It seems a bit of actual reality hit home on the new season of Farmer Wants A Wife that couldn’t have been predicted.
Seven Network Director of Programming Angus Ross recently sat down with TV Tonight when he confirmed a more back-to-basics approach to the show, which has found new life at the network after a 9-year run with Channel Nine which ended in 2016.
“We really feel that this is a show with its heart in the right place. It is authentically looking for love,” Ross said.
“With some of our series in the past that were perhaps, lacking some of that authenticity, they didn’t turn out as we’d hoped. So we’re really going back to basics with this one.”
Speaking of authenticity, Seven has factored the drought crisis in to some of Farmer’s storylines.
“We were literally there on one property when the drought broke,” Ross said.
“And I don’t just mean with the arrival of the female participants. It actually started raining!”
