Hamish and Andy are signing a new deal with the Seven Network, according to showbiz reporter Peter Ford.
The move would see the duo, previously seen on Nine and TEN, returning to Seven where they previously launched Hamish and Andy in 2004, which also featured Chris Lilley, Andrew O’Keefe, Kate McCartney and Ryan Shelton. It was their first commercial TV foray following Channel 31.
But the show only lasted 6 episodes before they headed to TEN with Roving Enterprises, building their brand together with a hit radio show.
Their Gap Year series was a hit for Nine, coming with a hefty pricetag (which included production costs) but has concluded, but it isn’t clear if they will continue the format.
“We’ve done some research on Africa and the Middle East. Both of them are touchy in regards to logistics and security. I wouldn’t say there was any chance this year, but we haven’t put our passports away,” they told TV Tonight last year.
Seven boss Tim Worner is known to be a big fan of the boys work, previously acknowledging he probably let the pair get away too quickly.
Both have been nominated for Gold Logies in the past, with Blake winning in 2012.
