Seven west media and Yahoo expand their lineup with exclusive comedies and reality television.
This morning, Yahoo7 announced that PLUS7 would be airing a series of first-run releases with the launch of PLUS7 Exclusives. This news comes less than a month after Presto announced they would be airing Season 2 of the successful debut series, Aquarius. It seems 7PLUS are trying to replicate this success by offering their own roster of shows (courtesy of partner, Yahoo) previously unavailable in Australia (also partly owned by Seven West Media).Who would have thought, Australians really will pay for new and exciting content that’s currently not available to them (sarcasm is not my forte).
Leading the charge is Sin City Saints, a comedy starring Watchmen’s Malin Akerman and Tom Arnold (True Lies) that follows the exploits of a fictional basketball team from Las Vegas. Probably the second biggest property to air will be Other Space. A sci-fi comedy from cinematic comedy overlord, Paul Feig (Bridesmaids, Freaks and Geeks and the Ghostbusters reboot).
The full line-up of PLUS7 Exclusive is as follows:
Hoops for cash
To celebrate the launch of PLUS7 Exclusives and Sin City Saints Yahoo7 and the Sydney Kings are offering up $1000 in three local shoot-out competitions around Sydney. The first shoot-out took place today in Martin Place where our writer Maurice participated (see below).
