Rachel Griffits to play Julia Gillard

Rachel Griffiths Julia Gillard WTFN TV Mini series
Aussie actress Rachel Griffiths is set to play former Australian prime minister Julia Gillard in WTFN's full length television drama. 

The project will be based on Fairfax political journalist Kerry-Anne Walsh's book "The Stalking of Julia Gillard: How the media and Team Rudd contrived to bring down the Prime Minister," which focuses on the "media's obsession with the fall and resurrection of [former prime minister] Kevin Rudd at Julia Gillard's expense”. 

Seasoned political drama producer Richard Keddie (Hawke, Curtin) will produce.

Keddie told TV Tonight:

“We’re the right people to make this because we know the political scene really well. We know how to make these kind of stories. 

“I know a lot about the true story of Julia Gillard and Kevin Rudd. For me it makes Hawke look like a ‘normal story.’ It’s absolutely amazing.” 

Whatever your political leanings, this is going to be an interesting project to watch out for.
