Nearly two weeks ago Nine programmer Michael Healy told TV Tonight Nine had dropped promos for the sci-fi miniseries V, which had begun after a moment when the network was “considering our options.”
The series is not planned to run until the ratings season in 2010, possibly as late as March.
Last night a promo ran during The Apprentice Australia, without any indication of 2010, or even “Coming Soon.”
It’s one thing to get people excited about upcoming product, it’s another to run promotions so far out from an airdate as to be downright unfair.
Seven ran promos for FlashForward as far back as June for a September launch, and we all know how that turned out.
Nine’s V plugs look like breaking that record.
UPDATE: Nine has advised the promo was a mistake from Presentation department.
