Devil's Dust - New ABC Mini-series
A two-part mini-series about the James Hardie asbestos tragedy went into production on March 19, 2012 for the ABC.
Devil’s Dust is described as an “intensely personal story of three very different men whose lives and careers are bound together by a tragedy that becomes a scandal, and then a fast-moving battle through the corridors of corporate, political and media power. At the heart of the story are the 60,000 Australians likely to die of asbestos disease by 2030. ”The mini-series is based on the book Killer Company by ABC journalist Matt Peacock.
ABC TV Head of Fiction, Carole Sklan said: “This is a powerful, inspiring drama which has attracted an outstanding cast and creative team. ABC TV is proud to present the human story at the heart of this on-going national tragedy.”
