NEW DRAMA FROM MISS FISHER TEAM
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.
