Andrew Denton is set to return to Seven for the second season of “Interview”.
Last year’s guest list included household names – Magda Szubanski, Cher, Mick Fanning, Daniel Johns, and Guy Pearce among them.
Then there were people whose stories you could scarcely believe, such as Canadian kidnap survivor Amanda Lindhout and Queenslander Rebecca Sharrock, the woman who can remember every day of her life.
Andrew Denton said: “I can’t tell you who’ll be in the blue guest chairs this year…
“Because first, that would spoil the surprise, and second, nobody tells me anything around here.
“Apparently, I’m just a pretty face.”
Denton continued: “What I can say is that it’s a privilege to sit and talk with extraordinary people at length about what makes them tick.
“That moment – when everything goes quiet and all the bullshit of television seems to drop away – that’s the moment I’m always hoping for.
“When it happens, it’s unforgettable.
“I guess that, really, we’re slow food in a fast food environment.”
He concluded: “That makes us a slightly odd fit in the world of 2019.
“So, if it makes it easier, just think of us as Marinated at First Sight.”
