Chart-topping singer and 2012 X Factor winner, Samantha Jade, will make her screen debut as Kylie Minogue.
Joining Jade in the portrayal of the key women in the story of INXS are Georgina Haig (Fringe, The Elephant Princess) as Paula Yates and Mallory Jansen (Howzat! Kerry Packer’s War) as Helena Christensen.
This major, two-part television event is being Executive Produced by Mark Fennessy and Rory Callaghan, with INXS’s manager CM Murphy as Co-Executive Producer.
Promising an authentic behind-the-scenes look beyond the music, Never Tear Us Apart: The Untold Story of INXS will tell the band’s extraordinary and uncensored story, with full access to their archive of music, photography and stories.
Never Tear Us Apart: The Untold Story of INXS is now in production in Melbourne.
“Never Tear Us Apart: The Untold Story of INXS” will concentrate on the six members of the band and the artistic and emotional relationship at the heart of INXS, that of Michael Hutchence and Andrew Farriss. The two part drama traces their incredible rise to the top of the international charts – ten albums, thousands of concerts, the unforgettable headline show at Wembley Stadium and the bitter aftermath of dealing with the loss of Michael Hutchence.
It promises an authentic, behind the scenes look at what really happened – childhood mates from Sydney who were once the biggest rock and roll band in the world – beyond the music, the lights and the roar of a sell-out crowd.
“Never Tear Us Apart: The Untold Story of INXS” will air nationally on Channel 7 although there is no date confirmed yet.
