TV2 Announces The Towns Chosen To Compete In Top Town
TV2 is proud to announce the 15 towns selected to compete for the title of New Zealand's Top Town.
The towns were selected from more than 35 applicants and were determined by the quality of their applications and the geographical spread across the country.
Christchurch has been chosen as the host city where all the competition will be held.
The successful towns competing in next year's Top Town are: Ashburton, Gisborne, Gore, Greymouth, Masterton, Motueka, Oamaru, Otorohanga, Papakura, Queenstown, Taupo, Timaru, Whakatane, Whangarei and the host city Christchurch.
Jeff Latch, TVNZ's Head of Television says that the network is delighted to be bringing back the popular and much loved hit show.
"We have been asked for years to bring back Top Town and we think that now is a great time to modernise the show which was so entertaining for families for much of the 70s through to the mid 90s," says Latch.
"This is not a retro remake of the old format. This time it's more water and mud challenges than stubbies and marching girls but we anticipate just as much entertainment and of course town pride and rivalry," he says.
The host of Top Town will be announced later in the year.
