Nine loves ‘Daughters’

Move means net will meet government's drama quota

The Oz TV drama industry got a boost Monday with the news that terrestrial broadcaster Nine Network is commissioning a seventh series of outback show “McLeod’s Daughters,” which airs Stateside on Hallmark.

The skein about two women who run a cattle ranch, produced by Millennium Television and Nine Films & Television with coin from South Australian Film Corp., had lost viewers recently, prompting speculation that it could be axed.

The news means Nine will meet the government-ordered drama quota for this year.

“McLeod’s Daughters” is one of the few Oz dramas that’s a hit overseas, airing in more than 120 countries in Europe and Asia. International sales are handled by Southern Star Intl.
