Doctors and a bit of fantasy (a la Lost, Heroes, Twin Peaks etc) dominate the programs picked up by Australia’s three commercial networks in the Los Angeles screenings of new network offerings for later in the year and 2010.

The deals were done by the local networks at the weekend under production deals with either the networks (FOX and CBS for Ten), or producers, Warners for Nine, Disney (ABC) and NBC with Seven. Some producers sold shows to networks where other Australian networks have deals, such as the new Jerry Bruckeimer program The Forgotten. Seven has the deal with NBC, Nine has the relationship with Bruckheimer through Warners.
