The Jackie Frank Show Is Off And Running
It looks like it is going to be the battle of the magazines on our TV screens this year. As I have blogged previously Jackie Frank the editor of Marie Claire magazine will have her own reality show.
This follows on from the soon to premiere The Park on Arena TV, which is covering ACP magazines Dolly and Cleo.
The camera’s have started to roll on the show with no air day as yet.
The Daily Telegraph had slightly snarky piece, saying the show was given the green light so Pacific Magazines could compete with the ACP magazines.
Frank denies this and said it will be more like the movie/doco The September Issue.
On Thursday I bumbled into the shooting of the show when I spotted Jackie waiting to go on Sunrise and I quickly introduced myself as I think the show sounds great and then I look around and ask what are those camera’s for. Oh for the reality show. Duh!
Anyway I think Seven have the opportunity to do something really great with this series if they use the Bravo TV editing style. That is warts and all but with a positive side. However if Seven use it as an advertorial for Seven and Pacific Magazines, which will be tempting, it may not be quite as entertaining.
