Last King of the Cross will detail the rise of infamous nightclub mogul John Ibrahim

Nothing is worth more than blood.

The rags to riches story of nightclub mogul John Ibrahim has fascinated Australians for decades and now his autobiography Last King Of The Cross is being brought to life on the small screen.

The ten-part-series, which airs on Paramount+ from February 17, stars Lincoln Younes (Grand Hotel) and Claude Jabbour (Stateless) as brothers John and Sam Ibrahim respectively.

There may be guns, intrigue, and money at play, at the heart of the story is just two brothers “who organise the street but lose each other in their ascent to power.”

Inspired by John’s autobiography of the same name, the 10-part serialised drama will track John’s rise from a poverty-stricken immigrant with no education, no money, and no prospects, to become Australia’s most infamous nightclub mogul in Sydney’s Kings Cross – barely half a mile long with every form of criminality on offer.

Joining Lincoln and Claude on the Golden Mile are Ian McShane (Lovejoy) Callan Mulvey (300: Rise Of An Empire), Tess Haubrich (Spiderhead), Claude Jabbour (Eden), Maria Tran (Echo 8), Matt Nable (Riddick) and Damian Walshe-Howling (Janet King).
