Can't help but hope that this trend bodes well for Peter's career here.

It's crunch time for TV studios' business affairs departments, but this year it seems as if they're spending as much time preparing work visas for the shows' stars as they do closing deals for new series.

A few names I'm happy to see listed: Miranda Otto and Jack Davenport! Both have TV series. Miranda in 'Cashmere Mafia' and Jack in 'Swingtown'.
