Ted Kotcheff's Wake in Fright (1971)

Network Ten has commissioned a new adaptation of Wake In Fright, Kenneth Cook.s classic Australian novel.

Wake In Fright is the story of John Grant, a young school teacher who descends into his own personal nightmare after being stranded in the small outback mining town of Bundanyabba.

Cook.s novel also birthed Ted Kotcheff's iconic 1971 film, which starred Donald Pleasance, Chips Rafferty, Jack Thompson, John Meillon and Gary Bond.

Ten.s two-part series will be produced by Lingo Pictures in association with Endemol Shine Australia, with the assistance of Screen Australia and Screen Nsw.

The news follows on from Foxtel.s announcement earlier this week that it plans to adapt the iconic Picnic at Hanging Rock into a six-part series.

Network Ten head of drama Rick Maier said there are few Australian stories as original or compelling as Wake in Fright.
