IN THE KNOW

EN­JOY sea­son three of Hannibal on Aus­tralian screens while it lasts – it’s the last you will see of it. The show, star­ring Gil­lian An­der­son, Mads Mikkelsen, Hugh Dancy and Lau­rence Fish­burne, will wrap on US screens in Septem­ber. Last year, sea­sons three and four were merged into a sin­gle sea­son, and NBC re­cently pulled the plug on fur­ther in­stal­ments amid mod­est rat­ings. It is cur­rently play­ing out here on Fox­tel.

CORDELL Jig­saw Zapruder and Chan­nel Nine are de­vel­op­ing a minis­eries on the life of the late Alan Bond, who died last month, aged 77. Bond was a for­mer pro­pri­etor of Nine, fa­mously buy­ing the net­work from Kerry Packer in 1987 for $ 1 bil­lion. Packer won the net­work back for a frac­tion of that when Bond later went bank­rupt. Bond was si­mul­ta­ne­ously known as the man who bankrolled Aus­tralia’s win­ning of the Amer­i­cas Cup and the big­gest fraud­ster in Aus­tralia’s history.

FANS still gob­s­macked by the re­cent fi nale of Went­worth sea­son three, take heart. Sea­son four will start fi lm­ing in Au­gust – although the es­ti­mated 10- month wait for its 2016 air­ing on Fox­tel seems like a sen­tence in it­self. The ex­plo­sive – lit­er­ally – sea­son three end­ing left fans des­per­ate to see what the fu­ture holds for Joan “The Freak” Fer­gu­son ( Pamela Rabe) Bea ( Danielle Cor­mack, right) and Franky ( Ni­cole da Silva).
