Back in 2018, 85 MCTV members worked on Australian Gangster, directed by Gregor Jordan (Two Hands). Tonight, after lengthy delays caused by legal action, we finally get to see it! Australian Gangster will premier on Seven and 7Plus at 9.07pm.
The two 90 minute episode drama, which is inspired by true events, takes us into Sydney’s world of crime and gangland wars. More specifically, events surrounding the murder of “Instagangster” Pasquale Barbaro in 2016. As reported in the Sydney Morning Herald, only now, with Barbaro’s killers behind bars, is it safe to put it to air.
Channel 7 describes the series as a wild tale of ruthless ambition and revenge, set within the Sydney underworld, where gangsters and the Instagram generation collide with Sydney’s glamorous social elite.
If you can’t wait till tonight, some great BTS videos, including some footage of lead actor Alexander Bertrand being made up with fake tattoos for the role, can be found here. Congratulations to everyone involved in this long awaited project.
