I love Fridays. It really is one of the nights of the week where sitting down in front of the TV is something I look forward to with TV3′s comedy lineup. Is this the same for you or is there another night of the week that does that for you?
Whatever the case, that and any other topics you’d like to discuss about TV can be done right here in today’s TV Talk post.
No $100,000 funding from NZ On Air for another series of Walter Wants a Woman yet but this 18 part web series is off to screen at the 2014 Los Angeles Web Festival.
Kiwi webseries ‘Walter Wants a Woman’ has been selected to screen at the Los Angeles Web Festival 2014. LA WebFest was the first festival for web-series in the world and the team (Rachel Choy, Jeremy Garland & Callum Butcher) are honoured to be involved in the 3 day festival. The festival takes place from the 26th of March – 30th March, 2014 and several episodes will be screened.
‘Walter Wants a Woman’ is a web-series consisting of vlogs and dates. It stars Walter, an almost-30-year-old who has decided to start something he thinks he’ll be quite good at: dating. He’s never had a girlfriend before, but he has had a hug once! He has some interesting ideas about dating and really is quite hopeless when it comes to girls. Full of awkward tension, and plenty of cringeworthy moments, it’s a raw and hilarious comedy. Continue reading »

The supernatural mystery series Conception has been passed on by NBC. Additional scripts had been ordered for the drama but it appears as though Heroes: Reborn won out over the two similar series.

The BBC is killing off its youth channel BBC Three (home of ‘Gavin & Stacey’, ‘Little Britain’, ‘Being Human’, ‘Bad Education’ and very much regarded as the home of new comedy on the BBC) to make £100 million in cuts.
BBC Three is to be dropped from TV schedules and will move online, as part of the BBC’s cost-cutting plans.
It means shows such as Don’t Tell The Bride and Pramface will only be available through the iPlayer, rather than Freeview, satellite or cable. Continue reading »
