Brace yourself, Australia. The Shire premieres on Network Ten next week and it’s promising to be as Jersey Shore and The Only Way Is Essex as we expected it to be. Our first look at the cast introduced us to sun-kissed blondes and tattooed guys, but scattered promos throughout the week have also given us a look at bronzed brunettes who prefer to look fake than natural and aspiring hip-hop stars. Will Ten’s “dramality” series be a success? Time will tell if audiences engage with the models, surfies, entrepreneurs and girls-next-door of the Sutherland Shire. Until the show’s debut, get up to speed with what we know about The Shire so far . . .
The Shire premieres on Monday, July 16 at 8 p.m. on Network Ten.
