Seven’s upcoming Bevan Lee drama Between Two Worlds has been held back for a 2020 premiere.
But network sources are extremely pleased with the finished product and are considering it to kick off their year.
The high concept thriller led by UK actor, Hermione Norris (pictured, Cold Feet, Spooks, Luther), also features Philip Quast, Sara Wiseman, Aaron Jeffery and newcomers Tom Dalzell, Melanie Jarnson and Megan Hajjar.
Norris plays Cate Walford, whose relationship with vicious, business tycoon husband, Phillip, is on the ropes and sees a tempestuous home life trapped in a tangled web of lies and manipulation. Through a shocking twist of fate, this dark and murky world collides. Secrets are soon unearthed, proving nothing is quite as it first might appear.
Another Seven drama Australian Gangster, initially flagged for 2018, may also have to wait for 2020 due to legal matters. It stars Les Norton lead Alexander Bertrand.
But Seven still has new drama series Secret Bridesmaids’ Business to come this year. Based on a play by Elizabeth Coleman it stars Abbie Cornish, Katie McGrath and Georgina Haig.
Meanwhile Nine may also be holding off Season 4 of Doctor Doctor with Rodger Corser until 2020.
During the My Room Telethon this week cast addition Kate Jenkinson said “Next year on Channel Nine, I believe.”
A Nine spokesperson told TV Tonight no date has been confirmed for the series.
Nine is currently filming Halifax: Retribution in Melbourne with Rebecca Gibney reprising the title role plus Anthony LaPaglia, Jessica Marais and Jacqueline McKenzie.
The local drama slate for 2019 still includes Mr. Inbetween (Foxtel), Black B*tch (ABC), Playing for Keeps (10), and Hungry Ghosts (SBS) while 10 has been filming The Secrets She Keeps.
