FremantleMedia Australia is developing a new drama series around the James Hardie asbestos saga.
The saga of the building materials company saw it at the centre of a landmakrk with campaigner Bernie Banton (pictured) becoming the public face of the David v Goliath battle. He died in 2007.
An ABC spokeswoman said the project was “in development at this stage and is yet to be commissioned”.
Meanwhile, FremantleMedia’s other new drama series, TV1’s Killing Time which has been pushed back to 2011 due to legal process, has also been approved to a second season.
