It will play at 8:30pm Sunday February 9 and 16. Downton Abbey is tipped to begin a week later.
“The appeal of INXS, apart from loving the music and being a fan myself, is … when you drill down into it … it’s a really good underdog story. These guys started in a garage and really did take on the world.,” Head of Production Brad Lyons told News Corp.
“When you look back on it, you forget how big they really were and you learn so much about how hard they worked, how some of the guys didn’t really like being on the road, how the music was everything and then fame came into it … it’s just a rollicking good yarn.”
It stars Luke Arnold, Alex Williams, Hugh Sheridan, Ido Drent, Andrew Ryan, Nicholas Masters, Damon Herriman, Jane Harber and Samantha Jade.
But it will be a double dose of Aussie drama with INXS going head to head with the return of Rake.
TEN has Winter Olympics and Nine will reveal its hand later today.
