Makers of Underbelly Tackle Terrorism with False Witness

The Australian true crime series, Underbelly (cast featured at left), which I wrote about in BOTS this past February, turned out to be a major hit Down Under. The true story of Carl Williams and Australian mafioso was a major ratings hit and has spurred its creators on to try their hand in the true crime world again.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, a new two-part miniseries, False Witness, has been commissioned by Nine network and will be be produced by the Underbelly team, a production company called Screentime. Not much information has been released about False Witness other than it is based on fact and it involves international terrorism.

Now, if I could actually get to see Underbelly I would be a happy man.
