Banijay Rights has sold new four-part drama Bali 2002 to ITV in the U.K. The mini-series explores the everyday heroes directly impacted by the terrorist attacks on the Indonesian island 20 years ago. The drama will air on new streaming service ITVX next year.

Co-produced by Banijay labels Endemol Shine Australia and Screentime for Stan and 9Network in Australia, the deal marks the first international sale for this drama series.

Bali 2002 recounts the tragic events of October 12, 2002, when the island was shattered by a terrorist attack on two of Kuta Beach’s busiest nightclubs. Local Balinese and Australian and British tourists scrambled to rescue the injured, whilst the Australian and Indonesian authorities mobilized to evacuate survivors, identify victims and investigate what really took place. Amidst this chaos, heroes arose from the most unlikely places.
