The concept sounds stupid but I’ve just seen the promo during Underbelly and it looks good.

My first thought was the shark the serial killer they were hunting, then I re-read it, the description leaves it to be interpreted that way for a fun person like me!

I hope it’s nothing like Cops LAC. I just hope it’s actually a much better show than the premise.

Looks like they’ll use the Ninja lead-in to launch this. Or they should.

BITE CLUB

THE SERIAL KILLER IS AMONG THEM

Premiere Wednesday 15 August at 8.40pm

After surviving a shark attack, homicide detectives Dan Cooper (Todd Lasance) and Zoe Rawlings (Ash Ricardo) join forces to hunt the ultimate predator, a serial killer who is also hunting them.

Not only are they survivors but also ex-lovers. Exceptional at what they do, together they’re a force like no other. Zoe is happy in a new relationship, but after three years away Dan knows Zoe was the one he let go and wants her back. Will Dan and Zoe be able to work together to hunt down the serial killer or will they become the killer’s next victims?

Marny Kennedy (Mortified, Janet King) appears as semi-pro surfer Amber Wells, Darcie Irwin-Simpson (Love Child) is Detective Claire Hobson and Arka Das (Pulse) plays Forensic Specialist Depak Chaudhary.

At least they’ve chosen a night it where it won’t clash with other Aussie dramas but it’s weird that all the dramas have started at the same time of year now.

Sunday Rake
Monday Doctor Doctor
Tuesday 800 Words
Wednesday Bite Club

And Ten are going to have to put their drama Playing For Keeps up against one of those.

It will have to air after Bachelor or Bachelorette at 8:30 Wednesday if Gogglebox is still on air Thursday’s.

#15

Bite Club should be over by the time Playing for Keeps airs though

#16

How do you know that? Speculation has been rife thst Ten are rushing it to air from Pilot Week.

#17

It’s a guess but would make sense. It’s a female skewing drama that would benefit from airing after a female skewing reality program.

#18

Sounds awful

#19

Could explain why it’s been so long in airing?

Found this to be a big disappointment. It was really dull and dreary even with the beautiful location. Tried to build tension with the music but they forgot to do it with me story.
The less said about the shark attack the better.
