Rebel Wilson to host Pooch Perfect for Seven
2020 Seven-produced series will offer $100,000 for Australia's best dog groomer.
Rebel Wilson will host a new competition dog styling series for Seven, Pooch Perfect.
Currently in pre-production, the series will feature ten professional dog stylists from around the country competing in a series of themed challenges revealing epic transformations of beloved pets.
$100,000 in prize money is on offer for the contest, determined by a panel of the industry’s top judges.
The announcement follows a quiet casting announcement last month seeking dog groomers.
“My childhood was full of weekend adventures at dog shows all around Australia and my family had a business selling pet products out of a caravan – such as leads, treats and the best dog styling equipment available,” said Rebel Wilson.
“This show with Seven is going to be a ton of fun and showcase some amazing dogs and dog lovers. Technically I’m allergic to dogs though…so hopefully they can edit around my sneezing!”
Seven’s Director of Network Programming, Angus Ross, says: “Rebel has a fantastic energy, great timing, the sharpest wit and like many Australians, she loves dogs. With her passion, humour and insight, she’s a great host for this entertaining and heart-warming series.”
The series is a Seven Studios production to screen in 2020.
Rebel Wilson will also host and executive produce the first Australian Amazon Original series, LOL: Last One Laughing.
