There are two new shows in the wings at Seven and Ten. Seven placed ads in the Sydney Sunday papers directing people to this website for a program that sounds like a combination of The Amazing Race, Race Around the World and Who Dares Wins.

Meanwhile Ten appears to be looking for talent for a new Panel-style offering. Showtime, the independent production company run by former Seven boss, Bob Campbell, is casting for a pilot and looking for people who can walk and talk and quip quickly and freely, but sound intelligent about current issues. Talk is that this program will run on Ten later in the year.
