Dream Home axed

High-rating TV show Mitre 10 Dream Home has been axed by TVNZ after it found it couldn’t afford to make it.

Show host Jayne Kiely said she believed the show would return in 2011, but there would be no show next year.

Kiely blamed the economic climate for the show’s cutting. “It’s just tight out there, everything is tight.

“A lot of people give a lot of stuff on Dream Home and it’s just harder and harder to get those people on board.”

Kiely was remaining positive that the axing was not permanent and the show would return. “It’s the kind of thing that you think is going to go on and on. I really don’t think it’s gone forever – a break is good.”

The show screened its 10th season earlier this year and was produced by the now-closed Ninox Television.

TVNZ had earlier decided to commission the next season and had started scouting for locations and taking expressions of interest from couples wanting to be on the show.
