TV Tonight hears whispers that following the end of MasterChef Australia, TEN will air Offspring at 8:30pm Wednesdays.

That will see it go head to head with City Homicide.

It will also see repeats of East West 101 take on two first run local dramas. Ironically, SBS is giving the second season a rerun after it struggled against Packed to the Rafters last year. Actor Don Hany appears in both East West 101 and Offspring.

The TEN series produced by John Edwards (Tangle, Rush, Dangerous, The Secret Life of Us) and Imogen Banks (Tangle) began life as a telemovie before being approved to series. It stars Asher Keddie in a story of the impossible loves of 30-something obstetrician Nina Proudman, and her fabulously messy family, as they navigate the chaos of modern life. Also featuring John Waters, Kat Stewart and Deb Mailman it has been described as a “buoyant romantic comedy.”

Added with other dramas on air, these moves will see viewers treated to first run local dramas on four consecutive weeknights.


Its got a good cast so will give the show a go. Havent seen the telemovie though so maybe i should watch that first? Has it aired already i cant remember.

I reckon it will go to Sunday nights rather than Wednesdays; I hope so anyway. The promos seem quite good.

i should check the topics more closely. I was just about to start an ''offspring'' topic! lol. Luckily i double checked in here first.

From the ads i've seen, it looks alright. I've been a fan of Don Hany since he started out on East Wet 101, and Asher Keddie's in it too, and i think she's a good actress too. I will try watch the show, whenever it begins

Yeah the promos are pretty good. Had to laugh at her internal monologues "Can't even stay awake for my own sexual fantasy" and "oh crap He's not interested. Your annoying him. Step away from the gorgeous man". ROFL :lol:

Looks quite funny. :D

I really like the promos for this show - and while I never tried "The Secret Life of Us" (or most of the other Aussie dramas like this), the promos may just have me interested enough to check this out!

The promos sort of reminded me of Bridget Jones... which is always a good thing in my eyes. And that guy she has a crush on is hotttttt so will definitely be tuning in when it starts.
It's gonna be... legend... wait for it.. - DARY!

Offspring to replace Good Wife

TV Tonight wrote:Airdate: Offspring

The stars of Offspring joined producers and network executives at Crown Metropol in Melbourne last night for the launch of the new TEN drama.

In attendance were Asher Keddie, John Waters, Don Hany, Deborah Mailman, Linda Cropper, Kat Stewart, Eddie Perfect and Richard Davies, joined by many of the nation’s media.

TEN Drama executive Rick Maier told the crowd, “We are very fortunate to have this show. Those of you who have seen the telemovie will know it’s just outstanding work all round. There are a lot of people to thank for that particularly Beverley McGarvey and David Mott, they commissioned the series. Also the key creators of the show, Debra Oswald, an award winning writer who is famous for the line now ‘The neck, the neck, I need to kiss the neck. I want to have sex with this man!’

“If you wrote your dream team now this would be it. It’s a compliment to the production staff, the writing staff and the directors we have, that this cast said ‘Yes’ to this show. Believe me they get knocked off their stand with offers of work.

“I think I counted up 48 AFI Awards and 92 Logies and that was John Waters by himself.”

Maier also thanked John Edwards, Imogen Banks, Kate Dennis, Southern Star, Film Victoria, Claire Tonkin and Daniel Monaghan plus marketing and publicity teams. He also acknowledged TEN’s promotion team which recently won a Gold Promax Award in the US.

John Edwards also told a tale of how writer Debra Oswald asked her kids how she could create a relationship show that men would want to watch.

“And one of the kids said, ‘Put explosions in it. Blow crap up.’ So that became the show!” he said.

“This has been a ‘blast’, huge fun and a great joy to make.”

Edwards also acknowledged director Kate Dennis and his producing partner Imogen Banks (Dangerous, Tangle).

“Many of the cast signed up without seeing the script,” Banks explained. “It was just conversations at the pub.

“Not only our core cast, but we were incredibly lucky with our guest cast, many of whom are here tonight.”

TEN’s Angela Bishop hosted the evening, which also featured a music performance by Eddie Perfect.

The show premieres at 8:30pm Sunday August 15th in a 2 hour telemovie.
