HD Heads-Up: June 6 – 12

➢➢ Two new local lifestyle series will air on Saturday nights from June 6: A New Zealand Food Story (Three, 5.30) and Dream Home Dilemma (Prime, 8.00). In the former, chef Ben Bayly travels the country to seek inspiration for the menu at his new New Zealand cuisine restaurant while wrestling setbacks, like a global pandemic, to get it built on time; the latter teams Shane Cortese, Anita Dobson and Hamish Todd (above) to help people find their dream home (including, in the season finale, rugby great Sir John Kirwan) …

➢➢ In a likely sign of the impact COVID-19 production delays are having on broadcast schedules around the world, TVNZ 1 is belatedly picking up Bodyguard (8.30 Mondays from June 5), the overrated thriller that dominated the headlines when it aired on the BBC two years ago and streamed here on Netflix a month later …

➢➢ Surprisingly, a spin-off from a UK series that used to air on TVNZ 1, One Born Every Minute Australia, will premiere on TVNZ 2 (8.40 Mondays from June 8). Sydney’s Westmead Hospital’s birth unit was fitted out with 60 remotely-operated cameras to film for 24/7 over eight weeks …

➢➢ Fair Go will resume its 7.30 Monday slot on June 8, pushing Bradley Walsh And Son: Breaking Dad back to 8.00, while returning for new seasons the same week will be Flirty Dancing (Three, 4.25 Saturdays), Dinner Date (TVNZ 1, 9.45 Saturdays), Storage Wars (Prime, 7.00 Sundays) and Station 19 (9.35 Tuesdays) …

➢➢ Ending their runs that week will be All Gardens Great And Small, Griff’s Great Australian Rail Trip, The Great British Bake OffUnbreakable, Ray Winstone’s Sicily and The British Tribe Next Door
