Where to now?Comedian Tim Ferguson's TV future is up in the air again with the word that Channel 9 has canned the piolt for his new show, Girl Friday. Executive producer Peter Wynne said he's disappointed because the pilot appealed to a youth audience, which Nine is keen to chase, and concepts for this type of show aren't easy to develop. "They just don't grow on trees," he said, adding that Girl Friday was some of the best TV he'd seen in recent years.
He's also concerned that Ferguson has been out of TV for two years, since Don't Forget your Tootbrush ended. "Tim's disappointed but philosophical," he said. "We'll just have to come up with some new ideas."
