Frock show: <i>Home and Away</i> stars get new reality TV series
Network Seven

Ready for more reality television? Seven Network are banking on a "yes", after announcing a new TV series, Formal Wars, hosted by Home and Away alumni Rhiannon Fish and Samara Weaving.

The series, which is surely going to play up teen-girl body anxieties across the nation, centres on parents picking their daughters' formal attire. Naturally, conflicts will arise from less-fashionable seniors taking charge.

Formal Wars hopes to put a new spin on the events-and-frocks-obsessed television bracket. The potential for ad revenue is obvious, with a booming $3 billion events market in Seven's crosshairs.

"The school formal is rapidly becoming the biggest day in a teenager's life, so the reactions when we tell them their parents are in control have been priceless," explains Brad Lyons, Seven's head of production.

We can already see the tears and tantrums. Excellent.

Will you be tuning in? Or have you had your fill of frock-shows?
