The record breaking feature film about Jimmy Barnes will be making its small screen debut this October.
The must see, JIMMY BARNES: WORKING CLASS BOY will premiere on Australian televisions Monday October 1st on Channel 7, just days after Jimmy will perform at the AFL Grand Final.
Based on the best-selling book and now a box office smash, JIMMY BARNES: WORKING CLASS BOY gives audiences an up close and personal insight into how the once unknown boy, James Dixon Swan, became the household name and Aussie icon we know today as Jimmy Barnes.
The film opened in Australian cinemas last month to critical acclaim and had the biggest opening ever for an Australian documentary. The documentary broke box office records, hitting 220 screens and reaching almost $500K over its opening weekend, and over $750K to date.
This landmark feature documentary is based on Jimmy’s acclaimed memoir, Working Class Boy. His self-penned book won the 2017 ABIA Award as Australia’s ‘Biography of The Year’ and spent a staggering 16 weeks at #1. It has sold over 250,000 copies, making it one of the biggest autobiographies in our country’s history.
