Crownies (ABC-1 2011, Todd Lasance, Ella Scott Lynch)

Published

on

Drama series Crownies takes us into the professional and personal lives of five young solicitors trying to make it in an increasingly fast paced and egocentric world and where there is a huge divide between the newly arrived and those at the top. Ben McMahon is something of a charmer, especially when it comes to women and comes from a renowned legal family; Lina Badir is Australian-Palestinian who is highly ambitious; Erin O’Shaughnessy is from the Western Suburbs of Sydney and finds it hard to not get emotionally involved; Richard Stirling is a research specialist who likes a joke and Tatum Novak is highly self assured despite being the youngest of the quintet and least experienced.

Other key players include senior prosecutor Janet King, office bully Tracey Samuels, dedicated Andy Campbell and David Sinclair the state’s number one prosecutor.

The series debuted with a feature length special combining the first two episodes.

Despite only running for one series the show managed to get a spin off with Janet King focusing on the character played by Marta Dusseldorp in the show.

Australian Gangster (Channel 7 2018)

Published

on

By

Channel 7

Australian Gangster is a crime drama that will have a distinctly modern vibe. No real plot details have been released as yet but it’s being talked of a grand tale of crime in Western Sydney where glitz and glamour vie with drugs and laundered money. The behind the scenes crew have impressive pedigrees – it’s been written by Gregor Jordan (of Two Hands fame) and Romper Stomper author Malcolm Knox.

Producer John Edwards said “Just as Two Hands was an oblique take on a familiar form a generation ago, Australian Gangster will be a genre-bending crime drama series – confronting, affronting, touching and often laugh-out-loud crazy.”

Filming will begin early next year in and around Sydney.
