Australian TV Warriors, The (ABC 2017, Lisa McCune, Gordon Churchill) Published 2 years ago on April 6, 2017 Warriors explores the elite world of professional sport through the eyes of two new recruits – plucked from obscurity to fame and fortune – and two established players – as they are thrown together in a share house in Melbourne. With temptation at every turn and a lot of football, there’s no guarantee these young men will run through the banner for the first game of the season. After a nationwide casting search, 18 year old Gordon Churchill makes his acting debut as Maki, the number one draft pick. Gordon was discovered in the remote Indigenous community of Warmun in the Kimberley Region. The series also introduces WAAPA graduate Nelson Baker as Zane, the number five draft pick. Lisa McCune is the team’s tireless communications manager; Vince Colosimo is Coach Mark ‘Spinner’ Spinotti charged with getting the wooden spooners back in finals contention. Club president, footy legend Bill Shepherd, is played by John Howard, returning to the world of Australian Rules Football after starring in the 1980’s classic The Club. Comedian Ben Knight is Scottie who is returning from his third knee reconstruction, and Reece Milne (Home and Away) plays Doc, the seasoned team-captain charged with showing the rookies the ropes. Newcomer Tasia Zalar is Zane’s sister Ava, who joins the boys to try out for the women’s league. cast Gordon Churchill as Maki Birrawuy Reece Milne as Doc Shepherd Ben Knight as Scottie Watson Nelson Baker as Zane Phillips Lisa McCune as Deb Van Exel John Howard as Bill Shepherd Vince Colosimo as Coach Mark “Spinner” Spinotti Tasia Zalar as Ava Phillips key behind the scenes crew Tony Briggs as Creator Robert Connolly as Creator John Bell as Writer Ben Morieson as Production Designer Michael Chisholm as Costime Designer Daniel Rankine aka Trials as Composer show type comedy drama broadcast from 12 April 2017 network and production companies ABC – Screen Australia – Film Victoria ABC AustraliaComedy DramaJohn HowardLisa McCuneTVVince Colisomo Advertisement advertisement and this just in Episodes21 hours ago Strike Back: Season 7 Episode 5 (Cinemax Fri 22 Feb 2019) Episode 5: Following a high-speed jungle ambush in Myanmar, the suitcase nukes end up in the hands of Jean-Baptiste Zaza...
