With FOX Studios tied up with Marvel productions for around two years, 10’s The Masked Singer is just one of many productions that has had to hunt for a new studio space.
Like Dancing with the Stars it will relocate to Melbourne this year.
But The Voice is filming in a newly refurbished space in Moorebank, in western Sydney. ITV Studios Australia CEO David Mott told TV Tonight, “We were even looking at taking The Voice elsewhere. But we didn’t want to do that. For the coaches and for the broadcaster, it made sense for us to remain in Sydney. There are other productions that have gone to Queensland, but there’s also capacity levels there as well.”
The Masked Singer looked at using the same space, but Chief Content Officer Beverley McGarvey told TV Tonight while it was great for filming purposes the show’s security demands needed something extra.
According to the 10 exec, the Moorebank space is too easy to access -and too easy to hear from outside the name of an unmasked celebrity!
The show is now expected to film at Docklands in Melbourne.
