New television series about Jonah Lomu to dramatise his life

A two-part mini-series about All Blacks great Jonah Lomu will air on Sunday and Monday on Three.

After Lomu's death in 2015, just shy of his 40th birthday, it emerged that the rugby star's life wasn't as simple as some may have believed and that from childhood, he's faced many internal battles and struggles.

Actors Joel Tobeck and Phil Peleton, who appear on the new series, spoke to The AM Show.
