Show Spotlight: Secret City: Under the Eagle, TV WEEK March 2-8, 2019

Tamara Cullen and I tag-teamed to introduce the second season of Foxtel series Secret City. I hard the pleasure of speaking to some if the show’s talented cast to make the show spotlight happen!


DWTS' Samuel Johnson, TV WEEK Feb 23-March 1, 2019

The first thing Samuel Johnson says when our call connects is, “Cynthia! Long time no speak!” He does so in a cheery, friendly voice, albeit a bit out of breath because he’s just been practicing for his Dancing With the Stars debut. Good luck to Sam, who works hard as an actor and a cancer awareness advocate.

Miracle Workers' Geraldine Viswanathan, Russian Doll, TV WEEK Feb 16-22, 2019

I got a chance to meet Australian comedian and actress Geraldine Viswanathan at Stan’s Sydney office to tee off our coverage of the comedy Miracle Workers. Then I binged all of Netflix’s Russian Doll and gave that five stars. Because you should go see it right now!


Eurovision—Australia Decides, TV WEEK Feb 9-15, 2019

While Tamara speaks to Joel Creasey about the first time Australia will pick its entrant for Eurovision, I got the scoop from Sheppard and Alfie Arcuri on their approaches to song-writing for the annual song contest.


Ryan Eggold chat for New Amsterdam, TV WEEK Feb 9-15, 2019

The last time I spoke with Ryan Eggold, he was still playing Tom Keen on The Blacklist. Now he’s a doc in New Amsterdam, a show that has been a hit in the US and has come to Australia. I also preview the Grammys, which is strange because I’m used to writing about it after the fact!


Rosehaven, Movies, TV WEEK Jan 26-Feb 1, 2019

A fun chat with Celia Pacquola and Luke McGregor kicks off Rosehaven’s third season coverage, and I got to write the Entertainment spread.

Ben Lawson, No Activity, TV WEEK Dec 1-7, 2018

Ben Lawson is a total charmer. May I interview him more often! Here is a chat pegged to his appearance in The Good Place. I also commissioned Dave Brown to do this comparison on No Activity US v Australian editions.
