Seven loves Little Big Shots host Shane Jacobson because he represents the typical Seven viewer, according to Head of Unscripted Sonya Wilkes.
“We’ve done two seasons with Shane Jacobson, whom our audience dearly loves, and we love him,” Wilkes revealed at last week’s Screen Forever conference.
“I think he really personifies the Seven viewer and who they are. Shane’s a good bloke, he’s accessible, he’s funny, he’s warm.
“That’s what we look for.”
This year Jacobson fronted both The Real Full Monty and Little Big Shots, produced by Warner Bros. Australia.
“Warner Bros. have a terrific catalogue at the moment. They have some great shows coming down the pipeline. They’ve really bulked up their creative in the US,” she continued.
“They always have shows that fit for us.”
Seven is yet to announce a third season of Little Big Shots.
