The program will also feature Tanisha interviewing high-profile players, officials and coaches outside the studio, and a light-hearted segment called 'Rolling with Rose', where George will catch up with players while dropping them at training!

Over the Black Dot’s panellists will be joined by some of the best players and personalities in the game each week, as the series champions Indigenous achievement.

NITV Channel Manager, Tanya Orman said, “NITV has a strong history in covering rugby league, from remote ‘Island of Origin’ in the Torres Strait to the massive Koori Knockouts. With so many Indigenous players in the NRL we can guarantee our new show will deliver exactly what our audiences have asked for in league analysis and discussion.”

Head of Sport for NITV, Mark Ella said, “Rugby league plays an important role in Indigenous communities and we are excited to again have a program on NITV which focuses on all levels of the game, for a country who loves the sport.”

Over the Black Dot will premiere on Wednesday 12 April at 9.30pm on NITV Ch. 34
