Seven has “postponed” plans for a third season of Little Big Shots.
Casting for a new season got underway last August, which indicated Seven was keen to resume the Shane Jacobson-hosted series, which has rated well.
But it did not rate a mention at October Upfronts, after new CEO James Warburton announced network cutbacks. No doubt flying in overseas talent, with a guardian, does not come cheap.
The previous casting notice now advised, “Please note that due to changes in our Production schedule, Little Big Shots Australia – Series 3 has been postponed for this year.
“We encourage you to continue with your application and will be sure to review your submission once we begin casting again.”
James Warburton also tossed out Sunday Night, Today Tonight and a string of long-running state-based travel shows.
It isn’t clear when -or if- Little Big Shots will resume.
