Writer/producer and interviewer Angela Pulvirenti has just launched a new entertainment/interview series on 10 called At The Cellar.
Pulvirenti chats with celebrities from around the world over a tasting of their favourite wines, which is filmed at Dan Murphy’s Prahran cellar and features live unplugged musical performances.
Guests in the current series include sporting superstars Mick Fanning, Joel Parkinson, Johnathan Thurston, Shane Watson and music artists Angus and Julia Stone, Tina Arena, Kate Miller-Heidke and Chris Isaak.
The musical guests always close the show with a unique live performance.
The episodes are already available on 10 Play ahead of their screening on 10’s primary channel beginning Friday and Saturday December 7 and 8 at 10.30pm.
Pulvirenti also has produced a food and wine special with Adam Liaw and Tobie Puttock.
Pulvirenti created and produced the series independently and attracted a major sponsor to the series in Dan Murphy’s.
Pulvirenti told Mediaweek: “The wine bug caught me about 10 years ago. I became quite enchanted by the whole process of wine making and have since become quite an avid collector.”
Formerly a columnist and feature writer for Sunday magazine and the Herald Sun, Pulvirenti later wrote, produced and hosted the entertainment interview program Backstage Pass for the Nine Network from 2004 to 2007.
She later packaged the sports interview program Inside Edge for ABC News 24 and ABC local radio from 2009 to 2013.
More recently she produced and hosted The Truth About Us for Foxtel’s Bio channel and ABC radio which featured guests ranging from Russell Crowe and Guy Pearce to Jimmy Barnes and Michael Gudinski.
