    Nine’s great inspiration. Let’s clone “Revenge”. Let’s call it “Return to Eden Again” or “Revenge Down Under”.

    i hope they do a better job with the next Underbelly than they did with Razor, i was really looking forward to that one but to me the scripts were fairly weak & so was alot of the acting, with the exception of Danielle Cormack.

    Return to Eden sounds like they are trying to ride off the Revenge success…Gallipoli sounds like a good idea however

    Well said! I’m really hoping the team at House Husbands can push through and bring a new voice to the Nine stable, and in turn, encourage Nine to look outside their pretty limited range of suppliers.

    House Husbands launched today includes young producers from the Playmaker Scribe initiative. Cordell Jigsaw and Goalpost Pictures have also had Nine Drama commissions, plus others in Kids TV Drama.

    I despair of Nine’s drama choices – and judging by the rest of these comments I’m not entirely alone. I want Nine to take a few risks with a range of producers and projects – all they really do is re-commission from John Edwards at Southern Star, Des Monaghan at Screentime and Hal McElroy so there’s an inevitable sameyness about the work – and indeed remakes. There are so many great projects out there and a lot more talented and passionate producers who are locked out. It’s a pity because, as Seven and Ten know, a great drama series can anchor the night week in week out. Nine meet quota obligations under sufference – but it defines a Network brand. Just saying….Am I alone in this?

    According to the Daily Telegraph, Gallipoli is slated to air in 2015. That makes sense now.

    Gallipoli was 1915. WW1 was 1914-1918.
    How can a drama in 2013 be a 100th anniversary?

    @Trix. Yes to Class Of ’74/’75 remake. Remember Abigail as the sexy school teacher ? Or was she a headmistress?

    If Nine are keen to recycle old shows, I want Pacific Drive back!

    But Ronnie, you’ve never liked Nine dramas…..

    I loved Return To Eden, both the mini-series and the 22 part series. Would love the original cast to be involved in some way.

    Can’t wait for the remake of Chances. And Arcade. And Class of ’74.

    Is it now time for McLeod’s Grand Daughters?

    With Nines’s recent poor track record regarding Aussie drama, I suppose you can’t blame them for rehashing old ideas. But this is too much.
    How long til we get updated versions of Taurus Rising, Waterloo Station or Starting Out ?
    Also, I think Rebecca Gibney’s character in Eden was Stephanie and Wendy Hughes/Peta Toppano played Jilly.

    Can the original Return to Eden ever be surpassed? That was Gold!

    What’s next? A Sons & Daughters miniseries?

    Stop press: Nine announces rehashed dramas we’ve seen before from Screentime, John Edwards and Hal McElroy. Insert title “here” because it doesn’t really matter what it is.

    I know it’s 100 years since WW1 and we’ll be inundated but do we need to see Aussie soldiers going over the top yet again? I will not put myself through watching it over and over in 2014.

    Pretty hard to get excited about this announcement.

    Return to Eden – seriously? This not a joke?

    What is it with these channels that can’t come up with new ideas?
    But no, you have to remake old stuff!!!
    Another list of things I won’t be watching.

    Me loved me a little Return to Eden. Interesting to see if there’s a new spin on it.
