Ten have a new drama/comedy series in the works called Mr & Mrs Murder, starring Shaun Micallef and Kat Stewart. i love both of these talents to death (pardon the pun) so am looking forward to this. Nice also to see some new series popping up.

Synopsis A clean freak with a heightened sense of justice, and a misfit with an encyclopaedic knowledge of just about everything, married couple Nicola and Charlie run an extreme cleaning business which specialises in crime scenes. Armed with wit, smarts and the invisibility that cleaning brings, the duo solve the crimes the cops can’t in a murder mystery with a smile.

Sounds interesting and is at least different from the generic programs we've seen from Ten so far this year. Interested to see where this goes. Definitely a big fan of both talents though, they could have solid chemistry.

Already excited for this one. Shaun and Kat are two of my favourite personalities, and both are hilarious. Here's hoping TEN will launch next year with this. From the premise alone, I can see this being huge!

Sounds a bit like Small Claims except they ran a catering business and Rosemary & Thyme (gardening).
Does this mean that Kat is no longer involved with Offspring?

Well she's been doing both Tangle and Offspring for the past few years without any issues, so I'd assume her involvement in this project won't affect her current role.

Shaun and Kat were perfect partners on Newstopia so they could generate more fireworks on this one.

It's looking unlikely that there will be a fourth season of Tangle so that frees up her time.

At least its not derivative.

I must ask why don't Australian networks produce more "high concept" stuff? Last high concept was Spirited. Why don't we make any sort of supernatural/sci-fi shows or other non-derivative dramas.

This show sounds good. And at least they continuing to commission more shows.

They do have solid chemistry.

Really looking forward to this.

That's probably right. However, this is being filmed from Aug - Xmas. Offspring is usually filmed from Sept - Feb/March.

I'm sure Ten won't be destroying their most-loved (and currently, only) Aussie drama by including Kat in another project. Considering Offspring only made it to air in the late stages of April, I'm sure a slight delay to filming will be more than acceptable.

Given the way Offspring is rating, there may not be a 4th series.

It's been picking up 150k+ in timeshifted figures and gets the MC lead-in from next week, which will surely boost the overnight figures. Ten would be stupid to cancel it now.

True ratings for current series not high,but l think Offspring will go into fourth series still.Kat will great on this new show,her performances as Billie in Offspring show the talent she has to do comedy/drama.

Considering the ratings they dealt with, with the final season of RUSH, I'm sure Offspring will have at least another year in it.

I'm pretty sure that Offspring will get a 4th season. 600k is a good figure for Ten.
As for Mr & Mrs Murder who knows? Given that it's on Ten it may not rate too well, either.
BTW, couldn't they have come up with a better title>

Not a fan of Shaun Micallef. Would have to be very very good to get me to watch it.
