Box set includes series 1 and 2.
In this gripping legal drama, Senior Crown Prosecutor Janet King (Marta Dusseldorp) returns to work after a year’s maternity leave determined to prove she still has her edge. But Janet finds a very different DPP. The Attorney General has directed there be a closer relationship with police, and Chief Superintendent Jack Rizzoli (Vince Colosimo) is taking an unnerving interest in prosecutions, while ambitious ex-police prosecutor and DPP newcomer, Owen Ramsey (Damian Walshe-Howling) isn’t afraid to bend the rules to score a conviction. When Janet’s first seemingly straightforward case escalates into a shocking murder, both she and the DPP solicitors are propelled into a complex web of corruption and conspiracy that shakes the police, judiciary and government to their core. The case will threaten Janet’s career, her family, and ultimately her life.
With gun crime exploding in the suburbs, Janet King (Marta Dusseldorp) is handpicked by a nervous government to head a Royal Commission into the surge of recent shootings.
Unlike the world of the DPP, the Royal Commission allows Janet and her team to become the investigators – they can raid, interrogate and have police seconded to them. Conscripting solicitors Lina Badir (Andrea Demetriades), Richard Stirling (Hamish Michael), as well as the ambitious Owen Mitchell (Damian Walshe-Howling) as Counsel Assisting, with Detective Inspector Andy Campbell (Christopher Morris) as Police Liaison, Janet and her team peel back the complex layers of intrigue underpinning the illicit trade in weapons.
As Janet exercises her powers and begins uncovering the truth, criminal and political forces begin to stir, bent on shutting down the Royal Commission, even if it means destroying Janet in the process.
