Two of Australia’s most popular stars Deborah Mailman and Rachel Griffiths, return to the corridors of power, in a new series of the hit drama Total Control.

 

The first series - a standout success, embraced by critics and audiences alike - saw political newcomer Alex Irving (Deborah Mailman) engineering a remarkable coup, unseating the Prime Minister and the woman who betrayed her, Rachel Anderson (Rachel Griffiths). But now Alex faces the ultimate test in a democratic system: the nation is going to the polls and she will have to face the judgement of the people.

 

Alex’s passionate determination to make things better for her people appears doomed to failure. She turns her back on the entrenched ways of doing politics and declares she’ll stand for her home electorate as an Independent. As the pressure on Alex intensifies, she will have to make a choice, between her own integrity and her increasingly desperate and dangerous ambition.

 

Production investment from ABC and Screen Australia’s Indigenous Department. Financed with support from Screen NSW and Screen Canberra.
