From the writer, director and producers behind last year's hit Paper Giants: The Birth of Cleo comes Howzat! Kerry Packer's War. The two-part miniseries will focus on Packer (Lachy Hulme, replacing Rob Carlton) and his extraordinary rise to become the most influential businessman in the history of Australian sport.

Taking on the cricket establishment, a young Kerry Packer set up a rebel competition with the world’s best players, who abandoned their loyalty to their national teams to join the breakaway competition.

Despite poor crowds and low television ratings at first, a brave new world of sports broadcasting had begun, ushering in the era of one-day cricket played under lights.
