Screentime is tipped to be close to be announcing a new Drama project that centres around drug king Tony Mokbel, who was famously arrested in Greece before being extradited to Australia and sentenced to 30 years imprisonment for running a drug trafficking empire.
Screentime has previously included a character in its first Underbelly season played by Robert Mammone, but it led to episodes being banned in Victoria ahead of court proceedings.
Nine already has Underbelly: Squizzy coming in 2013 so it isn’t known whether a Mokbel saga would comprise a full series or another in the Underbelly Files telemovies.
TV Tonight was previously the first media to report on Underbelly: Razor and Underbelly: Squizzy.
If the Mokbel drama comes to pass, you heard it here first….!
