Starring an outstanding lineup of Australian talent including Claudia Karvan, Toby Schmitz, Brett Tucker, Georgina Naidu, Sean Keenan, Miranda Tapsell, Andrew McFarlane and Jane Hall, the eight-part series Newton's Law is the 'Upstairs, Downstairs' of legal dramas - fuelled episodically by the illuminating contrast between the lucrative barristers' caseload upstairs and the often haphazard or unfortunate legal tangles unravelled in the solicitor's office ten storeys below - and spiced with the ongoing frisson between Josephine and the seductive man she knows she should never ever fall for.
With her low-flying Solicitor's practice incinerated by a disgruntled client, her marriage collapsing and motherhood fast losing its charm, Josephine Newton's old uni' friend and not-so secret admirer, Lewis Hughes, persuades her to resume her briefly glorious career at the Bar. As she rises to the challenge, though, trading the benefits of her brilliant mind for a berth in the lofty glamour of Knox Chambers, Josephine realises it's not so easy to leave her entourage behind.
