An Oz bash for ‘Crash’

'Palace' party

SYDNEY — A hip, refurbished pub in the Kings Cross red light district was the venue of choice to launch Fox TV’s sexy new backpacker soap “Crash Palace.”

Upbeat speeches by Foxtel CEO Kim Williams and Fox Australia’s exec producer of TV David Martin elicited laughter, but Martin’s reiterations about how very cheap the show was to produce drew good-humored groans from overworked staffers.

A handful of uncomfortable looking suits stood out amid the skein’s spunky young thesps, producers and writers at the Feb. 27 event.

The 65 half-hour eps, co-produced in Sydney by L.A.’s Fox TV and Fox Studios Australia, bows on feevee Foxtel March 11.
