In February I was tipping Gruen would return with an Olympics-themed series this year and that’s exactly what’s happening.
ABC1 will launch Gruen Sweat, Olympic-themed edition of Gruen Transfer to run for 45 minutes across 4 weeks.
Wil Anderson and regulars Todd Sampson and Russel Howcroft, will examine the ”marketing machine that underpins, underwrites and over-exploits the Olympics”.
The series airs from 8:30pm Wednesday July 25 which sees Randling, bumped to 9.15pm. Life’s Too Short will move to 9.45pm.
ABC1 Channel Controller, Brendan Dahill told the Sydney Morning Herald, ”Obviously, the numbers haven’t quite worked out the way we hoped they would [but] the important thing to remember is no show is born perfect.”
Gruen Sweat will be followed by the second season of Gruen Planet.
