Kennedy Jewellery CEO James Kennedy is facing a new lawsuit by his former childhood friend Ben Scott in the NSW Supreme Court, over allegations of misappropriated money and lost revenue from Luxe Listings Sydney.

A statement of claim filed by Mr Scott in the Supreme Court reveals Channel 10 almost picked up Luxe Listings Sydney before it was sold to Amazon, which acquired all ownership and rights to the production for a lump-sum payment of $US30,000 ($45,000), plus $US15,000 ($22,500) an episode paid to Kentel Australasia, the production company then jointly run by Mr Scott and Mr Kennedy.

Mr Scott apparently did not agree with the show’s final placement and claims that Ten’s reason for exiting the agreement at the last minute was never disclosed to him, and that Mr Kennedy negotiated the Amazon deal behind his back.

According to the statement of claim, Mr Scott also claims Mr Kennedy tried to divert business opportunities for the development of new TV shows away from Kentel from early 2022 by setting up new production companies, listing himself as the sole director.

Ooooo interesting! Are you able to tell us if the show has been officially announced as a thing or is it some new project?
When Amazon were first dabbling into originals they were really huge into their own little “pilot week” thing where they dropped pilots for a bunch of originals and let users vote on what they wanted to keep going. Was really cool.

This popped up on Prime. Filmed over 12 days in 2001 with budget of $5000 it was finally edited in 2020 and released in 2021.


Looks like it has the actress who played Maggie on Home and Away.

Interesting it says “Originally shot in 2001, the footage was lost due to a house fire, has now been recovered and is being restored and edited for the first time.”


It was My Lady Jane Ep 1.

Prime seems to be adding a lot of small budget Aussie made movies that are relatively unknown.

Prime Video and Cognizant Major League Cricket (MLC) announced a partnership to grant Prime Video exclusive broadcast rights in Australia and New Zealand for the 2024 MLC season.

All 25 matches will be available on Prime Video in Australia and New Zealand from 6 July – 29 July local time (5 July – 28 July in the USA) at no extra cost to a Prime or Prime Video membership.

The announcement comes off the back of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, which saw co-host USA progress to the Super Eight stage in their tournament debut. The second season of MLC will provide a stage for the best international T20 superstars to compete alongside the USA’s top domestic players from six major cities: Dallas, San Francisco, New York City, Seattle, Los Angeles, and Washington D.C. Across the six teams, eight Australian players and five New Zealander players have been confirmed to participate in the tournament.

Key signings include:

  • Australian Test and ODI captain Pat Cummins joins the San Francisco Unicorns alongside bowler Josh Inglis, batter Jake Fraser-McGurk, and New Zealand all-rounder Matt Henry.
  • Seattle Orcas have nabbed Kiwi batsman Michael Bracewell and bowler Lance Morris.
  • Washington Freedom have secured Ricky Ponting as coach, as well as Australian batters Steve Smith, Travis Head, and Glenn Maxwell. New Zealand’s bowlers Rachin Ravindra and Lockie Ferguson are also named in the squad.
  • MI New York will see batter Tim David and bowler Trent Boult return for a second season.
  • Australian bowler Adam Zampa will join the Los Angeles Knight Riders.

The Office Australia

The series, which Amazon is making with BBC Studios Australia and New Zealand and Bunya Entertainment, has wrapped shooting, with a 2025 launch date announcement expected to come later this year. “Felicity Ward is just phenomenal, and we can’t wait for people to meet her Hannah,” said the Sydney-based Christie. “She’s brought her all to this role.”

Details of the plot are being kept under wraps, but the impact of the pandemic plays into the scripts. “We have the wealth of the original series from Ricky Gervais that everyone loves and reveres around the world, and that’s a great starting block to build on,” said Christie.

The Narrow Road to the Deep North

“It has just wrapped production,” revealed Christie. “There is talent across the board, and Jacob Elordi is just brilliant in it. It is a meaty role and an epic story. Again, it’s a very authored approach to television.”

As for whether Prime Video Australia is interested in co-productions, Christie pointed out that Narrow Road and Top End Bub would be sold internationally, with Amazon holding Aussie rights, while Deadloch rolls out in all territories. “We’ll do the model that fits best,” she added.

Never noticed that till it was pointed out .

Ok and?

The statement isn’t correct though; he isn’t disabled.


I’d say that post is by the usual xenophobic rage-baiters (not TV_Addict the original post) that haven’t actually seen the show but have just seen that photo on its own.
