SIXTIES rock band The Easybeats are the next local heroes to get the TV miniseries treatment.
The band, best known for classic hit Friday On My Mind, will be showcased in a two-part series on the ABC.
The Easybeats is now being filmed in Sydney and will air later this year.
The band will be played by relative newcomers — Christian Byers plays singer Stevie Wright, with Will Rush as George Young, Mackenzie Fearnley as Harry Vanda, Du Toit Bredenkamp as Dick Diamonde and Arthur McBain as Snowy Fleet.
The Code and Rush star Ashley Zukerman will play Ted Albert, who signed the band and founded Albert Records, later instrumental in launching AC/DC.
