A biopic about Australian music mogul Molly Meldrum is heading to Tv.

The industry veteran will be the subject of an upcoming two-part small screen movie that is slated to air in Australia before it is screened in the U.S.

The film will follow Meldrum's career in the music industry, from his start in pop journalism to his work as a Tv regular, and is likely to include the life-threatening fall that left him in a coma in 2011.

According to Australia's Herald Sun newspaper, actor Grant Piro is tipped to play Meldrum following his recent portrayal of him in the Inxs: Never Tear Us Apart miniseries which aired earlier this year (14).
