Ray Shoesmith (Scott Ryan) is a hitman with a conscience, a not-all-bad guy trying to keep his personal relationships separate from his work. This series is based on Ryan’s 2005 film, The Magician, and is directed by mate Nash Edgerton, who has tried for years to get the project up and running. Their efforts have paid off. It has a distinctly Aussie tone and film buffs will enjoy watching for Edgerton’s signature move: casting famous directors in cameos. With Damon Herriman and Brooke Satchwell.
