New four-part drama Bali 2002 to stream exclusively on ITVX
ITVX confirms that Bali 2002, the new series that explores the terrorist attacks on the Indonesian island 20 years ago, will stream exclusively on ITVX from 16th March.
Bali 2002 is an inspiring and emotional four-part drama that explores how everyday heroes from Bali, Australia and beyond, defied the odds to bring order from chaos and hope from despair during the 2002 Bali bombings.
Co-produced by Banijay labels Endemol Shine Australia and Screentime for Stan and 9Network in Australia, and distributed internationally by Banijay Rights, the series was developed in consultation with those directly impacted by the tragedy.
On October 12, 2002, the island paradise of Bali was shattered by a terrorist attack on two of Kuta Beach’s busiest nightclubs. Both the local Balinese, and international tourists scrambled to escape, to rescue the injured and to comfort the dying. Australian and Indonesian authorities not only mobilised to evacuate survivors and identify victims, but to hunt down those responsible.
Amidst this chaos, heroes arose to defy the odds from the most unlikely places and cultures united in the search for healing, justice and- meaning.
Bali 2002 features a stellar cast led by AACTA Award-winner Rachel Griffiths (Total Control, The Wilds), Richard Roxburgh (Catherine The Great, The Crown), Claudia Jessie (Bridgerton), Sean Keenan (Glitch, Wake In Fright), Ewen Leslie (Pieces Of Her, The Luminaries), Srisacd Sacdpraseuth (Mystery Road, The Code), Arka Das (Top Of The Lake, Lion) and newcomer Sri Ayu Jati Kartika.
