Starring an outstanding line-up of Australian talent, the eagerly anticipated eight-part drama series Newton’s Law launches Thursday 9th February at 8.30pm on ABC and ABC iview.
Made by the team behind Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries, Newton’s Law stars Claudia Karvan, Toby Schmitz, Georgina Naidu, Sean Keenan, Brett Tucker, Miranda Tapsell, Andrew McFarlane and Jane Hall.
The series centres on Josephine Newton, a suburban solicitor with an over developed sense of responsibility who attempts to return to her briefly glorious stint at the Bar.
When Josephine’s (Claudia Karvan) low-flying solicitors practice is incinerated by a disgruntled client, she is persuaded by her old Uni friend and not-so-secret admirer, Lewis Hughes (Toby Schmitz) to trade the benefits of her brilliant mind for a berth in the lofty glamour of Knox Chambers. With her office destroyed, her marriage collapsing and motherhood fast losing its charm, Josephine decides it’s time to take her own aspirations off the back burner and resume her barrister’s robes.
If only it were that easy to leave her old life behind!
