Network Ten has announced it has commissioned new seasons of the comedy series Hughesy, We Have A Problem and Show Me The Movie!.
Launched in January and hosted by Dave “Hughesy” Hughes, Hughesy, We Have A Problem sees the comedian and a line-up of guests solve the problems of everyday Australians – and invariably Hughesy’s many personal problems.
The launch of Show Me The Movie! in March marked the return of triple TV Week Gold Logie award-winning presenter Rove McManus to Ten.
Each week, McManus, his team captains and a cast of different actors, comedians and visiting international stars did battle in a series of funny, irreverent and always entertaining rounds about the good, the bad and the ugly of the big screen.
A co-production between Ronde Media and Blink TV, Show Me The Movie! was created by Ben Davies and Spicks and Specks creator Paul Clarke.
Ten’s chief content officer, Beverley McGarvey, said: “Last year we made a commitment to significantly increase the amount of original comedy on Ten.
“Hughesy, We Have A Problem and Show Me The Movie! were important parts of that strategy and both have attracted new viewers in their timeslots. I’m very pleased that both have been renewed and will be returning to Ten.
“The comedy doesn’t stop there. We will keep Australia laughing this year with more shows, including the brand new season of Have You Been Paying Attention?, Russell Coight’s All Aussie Adventures, more Gogglebox, Street Smart, How To Stay Married, and other new programs we will announce soon.”
The number of episodes in, and launch dates of, the new seasons of Hughesy, We Have A Problem and Show Me The Movie! will be announced later this year.
