Paul Holmes Vs Mike Hosking? - Out Of The Question?

Prime Television is delighted to announce its new half-hour current affairs quiz show, Out of The Question. This fresh, feisty and topical debate will feature teams led by Mike Hosking and Paul Holmes and will screen on the network later this year.

Out of The Question, funded by NZ On Air, will see Prime Television team up with Julie Christie?s highly successful production company, Touchdown Television, for the first time. ?We have been exploring opportunities to work with Julie and her team for some time and feel that Out of the Question is a great starting point for the relationship?, said Programming Manager Andrew Shaw.

In his return to broadcast television, Mike Hosking will challenge Paul Holmes in cutting edge conversation, taking viewers on an intellectual journey through the issues facing New Zealand.

Out of The Question seeks to raise the quality of political and current affairs debate in this country. The twenty half-hour debates will be controversial, provocative and highly entertaining.
