The Age has reported that Channel Seven is developing a true-crime drama about Melbourne’s criminal underworld.
The project, tentatively titled Killing Time, will be based on a book by Melbourne criminal lawyer Andrew Fraser, Court in the Middle: A True Story of Cocaine, Police, Corruption and Prison.
It deals with Fraser’s fall from grace and his time defending such high-profile clients as Jason Moran, Lewis Moran and Victor Pierce.
Fraser was a high profile Melbourne based lawyer imprisoned in 2001 for being knowingly concerned with the importation of a commercial quantity of cocaine. In 2007, he gave an interview on Enough Rope.
TV Tonight hears Jason Stephens (The King) is producing the prime time series for FremantleMedia Australia with Ian David (Blue Murder) on board as writer.
