Cameras roll on Underbelly: Squizzy

Filming begins this week on Underbelly: Squizzy the next instalment in Nine’s true crime franchise.

As first revealed by TV Tonight, the 2013 series spans 1915 to 1927 Melbourne.

In the title role of gangster Squizzy Taylor is 22 year old Jared Daperis (Halifax FP, Stingers, Small Time Gangster, The Cup).

In Underbelly: Razor, the role was originally created by actor Justin Rosniak.

The cast also includes Susie Porter, as matriarch “Rosie Taylor”, alongside Luke Ford, Dan Wyllie, Nathan Page, Richard Cawthorne, Ashley Zukerman, Matt Boesenberg, Diana Glenn, Ken Radley, Andrew Ryan, Fletcher Humphrys and Peter Moon, with Camille Keenan, Elise Jansen and Gracie Gilbert.

Writing are Felicity Packard, Jeff Truman and Peter Gawler, joined by Adam Todd and Andy Muir.

Jo Rooney and Andy Ryan from the Nine Network said, “Nine is thrilled to bring the romantic and audacious life of Squizzy Taylor to the screen. As our first celebrity gangster, Squizzy Taylor captivated, charmed and scandalised the Australian public of 1915-27. We are confident Underbelly: Squizzy will have the same appeal in 2013.”

Executive Chairman of Screentime Des Monaghan said, “Squizzy loved women and they loved him which may explain why he became such a legendary figure and his story endures. He was to the 20th Century what Ned Kelly was to the 19th.”

The character has previously been depicted on screen by David Atkins in the 1982 film Squizzy.

with promotion of this show being as early as the first post above (on 24 September last year), and possibly even earlier other sites, this show is still yet to air. According to the ''tvtonight'' website, it will be airing within weeks. But that's the closest information I have seen on the web so far. The site indicates a Sunday schedule too (to fill the void of House Husbands)

Airdate: Underbelly: Squizzy

As tipped by TV Tonight, Underbelly: Squizzy begins on Nine at 8:30pm Sunday July 28.

While the network is yet to confirm it, the drama will follow the finale of The Block. Together with Big Brother the following night, this makes for a powerful combo on Nine.

Spanning the years 1915 to 1927, Underbelly: Squizzy will chronicle the exploits of Joseph Theodore Leslie Taylor, known to all as “Squizzy” – the vertically challenged crime tsar whose ego and ambition knew no boundaries.

With an unquenchable thirst for money and power, Squizzy also yearned for respect and fame and was not averse to betraying friends and followers who stood in his way. A master manipulator, he courted the press, entertained the masses with daring accounts of his criminal exploits and graduated from simple theft to loftier heists that gained him maximum media coverage, ultimately creating a public persona that made him the first superstar gangster of the 20th Century.

I quite like it, but my partner thinks it's badly put together. Easy watching as far as I'm concerned.

the show finished up on Sunday night with a double episode. With something like a 6+ month advertising blitz of this series, once it aired, there seemed like Nine under-performed and didn't advertise enough. Ratings were quite average this season.

Nine may need to reconsider its advertising tactics and actual content if ''Underbelly'' returns next year. Telemovies may be more than enough, rather than a series.
