A Rush job

Herald Sun - Switched On - - News - BRIAN BUCHANAN

Rstar Ashley Zuk­er­man has made a quick re­cov­ery from in­jury. Zuk­er­man, who plays Michael San­drelli in the Chan­nel 10 po­lice drama, was lucky to es­cape se­ri­ous harm af­ter be­ing knocked off his bike by a ce­ment truck in early March. His bike went un­der the heavy ve­hi­cle, but the ac­tor man­aged to roll out of the truck’s way.

Zuk­er­man sus­tained bruis­ing and other mi­nor in­juries and was mov­ing gin­gerly when he re­turned to set.

Zuk­er­man, how­ever, would not let the mishap get in the way of a light­ning trip to Cannes with co-star Rodger Corser.

Corser and Zuk­er­man flew into France last week­end and were gone by Tues­day — just enough time to pro­mote the show at the MIPCOM en­ter­tain­ment mar­ket— so they could re­sume film­ing on the sec­ond sea­son of the crime drama.

Be­fore leav­ing Cannes, the boys said the mo­ment they touched down in Mel­bourne they’d be jump­ing into a car and head­ing up the Calder High­way for film­ing in Bendigo.

Corser says the quick trip to Cannes was good for him and the show be­cause of its huge in­ter­na­tional sales po­ten­tial.

‘‘It’s now go­ing to 50 ter­ri­to­ries in­ter­na­tion­ally,’’ Corser says.

Ten is yet to an­nounce a date for the sec­ond-sea­son pre­miere of but the show is ex­pected to be moved from its orig­i­nal 9.30pm times­lot to 8.30pm.

For­mer reg­u­lar Jo­lene An­der­son is an ad­di­tion to the cast as cop Shan­non Henry.
