The new Australian ABC drama has been the biggest drama hit for the ABC since The Doctor Blake Mysteries. Mediaweek sat down with producer David Jowsey to hear about the Mystery Road trilogy - two movies and a six-part drama series - and asked how ever did they afford that fabulous cast. It seems when Judy Davis signed on (her previous role earned an Emmy nomination) others wanted to work with one of Australia's finest on a rare Australian TV appearance.
