Underground: The Julian Assange Story: trailer

By David Knox on September 5, 2012 / Filed Under News 19

TEN has released a trailer for its upcoming telemovie Underground: The Julian Assange Story.

TEN has had a very rough ride lately, but I’m really looking forward to this one.

The telemovie will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September, which is a rare treat for TV content.

    They should call it. “Drama Queen. The most overrated story of 2012.

    @Trix, no doubt I’ll be able to get it on BluRay in a couple of months, so I can watch it ad free, in HD, and give my money to the creators.

    The joy of Gen Y, we have no loyalty. We won’t put up with something because it’s always been like that.

    This is why the ‘young’ skewing TEN has shows rating at SBS levels. Mad as hell and not gonna take it anymore ;)

    @Josh S. If a show is good, who cares what channel airs it?

    @Josh S, the only problem with switching off because it’s the network you’re annoyed with is that the creators of the program are punished too.

    I am looking forward to this too. What’s with people wanting to punish Channel 10? All the stations have served up some very poor programmes. If it’s good and people actually watch it would it not be an incentive for 10 to keep showing quality programmes.

    @JoshS sadly I have to agree with you if puberty blues was on another network it would almost definatly be rating probably double same goes for can of worms because theese great shows are on ten they are not rating

    To be perfectly honest, TEN don’t deserve to do well after the crappy year they have put up to us viewers but because of the strength of it and how fantastic its going to be, i hope it does well for them. Really looking forward to this one

    This looks awesome!

    Hopefully it airs before my exams start! D:

    Sydney2K, I have no doubt that it will bve absolutely fantastic, but there is no way I am letting TEN get ratings for it (as someone with a ratings box, I have that power :D).

    There is only so much a station can do before their brand is irrevocably broken. TEN is at that point. Whatever Underground rates, you can easily double the figure if it was on Seven.

    Look at Puberty Blues, highly regarded, well received, rating in the toilet because of the network.

    This could be interesting. I’ve been watching the different news coverages on the saga but most miss most of the facts and it was once again 4 Corners that set the record strait in my mind.

    Guess this will air on a Sunday later in the year.

  11. The Moops September 5, 2012 at 6:25 pm -

    Yep, really looking forward to this one.

    Ahh it’s like Underbelly for the so called “defenders of freedom”. No thanks.

  13. Sydney2K September 5, 2012 at 5:59 pm -

    What is your problem Josh S? How about some respect for what is shaping up to be an outstanding drama?

  14. kats September 5, 2012 at 5:32 pm -

    I’ve got to agree with you David,this is one I’m really looking forward to as well.Can’t wait.

    Cannot wait for this – and agree – now it has screened at a major film festival it cannot be held back for long. It would probably win a Sunday night as appointment viewing and restore a bit of stability to Ten – particularly with advertisers.

    Looks fantastic! You couldn’t make up a more interesting story

    Ten have bombed out on every reality series produced this year but their original drama slate has been fantastic (was lukewarm on Bike Wars..).

  17. Steve September 5, 2012 at 4:45 pm -

    It looks really good. Really keen.

  18. LCDtv September 5, 2012 at 4:41 pm -

    Promos for this so far have been very strong. Forget Underbelly and Kerry Packer on Nine.. this looks great.

  19. JoshS September 5, 2012 at 4:39 pm -

    Watch on TEN or get another way…?

    Sorry TEN, you’ve had your chances, now you must burn.

    They must no be rewarded with viewers after their year of contempt towards us.
