Bourne to star in Aussie police series
SYDNEY — Southern Star has inked to distribute Seven Network’s new police skein “City Homicide.”
Skein, produced by John Hugginson and John Banas, focuses on cases as seen through the eyes of four young detectives and stars Shane Bourne, last seen Down Under as the host of successful export “Thank God You’re Here.”
Janeen Faithfull, commercial director of network programming and production for the Seven Network, said the web had high hopes for the drama both in Oz and overseas.
Southern Star will bow “City Homicide” at Mipcom later this year, and skein will screen on Seven in the second half of the year.
