ABC’s Easybeats miniseries Friday On My Mind will screen across 2 Sundays from late November.
The Playmaker Media drama stars Ashley Zukerman as record producer Ted Albert and relative newcomers who comprise the band: Christian Byers as Stevie Wright, Will Rush as George Young, Mackenzie Fearnley as Harry Vanda, Du Toit Bredenkamp as Dick Diamonde and Arthur McBain as Snowy Fleet.
It will screen as part of ABC’s AusMusic Month.
This landmark two-part mini-series that tells the story of five young newly-arrived immigrants who met in Sydney migrant hostel Villawood in the Sixties and went on to form Australia’s first truly international rock group, The Easybeats, taking our rock’n’roll sound to the world.
Friday On My Mind is more than a classic rags-to-riches tale. It is a story of identity, re-invention and belonging with a powerful contemporary relevance – and one heck of a soundtrack!
8.40pm on Sunday 26 November and 3 December on ABC.
