    WAGS – is about the Wife’s and Girlfriends of sport stars. There is an international version (English) about the soccer stars wife’s and girlfriends and there is likely to be an Aussie version.

    I’d prefer it if Foxtel would just tell us which channels these shows are going to be on.

    Couldn’t give a flying fox about any of those shows. Foxtel blows.

    All the best shows are on pay tv, where most of us don’t get to see them.
    The rest of us hve to put up with fta crap like Hey Hey, Cops LAC & the 7pm Project (although it’s a little bit fancy.)

    Is that David Wenham in the pic?! Gees, I was trying to work out what new project Rhys Darby (Flight of the Conchords) was doing…

    Something Foxtel never gets a lot of credit for is they give a lot of jobs to Australian actors.With plenty of previous local shows being successful certainly gets FTA to sit up and notice.Well Done Foxtel

    But, but, American Idol????

    So that means John Edwards is producing Rush 4, Tangle 3, Spirited 2, Offspring 2, Cleo 1. Screentime is doing Cloudstreet and Fremantle doing the rest. Wow Foxtel drama is really out there on a limb taking heaps of risks with new producers and projects.

    No more Satisfaction :-(

    Any word on what Peter Berner’s ‘You Have Been Watching’ is about? It sounds like it might be similiar in concept to Tony Martin’s The Joy of Sets or last years TV Burp.

    Sounds great!

    Looking forward to project runway, it’s a fantastic show. Also wondering where the show about Wags is? I was quite excited by the sound of that :P

  17. jeremy December 14, 2010 at 9:49 am -

    Where’s the show about the WAGs?!? I was really looking forward to that!!!!

    No Walking Dead?

    Hmm — I love it when you have the best of both worlds and you can still have a day or weekend or month where there isnt a thing on the box that you want to watch

    I think this means get a life and do something constructive then sit in a chair watching a rectangular box

    ‘Untitled Alan Jones project’, words that make me simultaneously shudder and get excited at the prospects of ridiculousness. Oh, this could be great. The cringing that will be induced!
