Claremont drama pushed to 2023

Drama based on WA murders has been pushed back after production delays.

Upcoming Seven drama Claremont, based on WA murders, will now screen in 2023 instead of 2022.

A Seven spokesperson told TV Tonight filming delays due to WA’s COVID restrictions has pushed production by Screentime back.

The serie, announced at 2022 Upfronts, surrounds the disappearance of young women and a 25-year investigation by the police and one tenacious journalist, all in dogged determination to seek justice.

This leaves Seven with no new local drama on its primary channel in 2022.

It screened Housos: The Thong Warrior on 7mate and a Free to air premiere Ms Fisher’s Modern Murder Mysteries S2 on 7TWO.

But Home & Away alone puts Seven at a higher local drama output than Nine or 10.

Nine has screened Underbelly: Vanishing Act and After the Verdict while 10 has screened Neighbours and a delayed broadcast of Five Bedrooms.

After quota overhauls by the previous government, networks must meet 250 annual points through a mix of drama (adult and/ or children’s) and documentary -the latter capped at 50 points to prevent Reality TV dominating.
