The Cooks: articles

Cooks in a stew

THE team that has worked on Ten's new drama The Cooks is in despair over comments made by Foxtel's director of television Brian Walsh in the SMH's Guide this week. Walsh, a big investor in the drama, said he was disappointed with the final product, doubted it would be a commercial success and swore off another drama project with Ten.

As a co-investor Foxtel is "consulted" but has no real control. None of it augurs well for the show, which is due to air at 9.30pm on October 18. The scheduling so late in the year for The Cooks means it will screen partly in a non-ratings period. Ten doesn't seem to have much faith in it either.
