The Family Law
Comedy Drama | 6 x 30 mins
Welcome to The Family Law, the story of a sprawling Chinese-Australian family who are unlike any you’ve ever met. And yet, they may also be disturbingly familiar … Based on the hit memoir of the same name, The Family Law is a black comedy series set on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast over a hot summer. Our guide: 14-year-old Benjamin Law—clarinet-playing middle child; skinny as a rake; slightly self-obsessed—who has aspirations to be a tv star despite a mouth jammed full of orthodontic work. Over six episodes, we follow Benjamin as he strives for tv stardom whilst trying to stop his parents from splitting up, usually with disastrous results. For the Laws, all communication can lead to misunderstanding and unlikely comedy stems from tragedy. This is a show about sabotaged expectations, growing pains, finding your place in the world, and the strange embarrassment we feel towards the people we’re supposed to love the most: our family.

This is the story of the writers who went to Gallipoli.
The reporters who did not shut up.
It has been said that truth is the first casualty of war. It was never more accurate than during the audacious Gallipoli campaign of 1915, where the Allied forces attempted to secure Constantinople by way of seizing the Dardanelles from the Ottoman Empire. Deadline Gallipoli brings together the high-octane drama of the battlefront and the personal journeys of the soldiers who have signed up for a war they believe will be glorious. It is the untold story of the journalists – Charles Bean, Ellis Ashmead Bartlett, Phillip Schuler& Keith Murdoch – who find themselves appalled by how the battle is being managed. They are flawed human beings, workaholics, and womanisers,But each is profoundly affected by the bravery and wholesale slaughter he witnesses. As the atrocities and horror mount, the journalists are subjected to government censorship and find themselves unable to report the truth they nevertheless have to bear witness to. Though it is understood that truth may sometimes be a necessary casualty in war, the futility and carnage starts to weigh heavily on them.Some of them mount an offensive of their own with extraordinary results. These are the first truly embedded war correspondents whose actions and defiance ignite a change in the campaign’s course and whose commitment to the stories of fighting men turn it from a strategic failure into legend.

Comedy Drama | 6 x 27 minsSimon Chan has returned to his hometown after many years training in a faraway martial arts temple. He is a born hero, defender of the weak and champion of the honest people of Cabramatta… Well, not really. The truth is Simon was at Marshall’s Art School, in Melbourne, but he’d rather risk his life and perpetuate the lie, than disappoint his mother. The world Simon returns to is familiar yet oddly different to the Cabramatta you may know. It’s a mix of Asian traditions, absurd superstition and colourful contradictions. A world where brutal gangs terrorise the community with violence and bad karaoke singing; where a magical duck recipe can cast a horny spell and where illegally pirated movies are the new crack cocaine. In this town, evil spirits attack nail-and-beauty parlours, council debates are settled via K-Pop dance battles and car parking spots are more valuable than gold. The only thing that stands against all this craziness is Simon. When the ferocious gang leader Kai Le threatens to destroy his mother’s beauty parlour-cum-DVD shop, Simon is joined by his two best friends: a quick-buck entrepreneur called Egg and a groin-kicking kung fu girl named Petal. But can they really protect Simon’s family from the violent gang lord? Will they uncover the corrupt Mayor’s secret plan for the town? And can Simon keep his mind off the mayor’s daughter for long enough to be (or at least pretend to be) the person everyone thinks he is? Cabramatta needs a hero. Instead they got Simon, Egg and Petal.

When the brutal and charistmatic Pommie (Stapleton) tracks him down, Sparra finds himself falling back into the world that he thought he left behind.

As Pommie exerts his influence over Sparra to lure him back into crime and the life they once had, Sparra realises that he’ll have to fight to keep the past from ruining his future.

Starring Bryan Brown & Sam Neill People used to say growing old was a crime. Lennie and Ted are out to prove them wrong. Ted McCabe, a retired cop, and Lennie Cahill, a retired crim, get together to solve crimes, unravel scams and make some much-needed cash, while avoiding the wrath of the police and the underworld. Sure, their history is muddy – the last time they met, Lennie was part of a gang that pulled off an armed car robbery during which Ted was shot, Lennie was arrested and the other gang members either died or got away (with the loot). But now that Lennie has been released from gaol, and Ted’s been pensioned off by the department, there’s something they both want: to find the remaining members of the gang. Lennie wants his cut of the loot. Ted wants to find out who shot him. And they reckon there’s a likely shot it’s the same fella. The pursuit of this mastermind binds Lennie and Ted together over the course of eight episodes and – along the way – they use their collective skills and contacts to solve various other crimes, scams and puzzles.
