Upfronts are generally underwhelming but Nine’s one today was more underwhelming than usual and that’s saying something.
Few quick thoughts:
Amazing Grace (on face value) seems too similar to Offspring/Love Child. Likewise, Nine needs to be careful to ensure Beach House Escape isn’t too similar to The Block.
Love Island (based on past performance) definitely won’t satisfactorily fill the gap left by The Voice in the way Nine think/hope it will.
The local version of Celebrity IOU as well as the rebooted Beauty and the Geek both have potential to perform well if they’re done right
