World Premiere of Season 2

“A mouthy blackfella for Prime Minister…I’d like to see that”

The new season of Total Control picks up where Senator Alex Irving’s (Deborah Mailman) crusade left off, as she vies to hold everyone to account - from the Prime Minister to the voting public. Loyalties are shifted and tested, as Alex struggles to walk the tightrope of doing what’s in the best interest for the people of Australia while keeping her personal integrity intact.

Deborah Mailman shines, as always, in a stunning ensemble including the creme de la creme of Aussie talent: Rachel Griffiths, Wayne Blair, Rob Collins and William McInnes. With the action taking place everywhere from the high-stakes halls of Canberra, to the pubs of rural Queensland, this new season of _Total Control _is everything you want in an Australian political drama.

Presented by ACMI, Film Victoria & Series Mania.

The first 2 episodes will screen in this program, followed by a conversation with Rachel Griffiths and series producer Darren Dale, hosted by Patricia Karvelas. Then make sure you catch the remaining episodes which are coming soon to the ABC in 2021.
