Channel 10 are having another go at sketch comedy with a show titled Mark Loves Sharon.
I am sure you have seen the promo's online with the words "Mark Loves Sharon" flashing on a big screen TV like at the footy or a baseball game.
Much like the following picture.
It is a great promo and actually make me go searching on google in regards to what it is about. Then I found out it was for a new comedy for channel 10 and though "oh here we go again."
Channel 10's promotions for their comedy shows is quite good. A recent channel 10 "comedy" was The Wedge. Now whilst I can't recall what the promotion tools were, (aka find the promo's on the web), I do remember thinking at the time that this show was going to be hilarious, and i convinced all my friends to make sure they were sitting down in front of the TV to watch this show. What a flop. The show was horrible.
This new show, Mark Loves Sharon, which is due to come to our televisions in Late June is about one of the characters from The Wedge, Mark Wary, a troubled sports star. In the Sydney Confidential section of newspaper, The Daily Telegraph it is explained that the plot of this mockumentary is "a six-part series on the temptations and indulgences of sporting fame."
It sounds like a recipe for success, however with Channel 10 letting me down with their comedy in the past, I will wait for the critics to come out with reviews before I watch another one of their sketch shows.
