Summary *Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander viewers are advised that the following program may contain images and voices of people who have died* Family Confidential returns for a third, headline-grabbing series. Narrated by Gretel Killeen, this series showcases some of the biggest names in Australia and the world, and reveals the private story behind the public face. The first episode focuses on Deborra-Lee and Hugh Jackman. From humble Australian beginnings, the last decade has seen them catapulted into the heady stratosphere of international superstardom. But the Jackman's red carpet celebrity hides a very different reality. Known for having one of the most solid marriages in Hollywood, Deborra-Lee and Hugh have a commitment to family that goes further than most. Their determination to put their family first has taken them on an extraordinary journey that is now changing the lives of children and families across the globe. As the gossip tabloids have recounted, Deborra-Lee and Hugh met on the set of ABC prison drama Corelli. It was a meeting of hearts and minds - shared values shaped, perhaps most of all, by similar childhoods within single-parent families. But when it came to starting a family of their own, Deb and Hugh would run headlong into an entrenched anti-adoption culture that treated would-be adopting parents almost as criminals. It was the start of an extraordinary personal journey that has become a mission. Today, Deborra-Lee's crusade to ensure children in need of homes find loving new families has brought about historic change. While Hugh works on his next summer blockbuster, she's now taking the campaign for adoption reform all the way to the United Nations. PRODUCTION DETAILS: 6 x 30 minutes.
