tame-the-gc-mwns2014Last night, Mediaworks announced what we can only assume is part of their line up for 2014 due to their ongoing negotiations with their output deal with Fox.  CEO Paul Maher told everyone that the deal was inches away but clearly it would be wrong to either announce or screen anything new while the agreement is still being put together.  There are rumors circulating that TV3 have lost Homeland, among others, but while the commercially sensitive negotiations are still underway, nothing is being confirmed or denied.

On arriving at Shed 10, it was fairly clear that The GC was returning.  Tame Noema was one of the waiters handing out drinks to everyone.

Guy Williams must be TV3’s go to guy for warming up every audience as it was he who herded everyone to their seats and got them ready for the presentation of the 2014 new season.

3-newsThere are plenty of times when we joke that many of the stories that make the mainstream media news may very well have been written by children but that’s exactly who 3 News are looking for through their Junior Reporter competition for 8-13 year olds.

TV Guide and 3 News have joined forces to launch a Junior Reporter writing competition open to 8-13 year-olds.

By submitting an original news report about an event or person in their community, along with an original photograph, the aspiring reporters could see their work published at 3News.co.nz and in TV Guide Magazine – and win a family trip to Auckland including a visit to the TV3 newsroom, afternoon tea with 3 News anchors Mike McRoberts and Hilary Barry, and VIP tickets to Coca Cola Christmas in the Park.

tv3logo_1I’m heading to the Mediaworks new season launch tonight where I expect to see plenty of cast members from The Block NZ and The X Factor NZ.

Which shows will be returning and what new shows will be announced?  Will we get some indication as to whether or not the Fox deal has been finalised and if Homeland is going to be screening any time soon?

The post is likely to be up late by the time I return but follow us on Twitter @NZTV and I’ll post some of the more important bits of news there.
