NEW HISTORICAL MINI SERIES 'DEADLINE GALLIPOLI' ON THE FAMOUS WORLD WAR I BATTLE WITH SAM WORTHINGTON, HUGH DANCY, CHARLES DANCE, BRYAN BROWN, RACHEL GRIFFITHS!

DEADLINE GALLIPOLI
WWI HISTORICAL TV SERIES
The spy is bringing you some television updates today from the epic front focusing on the upcoming Australian historical mini series DEADLINE GALLIPOLI which has just rounded up its stellar cast and it has just started shooting as well. The World War I mini series will air sometime next year at Australian Foxtel and will probably be sold to other channels worldwide too. The main star of the mini series AVATAR's and CLASH OF THE TITAN's Sam Worthington is joined in the cast by HANNIBAL's Hugh Dancy, by Rachel Griffiths, Bryan Brown, Ewan Leslie, DRACULA's Jessica De Gouw, Anna Torv, John Bell, James Fraser and GAME OF THRONES' Charles Dance! Worthington is also producing the story of Australian and English journalists who covered the World War I battle!
GALLIPOLI STORY
MEN WHO WOULDN'T SHUT UP!
Three journalists, Charles Bean (Joel Jackson), Ellis Ashmead Bartlett (Hugh Dancy) and Phillip Schuler (Sam Worthington), arrive at Gallipoli with the invading British and Allied troops in 1915. They will report the war but are prevented from getting out the true story of an unfolding disaster. From encampment in Cairo to Anzac Cove to the evacuation, this is the story of journalists who will not accept that truth be the first casualty. This is the story of the men who will not shut up. The actions of these men will help change the course of the campaign, ensure that a strategic disaster becomes a legend of human heroism, and leave an impregnable mark on each  of their lives. Their commitment to the stories of the men turned the war from a strategic failure into a triumph of the human spirit.

DEZZY'S HISTORY LESSON
Gallipoli Battle was one of the biggest allied losses. It was fought by British and French armies battling for the city of Istanbul and the Gallipoli peninsula against the Ottoman forces. The aim was to secure a sea route to Russia. Many Australian and New Zealand soldiers fought as well and the campaign is often considered to mark the birth of national consciousness in those two countries. I've informed you before that Russell Crowe is directing another Gallipoli movie THE WATER DIVINER which will also star Olga Kurylenko and Jai Courtney following an Australian man who travels to Turkey after the Battle of Gallipoli to try and locate his three missing sons.

    1. WWI is filled with touching, moving, tragic and interesting stories. My own country, for example, lost about a million citizens in it and we only had about 4 million people before the war....
