Gigi Edgley and Debra Byrne have joined an online petition to save Tricky Business from being axed by Nine.
So far there is no official word on the fate of the new drama, but a Nine spokesperson yesterday told TV Tonight it was “unlikely” to return.
With disappointing ratings and multiple timeslots its fate seems sealed.
A fan by the name of Trent is running an online campaign at gopetition which has around 200 signatures so far, in a bid to save the show from getting the chop.
He told TV Tonight, “This is a fantastic show that deserves a second chance!!”
Gigi Edgley has used her Twitter account to rally support.
“Please help save Tricky! http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/save …” she tweeted.
‘Debra Byrne’ signed “Give it a chance in a time slot people can rely upon x”
‘Gigi Edglet’ signed: ”You know you want to : )
Next week Nine is holding a media launch for three new dramas, Howzat!, Underbelly: Badness and House Husbands. It will make things a little bit awkward if the fate of Tricky Business is in doubt.
A recent fan campaign for Foxtel’s Spirited appeared to have an effect on the Pay TV show winning a reprieve via Showtime, but so far no rescue has been forthcoming.
