Untold Story of INXS Film Planned

12/20/2012
.
Shine Australia and Seven will begin the filming for the new TV mini-series "Never Tear Us Apart: The Untold Story of INXS" in Melbourne in 2013. We were sent these details:

"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. It will trace 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.

Executive Produced by Mark Fennessy and Rory Callaghan with CM Murphy, the band's highly talented manager as Co-Executive Producer, "Never Tear Us Apart: The Untold Story of INXS" will have full access to the INXS archive of music, photography and stories. Aside from the drama and appearances by actors playing Kylie Minogue, Helena Christensen, Bono and Paula Yates, the remarkable music of INXS will be at the heart of the series. From raw beginnings on the northern beaches of Sydney to 100,000 fans at Rock in Rio and the tragic news of Michael Hutchence's death in 1997, "Never Tear Us Apart: The Untold Story of INXS" will relive some of INXS's most seminal moments. And the viewer will be front row centre.

Mark Fennessy said: "This is a truly special project for us. There is no doubt the life of INXS is a compelling and extraordinary one and together with our partners Seven Network, Screen Australia plus contributions from Chris and the band we will tell the real story - true to the phenomenon, to the era and of course to INXS with all the very best and very worst moments. It will be an emotional, uplifting, must see television event for INXS fans and the Australian public alike"

CM Murphy said: "The world has been begging for this story to be told for decades, so to be able to work again with my friends Brad Lyons at Seven and Shine's Mark Fennessy, gives me great comfort - knowing only the highest quality will hit the screens. Like with all things INXS, I look forward to creating television history - it is going to be a wild and exciting ride!"

Tim Farriss said: "People have been talking about the lives and times of INXS constantly for years, often getting the facts wrong, speculating on various issues and asking for TV and film rights. It seems that, finally, good people who we trust to do us justice and actually involve us in the project will finally happen. So we are very excited, proud and to be honest a little nervous about helping with a truly fascinating story about our band INXS. We have always felt there is so much to tell about the life and times of INXS that if this were to happen, it should be an accurate portrayal of the 'facts'. It certainly will evoke every emotion to all involved, from 'us to the viewer'. Although it may be a hard thing to watch for some of us, I can't wait!"

Brad Lyons, Director of Network Production, Seven said: "Few Aussie bands have touched music fans around the world like INXS. Their massive success at home and abroad is a truly great Australian story worth telling and worth celebrating. This is a remarkable chapter in our music history and Seven is thrilled to be bringing the real story to Australian homes."

Richard Manners, Managing Director, Warner/Chappell UK said: "INXS are one of the finest rock bands that Australia has ever produced. I am delighted that Warner/Chappell is trusted by the INXS team to represent not only their songs but also their master synch rights, and it has been a pleasure to work with Chris and their management team in the process of transforming a band into a brand. The upcoming TV mini-series is an exciting way to celebrate INXS's remarkable body of work and demonstrates the innovative and dynamic opportunities we create for our outstanding songwriters and their exceptional music. 2013 will be the year of INXS, without a doubt."
