‘Eye Spy’ companion series for Big Brother

Extra Big Brother content will screen on 7Plus when it launches in Q3.

Seven will have a 7plus companion series for Big Brother to be known as Eye Spy.

The series will feature “discussion, the hottest content and digital sponsorship opportunities.” It’s not clear if this means Adults Only elements.

The series to launch in Q3 recently completed filming, with host Sonia Kruger and a “diverse cast.”

Production was suspended in Manly for several days due to coronavirus concerns, but then resumed which is good news given Seven is behind production on Holey Moley, SAS: Who Dares Wins, RFDS, Australia’s Got Talent and without Olympics this year.

Meanwhile The Australian reported Seven has managed to complete production on Plate of Origin with Matt Preston, Manu Feildel and Gary Mehigan.

A grand final was quietly filmed in Dural on Sunday, after an intense weekend of production and some concerns about appropriate precautions.

It also reports good buzz on the quality of cooking.

  1. Maybe with all this lack of new content to air they will pull out of the archive all the shows that have been delayed or postponed or taken off the schedule. Wife Swap anyone? Or did that finally air and I missed it

  2. The US format they’re using may usually play out live over a week but in reality the key format points can be filmed over 3 days or so. No point in pre-recording if you still play it out over a week with 3-4 down days.

  3. I can’t wait for this season of big brother… I’m a fan of the original days back on Ten, so looking forward to how this pre-recorded version goes. You get the feeling if it fails, Seven have no other choice but to return it to its live-ish format

  4. Big brother filmed for 5 weeks… thats approx 35 days…. rumours saying 10 people were evicted over the final week. What the hell!!! Suspect due to coronavirus worries. This could be dead on arrival. Hope not.

  5. Love to no how they filmed the Plate of Origin final with all these restrictions in place. Lucky to see any show in 2020 that was not already completed before the coronavirus restrictions. May be a lot of fill in shows in the back end of this year.
