“We’ve got to try and find new programs”
With an entertainment slate of long-running shows, ABC says they need to take a chance on new formats.
Not every new 2021 show got a renewal last year from ABC, but one which did was Question Everything with Wil Anderson and Jan Fran.
Michael Carrington, ABC’s Director of Entertainment & Specialist, acknowledges while the show was finding its feet, he hopes a second season will solidify the show.
“I think it’s had a mixed reaction in season one, but you’ve got to give it a go,” he tells TV Tonight.
“We’ve got to try and find new programs to take us into the future …when we think about our great stalwarts, which are now 12 years in the making.
“There is something in Question Everything that I just found engaging and delightful. I just really wanted to give them another go.
“We also had to shut them down for 2 weeks because of COVID. There were no audiences in the studio. They found it very difficult.
“So there was something about it, that I really think has potential, so I want to give them another go.”
