The Code

Isis Town and Country - - Television -

Sun­day, ABC, 8.30pm

The likes of The Hour and House of Cards haveave typ­i­cally been the go-to se­ries for po­lit­i­cal thrillers, but they’ve now got some com­pe­ti­tion in Aus­tralian TV. The Code fol­lows the story of strug­gling journo Ned Banks (Dan Spiel­man) who, with the help of his brother Jesse (Ash­ley Zuk­er­man), un­cov­ers a video of an ac­ci­dent at a clas­si­fied gov­ern­ment re­search fa­cil­ity. What fol­lows is an ex­plo­sive pow­er­play that reaches through the po­lit­i­cal ranks to the prime min­is­ter, whose staff scram­ble to keep the ac­ci­dent un­der wraps. With an all­star cast in­clud­ing David Wen­ham (right), Lucy Law­less, Dan Wyl­lie and Aaron Ped­er­sen, thi­sis is drama of the high­est or­der.
