If you are production crew personnel and you live in Melbourne you are very possibly working on a Channel Seven production this weekend.
Three huge “shiny floor” shows all converge on the southern city this weekend: Dancing with the Stars, Australia’s Got Talent and The X Factor.
There will be over 1000 staff involved, under Freehand Productions and FremantleMedia.
Brad Lyons Head of Production for Seven told TV Tonight, “The logistics are breathtaking and a great indication of our commitment to Australian, big scale productions.
“From stylists, hair and make-up artists, musicians, cast, crew and audience members…
“Additionally we are producing, live to air, 3 footy games and Game Day on Sunday morning.
“What a blast!”
Dancing with the Stars is broadcast Live at Global Studios in South Melbourne at 6.30pm on Sunday. The first semi-final of Australia’s Got Talent, shot at Docklands on Sunday, will air next Wednesday. Three days of auditions for The X Factor will take place from Thursday until Saturday at Hisense Arena and premiere later in the year.
This is actually the second time the three reality juggernauts have converged in Melbourne at the same time.
