After the success the ABC had with its TV adaptation of Christos Tsiolkas’ The Slap, it’s no surprise that they’ve jumped at the chance to screen an adaptation of his latest novel Barracuda. The novel, which was met with rave reviews, tells the story of Danny Kelly, a Greek-Australian swimmer whose dreams of competing at the Sydney 2000 Olympics are derailed. The four-part series will be directed by Robert Connolly and stars newcomer Elias Anton alongside a cast of acting veterans led by Rachel Griffiths.
