Nine is to bring you the telemovie on Beaconsfield. I can tell you what happens, they survive :lol:

TV Tonight wrote:Beaconsfield telemovie for Nine

A telemovie on the Beaconsfield mining disasterwill be produced for the Nine Network.

The telemovie is one of six projects to receive funding from Film Victoria last week.

It will be produced by the prolific John Edwards (Rush, Tangle, Offspring, Spirited all of which have new seasons due) and written by screenwriter Judi McCrossin (The Surgeon, Tangle). Edwards is also developing a 2 part telemovie on the early days of Cleo for the ABC.

It will tell the story of Todd Russell and Brant Webb who were trapped in the mine shaft for 15 days and nights. Both signed deals with Nine following their rescue.

The story also follows the women left behind, the fight and dedication of the rescue teams.

The confirmation follows speculation in May 2009 that the project was in the works with names such as Eric Bana and Shane Jacobson on the rumour mill.

“The Beaconsfield project will be a high profile television feature for Southern Star Entertainment in 2011,” said Victoria’s new Innovation, Services and Small Business Minister Louise Asher.

This could possibly rate through the roof, especially considering that it's done by John Edwards. It could potentially be better than the Underbelly telemovies. This makes for five telemovies from Nine next year, compared with one from this year (Wicked Love).

Will 9 show that Mel and Kochie from 7, amongst others, were also there mineside :?: Probably not, but why let facts get in the way of a good story.

EDIT: Corrected spelling

I thought that was John Edwards as in Crossing Over! That might have got me watching.
