New TV1 miniseries Killing Time will finally hit Australian television screens at 8:30pm on November 2nd in a double episode.
The controversial series was originally slated to debut on TV1 in 2010, but due to proceedings in the Supreme Court of Victoria it was delayed by a year.
TV1 will now screen episodes 1-6 with the next 4 episodes tipped for sometime in 2012 due to ongoing court matters.
A new trailer is also on show at www.killingtime.com.au
Killing Time is a hard hitting powerful drama, inspired by the story of fallen former criminal lawyer Andrew Fraser played by highly respected actor David Wenham. In his high-flying days, Fraser seemed untouchable as he represented the famous and notorious, including Dennis Allen, Jimmy Krakouer and Alan Bond.
Wenham is mesmerising as the cocky lawyer who made a fortune out of the Melbourne underworld and eventually joined them when cocaine starts to take over his life.
David Wenham said: “It has been said that the life of Andrew Fraser is like a John Grisham novel. Only real! Killing Time was an opportunity for me to work with some of my favourite actors: Colin Friels, Kris McQuade, Terry Norris, Diana Glenn, Kerry Walker, John Brumpton and some actors that I hadn’t previously worked with: Kate Jenkinson, Malcolm Kennard and Richard Cawthorne among others.
“The performances of all these actors are terrific and working with them was the highlight of the series for me. I congratulate TV1 for having a genuine interest in and supporting quality Australian drama.”
