Filming begins on Nine’s Warnie

Production commenced this week on Warnie, the 9Network’s must see drama event of 2023.

Over two big nights, Warnie will pay tribute to one of the greatest Australians of all time, the Aussie larrikin who lived life to the full.

There has never been and never will be another like him. 

Shane Warne was an Aussie legend, a cultural icon, a cricketing genius, a charmer and a loveable rogue.

Warnie, as he was affectionately known to all, transcended cricket.

Like all great characters, he inspired extreme reactions from people from all walks of life, in Australia and around the world.

During pre-production, the 9Network and Screentime have met with the Warne family who have offered their support for the series. The 9Network looks forward to collaborating with the family as filming continues.

Warnie stars Alex Williams (Underground: The Julian Assange Story, The Heights) as Shane Warne,  Anthony Hayes (Gold, Light Between Oceans) and Marny Kennedy (Between Two Worlds, Janet King), supported by a stellar cast including Jacquie Brennan (Wentworth, Informer 3838), Jeremy Stanford (Winners & Losers, Wentworth), Ben Hall (Neighbours, Devil’s Playground), Tom Stokes (The Railway Man, Equals), Darcy Kent (New Gold Mountain, Spreadsheet), and newcomer Shanti Kali

Warnie is produced for the 9Network by Screentime, a Banijay company.
