The Nine Network has confirmed the remaining five episodes of True Story with Hamish & Andy will air from Tuesday, August 1, at 8.40pm.
It’s an interesting move from Nine to push the highly successful family friendly series back to the later timeslot, with the show now airing after The Block.
Each of the first five episodes has been watched by more than 2.2 million viewers (including encore screenings), making True Story one of the most talked about programs in recent years.
In each half-hour episode, Hamish and Andy meet one regular Australian storyteller who recounts their amazing, surprising, funny and above all true story, which is simultaneously recreated by a cast of Australia’s most renowned performers.
In Episode Six we meet Tracy (played by Kat Stewart), an experienced hotelier, renowned for managing high-class luxury hotels and super-rich clientele. For nine years Tracy was the general manager of an exclusive five-star resort in Bali, where she was not only boss but also mother figure to her 200+ Balinese staff.
While Tracy is running this resort a wealthy American couple arrive for their private wedding. But what is meant to be the most special day of their lives turns out to be the most memorable for all the wrong reasons. And it’s Tracy who is left to clean up a very expensive mess.
Also starring in this episode are Sam Pang, David Roberts, Heidi Arena, John Batchelor, Dave Lawson and TJ Power.
