Ten drops 'Secret' drama

5 March 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

SYDNEY -- Network Ten has dumped local flagship drama The Secret Life of Us after only three episodes of the current 22-episode series after it could only muster 512,647 viewers, half its 2003 audience. The Southern Star drama languished in fourth place in its Wednesday night timeslot, after U.S. series Missing Without a Trace (1.7 million viewers) on the Nine Network and My Big Fat Obnoxious Fiance (882,707 viewers) on the Seven Network, and local pop culture show Mondo Thingo (544,203) on pubcaster ABC. A Ten spokesperson blamed a timeslot change for the ratings drop. "It will continue in production and return later in the year," she said. While the UK's Channel 4 invested in the first and second series of the drama, this fourth series has yet to be sold overseas. »
