Cameras are rolling on Series 2 of the critically acclaimed ABC and Blackfella Films political thriller Total Control. Deborah Mailman and Rachel Griffiths are stepping back into their award-winning roles as women navigating the corridors of power, with Wayne Blair joining the cast as well as directing all six episodes. Filming is taking place in Sydney, Canberra and Broken Hill.
This season sees Alex (Mailman) running as an Independent, and coming up against the dirty tactics and well-financed machinery of the major parties. Can she survive Australia’s political system with her hands clean and her values intact?
