Michael himself.

A tale of love and fame, creativity and crushing heartache, his family, girlfriends, lovers and closest friends, all reveal deeply personal memories about the Michael they love.


  1. Can they please hurry up and put greys and htgawm on Flix? They are showing the blacklist so I don’t see what the problem is. They have the rights, why the delay ??

  2. David in regards to Liar is this part of a programming deal seven has as I noticed another one British drama little boy blue the other week in prime time.

  3. Liar and the Michael Hutchence special are the only two things that look remotely interesting.

    Be nice if they did air Grey’s and HTGAWM even within a week of the US… hint hint.

  4. I think Family Food Flop (sorry Fight) will… Flop… On Nine.

    So that will give Seven and Ten some breathing space.

    The Secret Daughter will be massive again, the jury is out on The Grand Tour and Liar.

    All eyes will be on The Wall.

    Fridays and Saturdays will continue to drive Seven each week, with Better Homes and countless movies across multi channels, as well as alternates on 7Two.

    Indiana Jones > Star Wars marathons looking big (was huge on Saturday, albeit after the Grand Final).

    • If anything that will flop, it’ll be Instant Hotels and what jury? The Grand Tour is the original Top Gear boys, it will rate. I don’t know what you’re talking about.

  5. Mr game show fan

    Nice scoop on The Wall. I did say after you said “It will screen later this year” that it is a small gap between recording and broadcast. They must have taken Hot Seat’s recent approach and decided to broadcast episodes weeks not months after recording and therefore also have more recent questions in the mix of possible questions that could be asked.
