TV show, no bull

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS - SAM SMALL­BONE

WILD brumbies, ATVs and he­li­copters had vis­i­tors on the edge of their seats at the Aus­tralian Muster Ex­pe­ri­ence on Fri­day to launch a new TV se­ries be­ing filmed on the prop­erty.

AME owner Gor­don Pringle an­nounced that there are three ma­jor pro­duc­tions be­ing filmed on his prop­er­ties at Rocky Point, Mount Mul­li­gan and Dain­tree Sta­tion - but he re­mains tight-lipped if Oprah is among them.

“There was film­ing at Rocky Point last week for a small seg­ment, they have filmed wild horses on the beach for the new TV se­ries that young ac­tor Jeff O’Con­nor will be in­volved in,” he said.

Jeff O’Con­nor, from the TV se­ries Keep­ing up with the Jone­ses, made an ap­pear­ance at the Gor­don’s new AME show last Fri­day and was filmed rid­ing a bull out into the arena as a seg­ment for the “se­cret” new TV se­ries.

“Jeff has been stay­ing at the Mount Mul­li­gan sta­tion with his mates and crew who are do­ing some lo­cal film­ing, rid­ing a few horses and catch­ing a few bulls,” Mr Pringle said.

Small seg­ments through­out Gor­don’s new show have been filmed for the new TV se­ries in­clud­ing im­ages of wild horses run­ning across the pad­docks.

Ac­cord­ing to Mr Pringle, Fri­day’s run-through of the new show is be­ing taken to high­light the dra­matic se­ries of events in re­la­tion to mus­ter­ing that have been re­cently filmed how­ever he can­not re­veal spe­cific de­tail about any of the films and tele­vi­sion se­ries un­der pro­duc­tion.

Ac­cord­ing to Mr Pringle he has been mis­rep­re­sented in other me­dia about the spec­u­la­tion of Oprah be­ing filmed on his prop­er­ties and can­not re­veal spe­cific de­tail about any of the films and tele­vi­sion se­ries un­der pro­duc­tion.

“I re­ally can’t com­ment on other pro­duc­tions at this stage but there is a far bit of ac­tion and high end pro­duc­ers com­ing to the re­gion, some are al­ready here and some in the fu­ture,” he said.
