CHANNEL 10 is set to make a six-part mini-series based on the "Milperra Massacre" from the makers of Underbelly.
Bikie Wars: Brothers in Arms will detail events leading up to the firearm battle between rival bikie gangs on September 2, 1984.
Six bikies and a 14-year-old bystander were killed in the Sydney suburb of Milperra during a bloody battle between members of the Comancheros and Bandidos bikie gangs.
Ten program chief David Mott described Bikie Wars: Brothers in Arms as “one of the most sought-after properties in television”.
“This event mini-series will shine a light on this fascinating tribal culture and its code of honour – as intriguing now as it was when the word ‘Milperra’ became synonymous with one of our (Australia’s) blackest days,” Mott said.
Ten is yet to announce the cast for the mini-series.
