TV Adaptation of Cloudstreet

"The Daily Telegraph", out of Sydney, is reporting that Screentime, the television production company reponsible for "Underbelly", is aiming to produce a television adaptation of Cloudstreet by Tim Winton.

The TV adaptation has been commissioned by Foxtel for the network's Showtime channel and author Winton says it was important his 1991 released novel maintained its typically Australian feel. "For me it's always been important for Cloudstreet to be a homegrown production and I'm really pleased to know that, through (this) collaboration, it can be made here in Australia," he says. "As the book's twentieth anniversary approaches, this is happy news."
