Mingay will also soon be seen on screens as a co-host of new Seven game show Cannonball.
Following the success last year of Lang Hancock’s biopic, House Of Hancock, House of Bond tells the outrageous tale of one of Australia’s most controversial tycoons, whose excesses ran to women, fame, money, crime and everything in between. The mini-series co-stars Rachael Taylor (Jessica Jones) as Diana Bliss, Adrienne Pickering (Rake) as Eileen Bond and Sam Neill (House of Hancock) as Roland “Tiny” Rowland.
House of Bond is the rags-to-riches tale that will expose Alan “Bondy” Bond’s spectacular rise and fall in the 1970s and 80s as the cheeky, knockabout “Ten Pound Pom” who fought his way from the back alleys of Fremantle to become the richest man in Australia and one of our greatest sporting heroes for winning the America’s Cup. The mini-series asks was Bond a hero, a villain or a little bit of both?
The series will also star Gyton Grantley, Samantha Jade, Anne Looby, John Howard, Johnny Ruffo, Roy Billing, Paul Gleeson and Jack Campbell.
House of Bond is being produced by Cordell Jigsaw Zapruder, with executive producers Andy Ryan, Jo Rooney and Michael Cordell; producer Paul Bennett (House of Hancock, The Great Mint Swindle); writer Sarah Smith (Winter, Rescue Special Ops, Dripping in Chocolate); and with the assistance of Screen Australia and Screen NSW.
