COMMERCIAL TELEVISION PRODUCTION FUND ANNOUNCES EIGHTH PROJECT

15 April 1996

A two-hour telemovie has been approved for funding by the Commercial Television Production Fund, the Chief Executive of the Fund, Chris Fitchett, announced today.
Good Guys, Bad Guys is a Beyond Simpson Le Mesurier production to be produced by Roger Simpson and Roger Le Mesurier, the team behind the highly successful drama series Halifax f.p. The executive producer is Mikael Borglund from the Beyond Group.
Marcus Graham will star as the reluctant hero Elvis Maginnis, an ex-police detective, who, with a weakness for inappropriate women and unlikely companions, would rather be left alone to run his dry cleaning franchise and pursue his obsessions than deal with the trouble that inevitably seeks him out - not infrequently in the guise of his family and their criminal connections.
Good Guys, Bad Guys has been written by Roger Simpson, and will go into production in June with Steve Jodrell directing. It will screen on the Nine Network in Australia with overseas sales to be handled by Beyond Distribution.
The Commercial Television Production Fund has now committed to five telemovies, two mini-series and one series. The Australian Film Commission is responsible for administration of the Fund, which assists the production of high quality Australian drama, children's drama and documentary programs to be screened on commercial television.
