Network Ten Announces Expanded Line-up of Seriously Good TV For 2012

Network Ten announces its strongest program line-up in recent years, with a big new
entertainment format, an exciting slate of Australian drama, seven new
international series and plans to strengthen its dominance in daytime.

Network Ten chief programming officer, David Mott said: “2012 is shaping up as one
of our most entertaining years ever. We are firmly focused on dominating in 18-49.”
New to TEN in 2011, come two new US dramas:

TERRA NOVA - In this highly anticipated series, filmed in the rainforests of Queensland, Steven Spielberg’s ambitious drama is an epic adventure that’s set to turn the sci-fi genre on its head. Think Jurassic Park meets Lost!

HOMELAND – a gritty psychological drama starring Claire Danes and Mandy
Patinkin. The series centres on the homecoming of a US Marine and the CIA agent
who suspects him of plotting a terrorist attack on US soil.

NEW TO TEN IN 2012

BREAKFAST – TEN is shaking up early mornings with BREAKFAST. Featuring a
comination of news and entertainment, BREAKFAST will be the perfect start to the
day. Speaking at Wednesday night’s launch event, the first of BREAKFAST’s co-hosts
Andrew Rochford said: “Breakfast radio has taught me a great deal about how
people want to start their day. They want the facts, but they want them in a light
and entertaining way.”

YOUNG TALENT TIME – the show that launched the careers of Dannii Minogue, Tina
Arena and Debbie Byrne returns home to TEN. Hosted by ex Australian Idol, Rob Mills and coproduced
by the show’s original creator, Mr Johnny Young, YOUNG TALENT TIME
2012 will be a contemporary take on the original format - just right for the GLEE
generation.

NEW AUSTRALIAN DRAMA IN 2012
BIKIE WARS - BROTHERS IN ARMS – From Screentime, the makers of Underbelly, and
based on the best-selling book by Sandra Harvey, new series BIKIE WARS – BROTHERS
IN ARMS is a compelling story of the Comancheros and the Bandidos – and their
murderous showdown at Milperra.

UNDERGROUND – THE JULIAN ASSANGE STORY – set in Melbourne in the 1990s, this
real-life drama follows the activities of the accused underground hacker as he
cracks the codes to the CIA’s computer systems. It’s the true story of Julian Assange.

PUBERTY BLUES – the TV adaption of Kathy Lette and Gabrielle Carey’s groundbreaking
coming-of-age story, this series is a rites of passage tale about two
teenage girls. It’s a frank and fearless look at teens in the 1970s.

REEF DOCTORS – Lisa McCune joins TEN as co-producer and star of a fast-paced
action-adventure series called REEF DOCTORS. Due to start production later this
year, the series will be filmed in and around the stunning Great Barrier Reef and the
Daintree Rainforest of Northern Queensland.

NEW INTERNATIONAL CONTENT IN 2012

THE GRAHAM NORTON SHOW – in 2012, TEN is giving viewers a whole new reason to
stay in on Saturday nights with the show that’s a must for A-list celebrities. This is one of the funniest programs on British television - it’s fast, it’s fun and it’s wickedly cheeky.

TEN’s long running partnerships with Twentieth Century Fox and CBS will continue to
deliver in 2012 with:

NEW GIRL – a witty new half-hour comedy starring Zooey Deschanel as an adorable
20-something trying to get over a bad break-up. In 20's REALLY!

THE FINDER – from the creator of Bones, comes a new one-hour spin-off procedural,
starring Geoff Stults as the man who can find anything and anyone.

THE 2-2– a fast-paced series produced by Academy Award winner, Robert De Niro
and featuring an ensemble cast that includes Leelee Sobieski, THE 2-2 revolves
around six rookie cops learning to balance their personal lives with the demands of
the job.

THE GIFTED MAN – New from CBS, THE GIFTED MAN stars Patrick Wilson as an ultra
competitive surgeon whose life is changed when his ex-wife dies.

HOW TO BE A GENTLEMAN – inspired by the book of the same name, this is a
comedy about unlikely friendships. Starring Reece Darby (Flight of the Conchords)
and Kevin Dillon (Entourage), HOW TO BE A GENTLEMAN adds another comedy to
TEN’s line-up.

RETURNING IN 2012

In addition to the all new YOUNG TALENT TIME, all TEN’s marquee franchises are set
to return in 2012.

Get ready for some romance with THE BIGGEST LOSER – SINGLES. Settle in for
another delicious season of MASTERCHEF AUSTRALIA. And then get ready for a
whole new RENOVATORS experience.

Speaking about the return of THE RENOVATORS, Mr Mott said: “So far the format has
underperformed. But, it’s a brand we believe in so we are working directly with
Shine to renovate THE RENOVATORS for 2011 and beyond.”

Also back for another year, hit US comedy MODERN FAMILY, and returning for
season three, the little music show that could, GLEE. Fans can look forward to the
next installment of MERLIN. There’s also more of the LAW & ORDER franchise, another
season of THE GOOD WIFE, and plenty more NCIS and NCIS: LOS ANGELES.
TEN’s line-up of returning US hits is underpinned by a raft of locally produced light
entertainment formats including more BONDI RESCUE and another season of BONDI
VET.

In daytime, there will be more hilarity with the girls from THE CIRCLE, as well as all
your favourite day-time hits. George and the 6.30 team will be back in 2012
followed by another ripper year of Dave Hughes, Charlie Pickering and Carrie
Bickmore as they bring you their take on the stories of the day in THE 7PM PROJECT.
Also returning in 2012, fans of the Proudman family can look forward to the next
installment of OFFSPRING.

Network Ten and Spring, with thanks to McDonald’s, announce the return of one of Australia’s all-time family favourite shows. It’s A Knockout will be fronted by HG Nelson, Brad McEwan, and Charli Robinson and is set to screen over summer of 2011 on TEN.

Big, colourful and plenty of fun, It’s a Knockout is an iconic Australian TV series that has been revamped for the 21st century with bigger, more visual, and more outrageous games.

Hosting this modern take on a classic will be renowned sporting guru HG Nelson. His original and hilarious take on the rough and tumble action of the competitors will bring a whole new dimension to the program.

In his first prime time entertainment program, Network Ten sports personality, Brad McEwan, will provide the anchor role from which HG will launch his magic, while Southern Cross Austereo on-air personality and former Hi-5 member, Charli Robinson, will be in amongst the games action.

David Mott, Ten’s chief programming officer said: “Summer is a time for light, fun, family viewing and It’s A Knockout is the perfect show to offer all that and more. Our line up of HG, Brad and Charli is sure to bring the
right mix of social commentary, humour and dare I say sporting acumen...to this contemporary take on TV’s ultimate arena showdown.”

Heading up Spring, Tony Skinner said: "Spring is delighted to be producing one of Australia's most remembered and loved game shows. HG, Brad and Charli will undoubtedly give It's A Knockout a whole new level of entertainment. This summer will be a whole lot brighter thanks to the foresight of TEN and ingenuity of the production team at Spring."

Host, H. G. Nelson said: “It’s a Knockout is The People’s Olympics. This hour of fun features contestants with no real athletic abilities having a crack at events that should be starters on London’s gold medal agenda.
'Knockout' fills the yawning hole in TEN's sports schedule now that it has moved on from its top rating AFL coverage. Personally it is a dream come true to be packing down with Brad and Charli trackside calling the
fund raising mayhem.”

Four teams of 15 members each will compete in the eight one-hour episodes to be screened over the coming summer. Each team will have a distinctive summer theme in what will play out as a state v’s state smack-down.

It’s A Knockout is a global franchise based on the French format Intercities, which has been broadcast around the world for over 50 years.

It’s A Knockout is the first commission for the recently announced production company Spring, a division of FremantleMedia Australia.

Network Ten is pleased to announce singing sensation and international superstar Tina Arena will join the Young Talent Time team once again - this time as a mentor and judge, when the iconic series returns to television in 2012.

This highly anticipated new incarnation of the original TV phenomenon will feature Tina Arena on Young Talent Time delivering her own blend of encouragement and critique to our pint sized talent quest contestants. As per the original series, a variety of performers, including singers, jugglers, dancers and musicians, will take part in the talent quest each week. Alongside the talent quest element will be performances from the core YTT cast, a team of ten outstanding young Aussie performers who will deliver a variety of group and solo numbers each show.

As a member of this illustrious cast from 1977-1983, Tina sang her way into the hearts of a generation, joining YTT as a seven year old with a bundle of personality and a vocal range to match. She quickly became a household name around the country and went on to forge a stellar international career with a string of number one albums. More recently she swelled the hearts of Australians when she joined Cadell Evans for an impromptu rendition of Advance Australia Fair on the winner’s podium at the 2011 Tour De France in Paris, where she now lives.

On returning to the show that launched her career, Tina said, “I am really excited to be coming back and being involved in the re-launch of Young Talent Time. It is the ‘original’ TV talent show format - it’s unique and iconic but it’s also typically Australian”.

David Mott, Chief Programming Officer said, “We couldn’t be more pleased to have Tina Arena on YTT. She has inspired and entertained generations of fans and her advice and guidance for the contestants and cast will be invaluable. She is a born entertainer who is passionate about fostering young talent. What more could we ask for."

Preparation for Young Talent Time kicked off in September with auditions for the cast and talent quest taking place around the country, resulting in a staggering 30,000 kids turning up in a bid to be part of the show.

Tina will be joined by a second judge, who will be announced shortly, when Young Talent Time hosted by Rob Mills, returns to TEN next year.

Young Talent Time is produced by Network Ten and Granada Media Australia.

Network Ten today announced the commissioning of The Shire, a bold, highly addictive ‘dramality’ series that follows the often outrageous lives and loves of a group of people who are destined to become the most talked about in Australia.

With its stunning beauty and "tribe-like" community, the Sutherland Shire in Sydney’s south is the perfect location for this very real glimpse into the private lives of a distinctive group of Australian culture.

Shine Australia has scoured the Shire to assemble a brilliant ensemble of charismatic and controversial characters.

From the boys next door, to the girls next door, from the heart-breakers, to the home-wreckers – The Shireis guaranteed to raise a commotion, and fast become one of the most talked-about shows on the box.

David Mott, chief programming officer, Network Ten said: “The Shire is a fascinating look into a unique subculture in Australia and the first time a local ‘dramality’ series is being introduced to the commercial television landscape.

“The genre has been a hit in the US (Jersey Shore) and the UK (The Only Way is Essex), changing the way people view television, and we intend to do the same.

“The Shire epitomises the progression of reality television and in this social media age, we’ve built a show that is not only entertaining but capitalises on all the twitterverse and blogosphere has to offer.

“It is the next step in the reality TV phenomenon TEN pioneered in 2001 when we introduced Big Brother to the Australian market and a strong, confident addition to our 2012 program line-up,” Mr Mott said.

“The Shire is a glimpse behind the curtain into the heart of Australia as you have never seen it before.”

From their hectic and crazed social lives to problems with work and family, The Shire will leave no stone unturned.

With its beautiful back-drop, controversial cast and Shine's production expertise, The Shire has all the ingredients to become one of the breakout hits of 2012.

Production on The Shire starts Monday March 26, in...the Shire.
