Underbelly starts filming just days after Perish brothers convicted

A new series of Underbelly has started filming for Nine and production company Screentime.

The fifth series- called Underbelly: Badness – returns to Sydney’s modern crime history, set between 2001 and 2011.

The story is based on the murder of Terry Falconer by underworld figures Anthony Perish and Andrew Perish and the team of police dedicated to bringing the Perishs to justice.

Perish, 42, was sentenced to 18 years on Friday 13 April 2012 in the Nsw Supreme Court while his brother Andrew Perish, 41, was sentenced to at least nine years, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.

Des Monaghan, executive producer of the series and executive chairman of Screentime said: “This, the fifth series of Underbelly, is the most contemporary yet and is in marked contrast to Underbelly: Razor.
