Star World launches new programmes and specials

It is not only the top three channels that are launching new programmes and one off shows - one after the other. English channels have also taken a leaf out of their book, and are launching a series of new shows.

Following the same strategy, Star World has three new programmes lined up - one a serial, and other two - one off specials.

The serial Dark Angel would premier on Thursday, 3 October, and will be aired every Thursday evening at 6.30 and 10 pm. The science-fiction adventure series set in near future, is created by Academy Award-winner James Cameron (director of Titanic and The Terminator).

When Cameras Cross the Line, a one off special, would be aired on Star World on Thursday, 3 October, 7:30 p.m. & 11 p.m. It is based on the ongoing battle between rich and famous celebrities and the paparazzi that help make them - and break them. Along with exclusive interviews with Michael Douglas, Julia Roberts, Kathie Lee Gifford, Woody Harrelson, Marie Osmond and many more, one will witness Tom Hanks, Sharon Stone, Shannen Doherty and Tommy Lee trying to get rid of paparazzi!

Lastly, BON JOVI: ONE LAST WILD NIGHT (a concert filmed at Giant's Stadium), would be aired on Tuesday, 1 October at 5:30 p.m. & 9 p.m. In conjunction with this musical event, STAR World is also running a contest and the viewers would get a chance to see Bon Jovi perform live in concert in Australia.
