2017 Promises To Be Even Bigger On TEN
Published: 04 November 2016
Network Ten has announced its slate for 2017, featuring an exceptional line-up of returning and new shows that promises unmissable entertainment.
New local content includes The Biggest Loser: Transformed, Common Sense from the makers of Gogglebox, all-new episodes of the iconic series Russell Coight’s All Aussie Adventures and two major drama events, Wake In Fright and Sisters.
Returning content in 2017 includes proven successes such as MasterChef Australia, KFC Big Bash League, I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!, Gogglebox Australia, Have You Been Paying Attention?, Offspring, The Wrong Girl, The Project, Family Feud, The Living Room, Shark Tank, Australian Survivor, The Bachelor Australia, The Bachelorette Australia and many more.
After a 15-year break, Russell Coight’s All Aussie Adventures sees Australia’s best-loved outback adventurer return to share his unique blend of bushcraft and self-injury with an entire new audience.
The Biggest Loser: Transformed is a contemporary and empowering new version of one of Australia’s most iconic series. Hosted by Fiona Falkiner, with trainers Shannan Ponton and Libby Babet, the re-imagined and uplifting show will take the latest advancements in health and fitness to help a group of everyday Australians tackle relatable weight issues and undergo transformations of their bodies and minds.
From the creators of the global phenomenon Gogglebox Australia comes Common Sense. The highly entertaining new show will feature a cast of real people and their real opinions as they round up the week's most talked-about news topics while in conversation with one another in their workplaces.
Drama lovers can look forward Sisters, a contemporary, feel-good family drama from the makers of Offspring, and Wake in Fright, a provocative, morally complex and brilliantly realised adaption of Kenneth Cook’s classic Australian novel.
After its triumphant return this year, Offspring will return for its seventh season. The all-star cast led by Asher Keddie and Kat Stewart will tell the next chapter in the funny, sad, uplifting, heart-warming and always engaging story of Nina Proudman and her family.
The new year will also bring a second season of Network Ten’s newest hit local drama series, The Wrong Girl. The brilliant Jessica Marais’ character Lily will continue her quest to make sense of a chaotic love life and morning television.
“We have a diverse and deeply engaging line-up for 2017, with a great mix of returning and new shows that will reach viewers across multiple screens," said Network Ten Chief Content Officer, Beverley McGarvey.
“People come to our network for shows that help them unwind or escape; that help them better understand their fellow Australians; that make them laugh; that connect them to the wider world; and that create moments that they will remember for years to come.”
