Shane Warne’s life is turned into a new miniseries.
The cricketing legend died suddenly aged 52 earlier this month while on holiday in Thailand, and now his incredible life and career is set to be dramatized for an upcoming TV show.
Australian company Nine Entertainment Co is in the early stages of setting up a production company, with the program due to air in 2023.
Andy Ryan, the broadcaster’s head of drama, said: “Warnie’s life was so full of drama, like the man himself.
“This miniseries will be larger than life – entertaining, confronting, thought-provoking. We want to explore what made Warnie so special and why he had such a powerful effect on people.
“He was a sports legend, a national treasure, a kind of international icon, but he was also a larrikin, a thief and a charmer and a flawed man.
“The national outpouring of grief over his passing showed us – if we needed to say it – how much of an impact he had on the national conversation.”
