Seven has a coup by signing Andy Lee to The Front Bar.
“Obviously, he’ll learn a lot from working with two of the industry giants … and Andy Maher,” Mick Molloy said on Friday.
Lee, a true blue Carlton fan, so far has no other TV gigs confirmed for 2020. Nine has not renewed Talkin’ ‘Bout Your Generation and is yet to announce any Hamish & Andy project.
“Management and I weighed up all of our available options and it certainly wasn’t just a money issue … it had a lot to do with a lifelong supply of beer which The Morning Show couldn’t match,” Lee said.
Lee’s original format True Story with Hamish Blake, was recently sold to NBC.
The Front Bar returns to Seven soon.
