Indigenous drama Redfern Now has received funding for a second season, it was announced yesterday by Screen Australia.

Writers will again work with Jimmy McGovern.

Season one airs Thursdays at 8.30pm on ABC1.

Over at Foxtel, the A&E channel has commissioned the 10-part series Aussie Pickers, in which two "pickers" hit the back roads and barnyards of Australia, earning a living by restoring forgotten relics to their former glory.

Foxtel has also given the green light to The Real Housewives of Australia, to air next year on Arena.

The series focuses on the extravagant lives of five of Australia's most privileged and glamorous women.
