I Will Survive – Is Former Hi 5 Member Nathan Foley One Of The
Network Ten is going all out on reality TV on its end of year line up with I Will Survive – Priscilla to be the first one to screen.
The concept of the show is to find the next big musical theatre star to the backdrop of the musical Priscilla Queen of The Desert.
It is ticking all the boxes – great prize money of $250,000 and a trip to New York to canvas job opportunities and some seriously good cast.
Stephan Elliot the person who wrote and directed the movie is a judge as is Jason Donovan who needs no introduction. The guest judge line up is also impressive. These have included Rachael Taylor, Madga Szubanski and Toni Colette.
Also Network Ten poached Packed To The Rafter’s star Hugh Sheridan to host it.
Also it looks like Nathan Foley who was formerly in kids group Hi 5 may be one of the contestants. I would recognise his head flick anywhere…. Well dressing up in drag will definitely finish his child entertainer persona.
However those guys in the promo may not be the contestants.
The advertisement left me a little cold. Was it because Jason Donovan was in it and it should have been more Hugh? Or was it just throwing up the usual cliches about country people? Who knows.
Network Ten has thrown money at this so deserves to be given a good look at, but maybe a more contemporary musical may have been better but then they would not have been able to travel throughout outback Australia. Which as a person on Twitter remarked this might make it easier to sell overseas.
What do you think of the promo? Will you be watching the show?
I Will Survive: Priscilla will air on Network TEN later this year.
