- 10 to announce new third multichannel
- Coming in 2020: Bachelor in Paradise, The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, The Masked Singer, Junior Masterchef, new-look Living Room
10 will announce a new general entertainment channel later this year. The third multichannel, confirmed today in a network presentation to advertisers, will draw upon ViacomCBS content. A launch date has not been confirmed.
In a virtual presentation to media buyers today Beverley McGarvey ViacomCBS Australia & New Zealand Chief Content Officer & EVP and Rod Prosser ViacomCBS and Network 10 Chief Sales Officer talked up its early 2020 results including for MasterChef Australia, I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, Australian Survivor, The Project and Gogglebox.
“The new normal in Australia is very different,” Beverley McGarvey said.
“10 is no longer the third TV network. We are ViacomCBS, a vital and confident multiplatform network within a content powerhouse attracting the most valuable audiences, challenging our competitors in ways they never imagined.”
Confirmed as still coming in 2020 are Bachelor in Paradise, The Bachelor, The Bachelorette and The Masked Singer -all hosted by Osher Günsberg- the return of Junior Masterchef and a new look Living Room.
As always there will also be more Gogglebox while Kinne Tonight is returning.
Absent were a planned domestic season for The Amazing Race Australia and any sign of more Australian Survivor this year -both have been hit hard by restrictions.
There was no word on further local drama, but Neighbours continues to win praise for finding a way forward with production.
Media reports today also confirm I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here is back for 2021 -but potentially filmed in Australia.
Today’s presentation featured 10 personalities led by Julia Morris, Osher Gunsberg, Jonathan LaPaglia, Tom Gleisner, Dave Hughes, Chris Brown and more.
