Channel 9 Pushes Forward Schapelle Movie

(c)Channel 9

In a brazen move, Channel 9 have pushed forward the Schapelle Corby telemovie to Sunday night 8:30 instead of it’s original air date on Monday 8:40pm.  So confident that Australians are now showing even more interest in the story than ever, this now puts the Schapelle telemovie in direct viewing competition with part one of channel 7’s INXS biopic.

Channel 9 announced that due to the building interest in the Schapelle Corby story (Schapelle is expected to be released onto parole within the next few days after serving 9 years in prison for drug trafficking) they will move the movie to this Sunday.

To this day, the story of convicted drug smuggler Schapelle Corby is one of the most opinion driven news stories, splitting people right down the middle.  There’s those who believe she’s guilty and then there’s the Corby supporters who firmly believe she is innocent.  The story was front page of newspapers and magazines Australia wide and spawned a slew of tell-all books, all claiming to have the truth.

Now, the telemovie based off the book Sins of the Father: The Untold Story Behind Schapelle Corby’s Ill-fated Drug Run by investigative journalist Eamonn Duff (and widely criticised by pro Corby fanatics as being a load of bull plop) has been turned into a telemovie for channel 9 starring Krew Boylan and Jacinta Stapleton.
