Shane Warne’s colourful life to be presented in form of a miniseries
According to the reports, the late Shane Warne’s life will be documented in a mini-series. Warne died due to a heart attack on March 4 in Thailand. The former leg-spinner’s life was full of headlines, attracting controversies alongside achievements on the field. In 2005, his ten-year marriage with Simone broke down after the former was caught cheating. The couple had three children – Jackson, Summer, and Brooke.
Five years later, he went on to have a relationship with British actress Elizabeth Harley in late 2010. Within three years, the relationship broke down. Warne had said that this period was the best time of life. Meanwhile, Nine Entertainment Co is in talks with a production company to explore the life of the legend. The company’s head of drama, Andy Ryan has said that the series will be larger than life.
‘Warnie’s life was so full of drama, like the man himself,’ Ryan told The Sydney Morning Herald. ‘This miniseries will be larger than life – entertaining, confronting, thought-provoking.’
‘He was a sporting legend, a national treasure, international kind of icon, but he was also a larrikin, a rogue and a charmer and a flawed man.
‘The national outpouring of grief over his passing had shown us – if we needed telling – just what a sort of impact he’s had on the national conversation,’ Ryan said
The TV sources had earlier told the publication that the series will be released during the state memorial on March 30. Warne will get the state memorial at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) on March 30. However, the series will now be reportedly aired as early as next year.
