2010: Underbelly: The Golden Mile
Main article: Underbelly: The Golden Mile
Season 3 will be titled "The Golden Mile" and will be the sequel to A Tale of Two Cities a prequel to the first season, starting in 1988. The season will take place in Kings Cross, New South Wales, and specifically a street in Sydney referred to as "the Golden Mile". Longueville Road, in the quiet North Shore suburb of Lane Cove in Sydney, has a similar layout and width to that of Darlinghurst Road in Kings Cross, and is therefore the location for some of the scenes. Longueville Road and the Coolangatta shopfronts are being transformed into Kings Cross nightspots such as The Love Machine, with filming to begin there on September 7, 2009.[3] Characters expected to be in this season include John Ibrahim, Kim Hollingsworth, the Bayeh Brothers, Trevor Haken and Chook Fowler. The season is also expected to include the Wood Royal Commission in 1995. A statement released by the Nine Network says "Underbelly: The Golden Mile is the story of the excesses of the empire, the collapse of the empire, the chaos that followed, and the ultimate victory of strong and honest police ... seen through the eyes of some of the most sexy, charming, corrupt and deadly people of the time."[4]. Nine's head of drama, Jo Horsburgh, confirmed that several characters from season two will return for season three. Filming is expected to be concluded by the end of the year.[5][6] The first episode will set to air as a two-hour telemovie on April 11, 2010.[7]

heres last season

Underbelly: A Tale of Two Cities is a 13-part Australian television mini-series loosely based on real events that stemmed from the marijuana trade centred around the New South Wales town of Griffith. The timeline of the series is the years between 1976 and 1987. Underbelly: A Tale of Two Cities primarily depicts the Mr. Asia drug syndicate and its influence on crime in Australia. Among the characters presented are real-life criminals Robert Trimbole, Terry Clark, George Freeman, Christopher Dale Flannery and the Kane Brothers. The mini-series is a prequel to the 2008 production Underbelly, which was about the Melbourne gangland killings and forms part of the Underbelly series.



And the 1st season


Underbelly is a 13-part Australian television mini-series, retelling the real events of the 19952004 gangland war in Melbourne. The series is based on the book Leadbelly: Inside Australia's Underworld, by The Age journalists John Silvester and Andrew Rule.[1] Underbelly began screening on 13 February 2008 on the Nine Network in all states and territories except Victoria, due to a court injunction.[2] An edited version of the series premiered in Victoria on 14 September 2008 after the injunction was partially lifted, although only the first five episodes were shown.[3] The series depicts the key players in Melbourne's criminal underworld, including the Carlton Crew and their rival, Carl Williams. Underbelly is produced by the Australian Film Finance Corporation,[4] in association with Film Victoria.[5] The executive producers are Des Monaghan and Jo Horsburgh.[4]
The lead-up to Underbelly involved a heavy marketing campaign which covered radio, print, billboards and an increased online presence, including the use of social networking tools.[6] At a reported cost of $500,000,[7] both this marketing investment and potentially millions of dollars in advertising revenue were claimed to be put at risk by the Victorian Supreme Court's injunction,[7] as the series was expected to attract 800,000 to 1 million viewers in Victoria alone.[8] The injunction was put in place to ensure that upcoming criminal trials were not unfair to the accused, because the series contained fictionalised re-enactments of several disputed events. Underbelly was a critical and ratings success when ultimately aired,[1] being described as "Australia's best ever crime drama".[9] The opening double episodes, which aired on 13 February, attracted an average of 1,320,000 viewers nationally, minus Victoria.[10]
Every episode of the 13-part series was soon made available for download on a range of sites, with the Nine Network saying it was considering legal action.[11] The legal DVD of Underbelly was released on 8 May 2008, a day after the final episode was aired on television. Due to the legal suppression, the release was not able to be distributed through any retail or rental outlets in Victoria or on the internet.[12] The Nine Network then aired a second season, prequel to the series, entitled Underbelly: A Tale of Two Cities and recently a third season, Underbelly: The Golden Mile which aired on April 11th 2010.[13]
