Happy New Year! Welcome to 2008! I found some info online about Packed to the Rafters. This comes from a media release dated December 6, 2007:
Seven’s Director Of Programming and Production Tim Worner said today:
“There is no better time to launch a show on Seven than right now. We’ve generated incredible momentum in 2007 and our aim in 2008 is to keep it rolling.
“We see our victory this year as just the start of something and we’re now setting about making it something special. These are only the shows we’re prepared to announce now and there will be more Australian productions in 2008.
“It’s especially thrilling to give the green light to Packed To The Rafters. It’s a wonderful premise with some great scripts. Australian drama is woven into the fabric of Seven and we aim to continue to deliver really good Australian stories really well told.”
PACKED TO THE RAFTERS:
Meet Dave and Julie Rafter (Erik Thomson and Rebecca Gibney) – just your average Australians with three grown-up children. On the eve of their twenty-fifth wedding-anniversary it seems they’re at last about to have the house to themselves. Offspring Rachel, Ben and Nathan (played by newcomers Jessica Marais, Hugh Sheridan and Angus McLaren) have all developed into well-rounded and out-going, if exceptionally different and complex, individuals, with a raft of their own conflicts and dilemmas. But home can seem a very welcome refuge when unforeseen problems loom.
