The big announcement tipped for tomorrow’s 10 Upfronts is the names of the new MasterChef Australia judges.
There have been few rumours around who will get this prized gig.
In August Who magazine reported Maggie Beer, Curtis Stone, and Poh Ling Yeow were locked in (apparently). The Herald Sun later tipped Curtis Stone, 2012 winner Andy Allen and an “unnamed female.” I guess that makes Curtis Stone the hot favourite. It’s pretty clear a female is mandatory, but apart from that who knows….
Expect renewals for Dancing with the Stars, Five Bedrooms, The Masked Singer, The Bachelor franchise amongst other key shows. Australian Survivor: All Stars is already back in early 2020 -will there be a second? There are whispers the confirmed season of I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here will launch earlier than ever (happy new year crew!) as part of 10’s 50 week strategy.
There should be footage screened for upcoming drama The Secrets She Keeps but what about more of My Life is Murder and Mr. Black, both from CJZ Productions, and sketch comedy Kinne Tonight?
I Am Roxy is the front-runner for a full season from Pilot Week, will we get a third week of pilots in 2020? Also rumoured for a belated green light is a Drunk History Australia season.
Rule out good news for Sunday Night Take-Away I’m afraid, and I’m keen to hear about Celebrity Name Game which hasn’t yet improved on Pointless in a tough slot.
10’s Upfronts are being held across two events for advertisers at Darling Harbour. The first is a breakfast event where all the big news will emerge.
As I’m attending, ratings may be a little late tomorrow!
