Offspring first on tenplay

In exciting news for fans of Offspring its fifth season will premiere on Network Ten’s tenplay before its television broadcast. On Tuesday, May 6, the first episode of season 5 will be made available exclusively to tenplay members for a limited time only. The episode will not be available to view after 48 hours or after 20,000 views.

This strategy is similar to Nine’s when they premiered Love Child to a first-in, best dressed audience on ninemsn, ahead of the broadcast on Nine. Network Ten has previously made Homeland available online ahead of its television broadcast.

Speaking about Offspring’s new season, Network Ten Head of Drama, Rick Maier, said:

Last year left us asking how could Nina ever recover from losing Patrick. Six months later, and the answers come in surprising ways as the Proudmans rally as only they know how.

This year Offspring manages to achieve the seemingly impossible: if television can ever make us question the big stuff while remaining life-affirming, crazy and joyful, then this is the series to do it. Baby steps Nina, baby steps.

If you miss out online, Season 5 of Offspring will premiere on Network Ten on Wednesday, 14 May at 8:30pm.
