Seven is pushing ahead with episodes of Killing Time amid reports that a convicted murderer claims key scenes would be a contempt of court if his second appeal against a conviction is successful and a retrial is ordered.
The Herald Sun reports the man was charged with murder in September 2006, and was initially convicted in 2007.
He successfully appealed that conviction, and was retried in 2010 and again found guilty and was sentenced to life without parole.
He has again appealed against that conviction and now wants the show banned until the completion of any retrial.
The TV1 series was originally due to premiere in 2010 but was delayed by a year due to similar matters before the Supreme Court of Victoria. Underbelly was also delayed in Victoria for similar reasons in 2008.
A spokesperson for Seven indicated they would be opposing any application to withhold the series.
Seven has also stepped up its screening schedule, now playing Killing Time as a double episode at 9:30pm.
Strike Back is pushed out to a later start, now at 11:30pm.
