With production on the eight 30-minute episode series beginning this week, "everyone from journalists to political fixers is perpetually at risk of spinning out of control."
"I just can't wait to get my hands on the ABC credit card again," said Executive Producer Julian Morrow. "When it comes to dodgy uses of other people's money, Craig Thomson's got nothing on The Chaser team."
Asked about the Chaser team's return to ABC TV, Managing Director Mark Scott said, "This is the most humble day of my life."
When told about the title for the new show, Kim Dalton, Director of ABC TV said, "The Hamster Wheel? Peddling fast and getting nowhere. Very apt for The Chaser. When does the final episode go to air?"
The Hamster Wheel premieres 9:35pm Wednesday October 5 on ABC1.
