Channel Seven wants Erik Thomson’s drama 800 Words to be the next Packed to the Rafters
March 1, 20154:27pm
THE cast of the new Erik Thomson series 800 Words has been announced and it includes former McLeod’s Daughters star Bridie Carter.Channel 7 has described the family drama as very much like Packed to the Rafters in tone, but it’s not following that Aussie classic in being shot here.
Thomson plays recently widowed dad George Turner in the Aussie-New Zealand co-production.
Turner quits his job as a popular 800 word columnist for a Sydney newspaper who moves to the fictional New Zealand seaside town of Weld.
In 2007, Carter won season seven of Dancing with the Stars and in2011, Carter had guest roles in Rescue: Special Ops and Wild Boys.
Seven program chief Angus Ross has described 800 Words as similar in tone to Packed to the Rafters.
“If you think this show has a bit of the same feel and vibe as Packed to the Rafters, you’re dead right — and we make no apologies for that,” Ross said late last year.
