The Herald reports:
TV3 has just announced the famous faces who will host their new TV series, The Project.
Jesse Mulligan, 7 Days regular and Josh Thomson, and popular TV presenter Kanoa Lloyd will front the new series set to launch in the 7pm weekday slot in February.
The Project aims to “combine current affairs and entertainment in a unique way”, giving fresh, funny take on the stories from around world each day.
After producing 7 Days for seven years, executive Producer Jon Bridges says he can’t wait to bring the new hosts and the show to Kiwi screens.
It sounds more like 7 Days is moving to a daily 7 pm slot, than a serious news and current affairs show.
Not that there is anything wrong with that. I like 7 Days.
Kanoa, Josh and Jesse will be joined each night by a panel of guests which will include media commentators, comedians, sport, political and other personalities.
The Australian show leans heavily towards the left. Hopefully the NZ show might be more balanced.
