Soap World - - THE GOSS! -

The duo be­hind hit drama Miss Fisher’s Mur­der Mys­ter­ies has cre­ated a new drama for the ABC called New­ton’s Law. DEB COX and FIONA EAGGER’s se­ries will fo­cus on sub­ur­ban so­lic­i­tor Josephine New­ton who makes a re­turn to the Bar af­ter her prac­tice is burnt to the ground by a dis­grun­tled client. New­ton’s old friend, Lewis Hughes, who has a soft spot for New­ton, per­suades her to set up shop in the glam­orous Knox Cham­bers.

On top of New­ton’s work woes are a col­laps­ing mar­riage and the re­al­i­ties of moth­er­hood. “We’re very happy to bring an­other strong fe­male pro­tag­o­nist to the screen, this time in mod­ern dress, with a mod­ern woman’s dilemma of try­ing to do too much for too many,” say Cox and Eagger. Film­ing starts in Mel­bourne later this year.
