Network Ten has announced Matthew Le Nevez will bring to life the story of one of Australia’s greatest and most complex sporting heroes, Peter Brock, in the most anticipated television event of 2016 – Brock.
The stellar cast for the special television event will also include Ella Scott Lynch as Bev Brock, Steve Bisley as Harry Firth and Natalie Bassingthwaite as Julie Bamford.

Endemol Shine Australia CEO Mark Fennessy said: “We’re extremely proud to confirm such an extraordinary and talented cast for this profound and unique Australian story. This really is big event television at its very best.”
