N *oni Hazlehurst * * *is heading back to TV. The former Play School presenter and City Homicide actress has confirmed she will star in a new period drama series from *Bevan Lee *, the creator of Packed to the Rafters.

Hazlehurst, left, said yesterday she was about to start shooting the Seven series, A Place To Call Home, where she would play a very wealthy, and a tad controlling, matriarch.

"It will be fun. There's some terrific directors working on it and it's a period piece," Hazlehurst said.

"It's got a nice budget apparently and the network is going hard on this one, which is really good."
