New Zealand's Got Talent will start screening on Sunday nights in September.
The largest entertainment production undertaken by TV ONE in a decade will start at 7:30, followed by a second series of local drama Nothing Trivial .
International supermodel Rachel Hunter will be joined by UB40 lead singer Ali Campbell and OpShop front man Jason Kerrison on the Kiwi version of the show that launched the career of British singer Susan Boyle.
Head of TV ONE and TV2, Jeff Latch, says the primetime programme schedule has something for everyone, and it's all local.
"News and Current Affairs is consolidated in the early part of the evening, family entertainment follows, and the drama Nothing Trivial, which performed so well in its first series, is expected to draw excellent viewership," he says.
"We feel this is the kind of Sunday night people will go out of their way to watch."
More than 5000 acts have already auditioned to take part in the New Zealand's Got Talent heats which will be filmed in Dunedin, Wellington and Auckland in front of live audiences and the judging panel.
