Network Ten today announced its programming line-up for 2014, including five new local series, five new overseas series, exciting new versions of established series and its biggest schedule of sport in years.
Key new shows on TEN in 2014 include the return of So You Think You Can Dance Australia, a 6pm family entertainment show, and the local drama series Secrets & Lies and Party Tricks.
ELEVEN and ONE will bring viewers a feast of new US series, while 2014 will see the launch of a new, online-only series – Lost With The Boys – on Network Ten’s industry-leading digital platform, tenplay.
Network Ten is also delighted to announce that renowned chef, author and television presenter Kylie Kwong will join the new season of MasterChef Australia.
Next year will see a second series of the television and online sensation, The Bachelor Australia, and an extended run of the new quiz show, Have You Been Paying Attention?.
Network Ten Chief Executive Officer, Hamish McLennan, said: “The first KFC T20 Big Bash League game on December 20 marks the start of TEN’s new programming strategy and line-up for 2014.
“From the Big Bash we go straight into the XXII Olympic Winter Games. Then the rest of our line-up for the first part of 2014 starts to roll out, including So You Think You Can Dance Australia, The Biggest Loser: Challenge Australia, Secrets & Lies and Puberty Blues.
“The new line-up clearly demonstrates TEN’s focus on Event TV and people aged 25 to 54 – the biggest and most important age group in television – and represents our strongest start for many years,” he said.
