If Nine is still planning to screen UK adventure series Sinbad this year, it isn’t saying so.
The 12 part SKY1 series began in the UK earlier this month starring Elliot Knight as Sinbad, plus Naveen Andrews and Sophie Okonedo.
When Nine picked up the Aussie rights to the series in March last year Michael Healy, Nine’s Director of Television said, “The Nine Network is pleased to be part of such a great franchise like Sinbad. We look forward to bringing this modern adaptation of the adventurous classic to Australian audiences in 2012. We’re sure this big budget production will capture the imagination of our viewers and keep the legend of Sinbad alive.”
In all its various promos for post-Olympics content, there is no sign of Sinbad to be seen.
TV Tonight asked Nine if it still planned to air the series as promised this year.
They declined to comment.
