Andrew Denton returns to Seven with a new series next week.
The talk show is having a subtle name change (from Interview with Andrew Denton to Andrew Denton: Interview) but resumes with a Tuesday timeslot.
“I can’t tell you who’ll be in the blue guest chairs this year,” says Denton, “because first, that would spoil the surprise, and second, nobody tells me anything around here. Apparently, I’m just a pretty face.
“What I can say is that it’s a privilege to sit and talk with extraordinary people at length about what makes them tick. That moment – when everything goes quiet and all the bullshit of television seems to drop away – that’s the moment I’m always hoping for. When it happens, it’s unforgettable.
“I guess that, really, we’re slow food in a fast food environment. That makes us a slightly odd fit in the world of 2019. So, if it makes it easier, just think of us as Marinated at First Sight.”
9pm Tuesday April 23 on Seven.
