Acorn TV's New Aussie Legal Dramedy


Debuting on DVD from Acorn TV March 6, 2018

"A Comic (and Australian) Good Wife" - The New York Times
"Intelligent, stylish and nicely romantic" - The Australian
"A welcome break from TV's parade of dysfunctional antiheroes" - The Guardian
"An impressive cast...a good, solid Aussie production" - DeciderTV (Australia)

From the team behind one of Australia's most successful series in Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, the new Aussie legal dramedy NEWTON'S LAW debuts on DVD on March 6, 2018 from Acorn TV, an RLJ Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ: RLJE) brand. Fast-paced and sparkling with wit, Newton's Law centers around a suburban solicitor (award-winning Aussie actress Claudia Karvan, Jack Irish, co-creator of The Heart Guy) who attempts to return to her briefly glorious career at the Bar.

The DVD 3-Disc Set features 8 episodes, plus bonus behind-the-scenes featurettes and cast interviews ($49.99, Newton's Law made its exclusive U.S. premiere in September 2017 on Acorn TV. Called a "glorious streaming essential must-have" (The Hollywood Reporter), Acorn TV is North America's most popular streaming service focused on British and international television.

When her offices are firebombed by an angry client, consulting solicitor Josephine Newton (Karvan) is forced to take a new job as a barrister at Knox, a high-powered legal firm where her old flame Lewis (Toby Schmitz, Black Sails) works. Worried about leaving behind her former clients turned colleagues, Josephine sets up a new legal office in the building's basement for Johnny (Sean Keenan, Glitch), a reformed car thief, and Helena (Georgina Naidu, SeaChange), a brilliant legal mind with a crippling fear of courtrooms.

As Josephine tackles high-profile cases with Lewis upstairs, she secretly consults with Helena and Johnny downstairs. Throw in a teenage daughter and a husband (Brett Tucker, The Americans) who doesn't seem to understand the meaning of a trial separation, and Josephine's new life is more hectic than ever. Funny and quirky, Newton's Law provides "a welcome break from TV's parade of dysfunctional antiheroes" (The Guardian).
